The limits of my language
are the limits of my world.
– Ludwig Wittgenstein
Why do this?
You can tell a lot about a person from the clothes that they wear. When it comes to language, words are your clothes. They add variety, emotion, intelligence, diplomacy and style to your communication. When it comes to your professional communication, the words that you choose are as important as your jacket and smart shoes.
As a non-native speaker of English, words can be a difficult challenge and you can often feel uncertain about whether you are choosing the correct ones. So many professionals end up using the safe, simple and comfortable words they have always used.
But this means you are not choosing words which show your intellect, authority, professional status and value to your organisation. And in a world where we judge people from their appearance, this will damage your professional image and even lead to you not getting the rewards which you deserve.
Learn to master the professional vocabulary usage like as a non-native English speaking professional who needs to communicate with excellence
in the global business world!
What are the benefits?
You will start by mastering the secret vocabulary system which native-English speaking executives always subconsciously use to show their intellect, authority and high professional status – a simple system which we can guarantee that no one ever taught you throughout those long and painful English lessons of your past.
You will learn to employ this system whenever you speak and write in English so that you always look like your native-English speaking colleagues. This approach will have the added advantages of unlocking the hundreds of English words which you know but cannot use as well as enabling you to stop translating from your first language and to think in English.
Furthermore, you will discover a surprising, free online tool which will give you the instant ability to correctly use over 250,000 English words when you communicate.

I expected the EMPOWERED AUDIT REPORTS workshop to be a very dry and theoretical course with instructions on how we write reports in Vodafone.
But to tell you the truth, I came home and I said to my wife: “Susan, today I’ve had the most amazing training I’ve ever had!” – and I’ve had some great training!
The training was fantastic – the difference being that the trainer really knew how to bring the message across. The training was very interactive. It not only taught me how to write in the most efficient and professional way but also how to make a powerful connection with the reader.
All in all, we not only learnt how to write reports, but we also learnt how to communicate effectively which I think is the key. That was the real added value of this course.
Senior Internal Auditor
As a training experience, EMPOWERED FINANCIAL REPORTS took our attention from the very start – not just me, but the whole group.
People were saying: “Wow! It’s 9 o’clock on the day of the first session and we have already defined exactly what the key problem is with our report writing.”
I would definitely recommend this financial report writing training. It’s not just about the books and the materials, but it’s important to learn things that you will remember at work and know how to use.
I immediately applied what I learnt from the training into my real business life. The expertise of the trainer and how the training was delivered was the key to success here. What is delivered is important, but how it was delivered was what I would also like to recommend. In this sense, it was better than 99% of the training I have had till now.
Corporate Business Account Manager
The reason why I chose this training is because I’m writing emails every day – thousands of them! I’ve been trying to handle this volume of writing in the best way possible using some templates which I’ve created, but I wanted to gain more power and control over my word choice.
The training was long enough, and the content was very rich. Also, the Self-Study Tasks and Toolkit were all real lifesavers. I would definitely recommend TOTAL WORD POWER to everybody. After the training, I said to myself, “I wish I’d had this beforehand. So I advise all HR professionals to offer this to the employees in their companies; especially as early as possible in their careers.
What’s more, the TOTAL WORD POWER trainer, Andy Kovacs, was brilliant. He knew how to put the right focus on the training topics and how to keep attention high throughout. He gave the right amount of information, and his performance was meticulous and very impressive. It was a great experience – interesting, engaging and interactive!
Deputy Head of Internal Audit
I think that the topic of report writing is absolutely crucial and, to be honest, I thought that it could not be taught. Writing skills are learnt through on-the-job experience and they are not an easy skill to acquire. EMPOWERED AUDIT REPORTS completely changed my opinion on this and now I’m spending all of my effort to use all of the writing techniques that I learnt.
How to make your sentences shorter; how to get rid of unclear sentences which can confuse the reader; eliminating jargon and terminology; and how to be more economic in the report – these were the most important report writing lessons which I learnt from the course.
But this training offered so much more than just report writing techniques. We learnt so much about the wider subject of effective communication.It’s essential to understand what your stakeholders want to see in your report and to fulfill these objectives. This is a big part of our mission and the course really helped me with this.
I loved that it was so interactive. You have theory and then you have direct participation, so we put what we had learnt straight into practice.
What I also really loved was the trainer’s exceptional presentation techniques. Just attending the training has taught me so much about how to present and how to build up my message logically and make it get through to my audience.
I immediately recommended this training to my line manager, Guido, and to our Country Head. I told them: “You must participate in this training because I’m now going to be using these great report writing techniques which you’re not even aware of.”
Compliance & Antibribery Manager
In my job, I generally communicate with people by writing emails – and it’s really important that the information which I give is short, clear and well-explained. However, when I choose words in English, my explanations often get long.
TOTAL WORD POWER helped me to solve this. I learnt how to choose the right words – professional and sophisticated words – so my emails have become more economic and the writing process has become faster and more efficient. So I’m doing my job so much faster than before.
The delivery of TOTAL WORD POWER was very clear and detailed. Also, it was very visually engaging, so this helped to keep my interest throughout the 2 Live Learning Webinars. It was very practical and it was very interesting.
I would definitely recommend TOTAL WORD POWER to anybody who needs to write lots of emails in English in their job.
