- Weekly explanation of a phrase in a business periodical like the Financial Times
The increasing globalization of business means being able to present yourself well in English is a vital skill.
And after you get to a certain level, further professional growth depends largely on your ability to fluently and easily communicate with others.
You know those things already. After all, you wouldn't have gotten to where you are if you didn't.
But knowing them, and adjusting to them, are two different things, and sometimes a guide comes in handy, especially when you're playing on a new level.
We're here to help you with the words and presentation skills you’ll need to connect with the people you need.
After all, you know you have the merit, shouldn't others?
The default answer is no.
Solid financials are just table stakes.
So what is it then?
Our clients run companies like:
Who hires us and why:
- A CEO who wants to be more confident when building relationships with clients abroad.
- A board member who wants to raise the company's profile with analysts at a foreign bank.
- A CFO who wants to perform better on quarterly conference calls and in meetings with investors.
Keep in mind, these are not "English classes," and we are not "language teachers." If you are a beginning or intermediate student who is still struggling to put a sentence together, we are not for you. However, if you are already an advanced speaker who needs to communicate better with your foreign investors and clients, you're in the right place.

Personalized roadmap and time estimates
Keep track of your progress and know about when you'll be reaching your language and presentation goals.
Weekly one-hour class
Once a week, we meet online for a one-on-one class. We work on whatever you in particular need -- speaking practice, vocabulary practice, presentation practice.
By the way, this is a great time to work on the presentations you make to your clients, or to practice for the big upcoming speech or trade association meeting!
Daily speaking prompt
Language is a habit, something you don't think about, something you just use. How do you think native speakers sound so fluent? It's simply because they use it every day.
And you don't need to use it a lot to form that habit. Three to five minutes a day is usually enough.
So each day, we send you a short voice prompt, usually in the form of a simple question.
Then you hit reply, speak into your computer or phone for a few minutes, and click send. We receive it, get back to you with suggestions, and then do it again the next day. After all, it's a habit we're forming!
Speech and article writing
In your role as a leader in your industry, people probably seek out your opinions on a regular basis.
We take your ideas, clean up the words a bit, and put them down on paper in a way that sounds like you, but just a little bit better -- smoother, more fluent.
Sometimes known as "ghostwriting" or "shadow writing" -- the ideas are yours, we just clean them up a bit, and then go hide in the shadows while you give the speech or your article spreads around the world!
