Professional Meetings in English
20.02.2013 - 21.02.2013
Planning and conducting meetings in English is not just translating German meetings. From the calling of the meeting to the creation of an agenda and conducting the actual meeting, the way meetings are conducted in English differs from the way German meetings are held. Being polite in English is key to being successful in international meetings and sometimes non-native speakers are either too direct or use words that offend others, without ever having this intention. In this two-day intensive course, we will train the proper way to agree, disagree, make up an agenda, call a meeting and discuss controversial issues in English in a polite and effective manner to achieve a win-win situation with international partners.
