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 being comfortable with them, are two different things, and sometimes a guide comes in handy, especially when you're playing on a new level.

Krause English is your language sherpa, 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?

Krause English clients run companies like:

Who hires Krause English 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.

Suggested action items list

You could be overwhelmed by the 30 things crying out at you. Or you could let a professional point out the few things that will get you the most benefit with the least effort. Which one do you think would be easier?

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. The call is recorded (don't worry, it's just for your and my eyes only), so I can send you time-stamped, sentence-by-sentence feedback.

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, I 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. I 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!

Individualized presentation coaching

We upgrade the words and visual imagery you'll be using to make your case.

This is another excellent way to prepare for your upcoming meetings with the board or important clients!

Speech and article writing

In your role as a leader in your industry, people probably seek out your opinions on a regular basis.

I 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, I 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!

Add additional accounts

Busy? Unpredictable schedule? I get it. Most of my clients are in that situation. The solution? Put multiple people on the account. Instead of just one, we do two, or three.

Instead of a session every week, one person does one week, the other people do the other weeks. If one person gets especially busy, the other people can step in and grab the extra sessions.

In between the sessions, everyone benefits from the other stuff. The speaking prompts and feedback? Everyone gets them. The speechwriting and presentation training? Everyone gets them.

This is a great way to leverage the service across your team or deeper into the organization.
