Effective communication means work gets done more quickly and efficiently!

As corporations and organizations expand globally, as virtual workspace becomes a local practice, as workforces become more diverse and inclusive, communication breakdowns are more likely to occur more frequently.  For teams and organizations of all sizes, miscommunication (including non-native English speakers hesitant to speak up) can lead to costly misunderstandings, confusion and delays.

ProActive English specializes in helping non-native English speakers working in corporations and organizations become more proficient, engaged and confident in spoken and written communication. We work with individuals and teams across a wide range of industries, from tech to healthcare, from manufacturing to customer service.
