The trick to feeling more confident actually ‘speaking’ in English, is (not surprisingly) to practice. So if you are stuck for ideas this provides you with some speaking prompts.
You can use this tool to practice on your own or with a friend or colleague but the learning impact will be much greater if you actually speak out loud. It is only when we actually here ourselves that we realise
“Ahhh! I don’t really know how to say that.”
“That doesn’t sound right.”
That is when you notice where the gaps are in your vocabulary, but also your pronunciation and grammar.
There will be four of these a year so you can come back any time and play, on your own or with a friend or colleague, you can do it in person or online.

Working with me will get you speaking English more fluently, with a lot more impact – faster!
If you have tried Business English apps or courses but don’t make any real progress, then you would probably benefit from a more personal approach. What you need is a technique which is inspiring enough to motivate you. This pure focus on the communication you need to be seen and recognised in your career is very motivational. My ability to find the fine line between holding you accountable and being flexible is what makes coaching with me so rewarding and worthwhile. Your results will pave the way to more confidence.
Most of my work is communication coaching not pure Business English. Why? Because having perfect English does not mean that you will become a great communicator in English.
It is more honest for me to offer you communication coaching in English with ‘Business English benefits’ than limiting your performance. These communication skills and techniques are transferable to any language or industry.
I only ever take 6 VIPs at a time because I am very dedicated to my VIPs with a really individual and personal service.
I take you under my wing and give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to take your career to the next level.
100% confidential, flexible and relevant to your career goals.
My focus is on you.
No compromise. No boring topics. No need to doubt or guess.
If you want to find out whether my unconventional approach is a good fit for you and whether you even find me approachable and knowledgeable I recommend you to sign up for your “English Speaking Expert Action Plan Call”.
