Smoother communication across language and culture
Realistically it’s not possible for most companies to employ people that speak the various languages of all their international clients and luckily for some of us, English is internationally accepted as the global language for business.
Your international clients and business partners have learned or are learning English to make doing business with you easier; as a native English speaker, what can you do to help make communication with them smoother?
International Business Communication training provides key skills to native English speakers to help them better communicate with international business partners and clients in English.
As native speakers we can do so much more to make international business communication more effective.
Why do you need it?
Native English speakers sometimes speak LOUDER or sloowweerrrr when speaking to non-native English speakers. The truth is, this rarely helps – in fact, in some cases it can be unintentionally offensive or condescending. Not good, especially when you’re trying to build relationships with business partners or close that deal!

A changing world – a change in international business communication
In international business, English native speakers often find themselves at trade fairs, in meetings, in conference calls or at client visits where they may be outnumbered by non-native English speakers.
Generally non-native English speakers can communicate extremely well with each other even if they come from a number of different countries – they all understand the difficulties they share – thinking in one language and speaking in another, searching for words and phrases to best describe what they want to say, the need to simplify their vocabulary while striving to be clearly understood.
It is often only when there is a native English speaker also present in the group that challenges arise.
Why is this?
When communicating with clients and business partners who are learning English, native English speakers often lack the skills to speak in a simple yet professional style that provides clarity and prevents confusion. If they’ve never studied a foreign language themselves, they may also lack an understanding of the problems non-native English speakers struggle with.
