By working with me, you can significantly improve your English communication skills. Your colleagues/clients will be able to understand you clearly. You will be able to expand your business English vocabulary to better express yourself and have the confidence to participate in meetings and write professional business emails in English.

INFORMATION & PRICING

ENGLISH FOR MOTIVATED PROFESSIONALS PROGRAM

The problem at this point is that your English is affecting your job performance. Oftentimes, you feel embarrassed because your colleagues/clients have a hard time understanding you when you speak in English. You don’t understand or know how to use English idioms, expressions, and phrases to express yourself. You feel challenged when participating in meetings in English or writing professional business emails. Also, you don’t feel comfortable or confident giving presentations in English. Your presentations can be boring and the audience loses interest very quickly. Oftentimes, you feel self-conscious and don’t know what to do with your hands and/or body. You hate the fact that you sound like a robot and lose your personality during the presentation.

What scares you most is that you know, if you don’t change, poor presentation skills will impact your job performance and hinder your career progression. You are passionate about your messages, but how would you feel if no one ever remembers them? You know, if you don’t perform your best, your reputation will be hurt and your family too, because they are depending on you. What scares you most is that you know, if you don’t change, you will get stuck with your current position and miss future career opportunities. You will not be able to best support your family or grow yourself to the next level.                                                                                                 

Rest assured, you are not alone!

With my help, you will have the confidence to give presentations in English that are engaging and handle all the tricky questions. You will know how to use your body to communicate with your audience and use your voice to present your authentic self. By working with me, you can significantly improve your English communication skills. Your colleagues/clients will be able to understand you clearly. You will be able to expand your business English vocabulary to better express yourself and have the confidence to participate in meetings and write professional business emails in English.          

Then one day, your presentation skills will benefit your job performance and accelerate your career progression. You can finally pass on your passion and help people remember your messages and act on them, and what’s more, you will be able to better support your family and let your personality shine on stage. You will rock at your job and secure future career opportunities and become the person you are proud of.

English for Motivated Professionals is a 10 Week program and you can create a flexible schedule. Usually, 1 hour per week works best for most people who are working full-time.
