ProActive English has delivered training at many companies, onsite or online, for thousands of professionals in a variety of positions – where responsibilities require clear, succinct, authentic and strategic communication in English in familiar business situations.  These include: remote and live meetings with internal and external clients, presentations for small and large groups, producing written documents for e-mail, strategic or product summaries, performance reviews or technical writing.

We address these situations by focusing on common communication situations including: sharing basic and complex information, asking and answering questions, describing and comparing products, process and choices, making decisions and reflecting on experience. The most frequent outcome of our training is increasingly confident communicators who find their voice and engage. 

Recognizing Differences Among Speakers from Different Cultures and Languages

ProActive English training recognizes that the language and communication learning experience differs based on participants’ first languages and their experience with business culture. With many companies employing multilingual, multicultural global teams, these differences present familiar and often significant challenges – and great opportunities for broader understanding, team-building and creative problem-solving.
