I work as a director of research in investments and wealth management. I originally contacted Kevin because I wanted to improve my public speaking and presentations, as well as become more confident in building rapport with clients in casual communication. These were two of the things I perceived to be instrumental in getting me to get to the next level. After six months of meeting twice a week, Kevin helped me achieve both. Along the way, he also helped me develop skills in organizing my messages and customizing them for specific audiences. In addition, I upgraded my active English vocabulary and usage. Without reservation, I recommend Kevin to anyone who seriously desires to get to the next level.
Professional English Communication
Personalized Business English coaching customized for your needs
Communication is key
Have you noticed it’s all about communication in business? The old joke is that every position is a sales position. You always have to persuade someone. And in the US, it’s not just what you say, it’s how you say it. How confident you sound. It’s showing your expertise and conviction. Your brainstorming skills. How well you empathize and tell stories.
Great professional English communication is the key to success in every role.
Through my sessions, you will learn how to leverage critical business communication skills to enhance your performance and impact.
(And improve your confidence along the way!)
In my sessions, select from the following:
- Pronunciation and intonation
- Contribution in meetings, brainstorms, and critiques
- Presentation skills (audience engagement, organization, pacing, & storytelling)
- Clarification and deeper explanations
- Managing client and colleague expectations and communication
Note: sessions are customized to fit your specific needs. Your role. Your team. Your industry.
Language + Culture
For too many international professionals, it’s not easy to find the right resource for business English. English apps and Youtube videos don’t provide the powerful business English you need to get ahead in your field.
And they don’t provide the cultural insights you need to really excel here.
The good news is I have spent the past 15 years refining and curating the English skills you’ll actually use. Professional English communication techniques designed for you, your industry, and your team. And with the added cultural dimension that comes from years of working with international pros. So you can move towards that future you’ve dreamed of.
Whether it’s speaking up more, presenting your ideas, improving pronunciation, or contributing actively, I will help you show your value and feel more confident.
