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.

native-English speaking executive to express your ideas, opinions, feelings and authority
I expected the Audit Report Writing 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 report writing 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.

As a training experience, Financial Report Writing Workshop 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.
