We help individuals from diverse backgrounds explain with confidence who they are, what they do and what they need in order to be successful as part of a team.

We help multicultural teams build trust by finding common language and increased understanding to solve real problems and reach creative solutions, supporting team success in a diverse and dynamic professional universe.

All ProActive English training includes remote training options – face-to-face, online - onsite group or one-on-one training.

Case Study:

An ongoing client for corporate language training employs industry experts who have struggled to be understood by their global team and struggled to produce good writing quickly.  These experts were also receiving disappointing scores on well-crafted presentations before large groups.

ProActive English training addressed common pronunciation issues, strategies for presenting more effectively and individual coaching.  In presentations following training, analysts’ scores from audiences have increased markedly as they produced clearer speech, organized ideas more succinctly and built confidence.   Course participants also reduced the time required to produce two to twenty-page documents.  This also meant a reduction in the time required for managers and editors to review the writing.

UCLA Extension’s American Language Center works closely with ProActive English to deliver onsite pronunciation training at a biotech company, with The Business English Web as the Web-based component in a blended learning model. Program participants have had a very positive experience with the Web tool. ProActive English’s professional and supportive approach has helped participants achieve qualitative outcomes and helped UCLA-ALC generate repeat business with the client.
