“Improve your business English and professional communication.”

Business English

Participants will improve practical English language skills and examine the broader context of communication. They will improve their writing and speaking in English, gain insights into communicating with empathy and customer orientation, and learn about cross-cultural and interpersonal communication patterns.

The content is adapted to company specific communication processes and themes. The training is aimed at practical application and participants are encouraged to bring in their own emails, work materials and cases.

Individual Coaching

Amie de Jeu offers coaching to improve personal and professional communication, build confidence in using the English language and work on your own goals.

Private sessions can be organized at your office, home or another convenient office or meeting place. The full attention of an experienced coach can provide an excellent opportunity to concentrate exclusively on your own objectives.

Examples of private coaching include: Specific requests (e.g. job tasks, presentations, interviews); Train the trainer; Executive level coaching; Expat coaching; Communication coaching, and Sparring partner.

“Practical training and coaching focused on your individual needs. An efficient way to address your own themes and develop your communication skills.”

“An ‘In-House’ arrangement establishes an ongoing relationship and offers many benefits.”

In-House Trainer

Regular schedules are set up (e.g. the trainer visits the company for a full day twice a month all year) and many group and individual training and coaching sessions can be accommodated.

This offers many advantages. Not only does the company have a reliable English language and communication specialist on hand to facilitate training and coaching for all (or many) of their employees, it also affords the trainer the opportunity to get to know the company and the business which helps customize the training and materials. This arrangement also provides an opportunity to work together with the managers and directors to integrate the corporate values, the company’s employee development vision, and gives insight into the organization’s communication processes.

Additionally, special training programs can easily be arranged, standard departmental emails can be periodically reviewed and revised, personnel can be given coaching sessions when communication issues arise, there is a threat of burn-out, or when adjusting to a promotion or transition, and the trainer is on call for questions or editing of written materials and translations.
