In her article titled “Global Business Speaks English” and published in Harvard Business Review, May 2012 issue, Pr. Tsedal Neeley of Harvard argues that English is now the global language of business. She cited that more and more multinational companies are mandating English as the common corporate language—Airbus, Daimler-Chrysler, Fast Retailing, Nokia, Renault, Samsung, SAP, Technicolor, and Microsoft in Beijing, to name a few—in an attempt to facilitate communication and performance across geographically diverse functions and business endeavors.
English, she continues, is spoken at a useful level by some 1.75 billion people worldwide—that’s one in every four of us.
We in International Agency For Negotiations fully agree with that argument. When doing business, making strategic decisions, solving problems or reaching settlements, in general, when doing any kind of negotiations across national boundaries, your assigned representatives for that job should present coherent, coincident and consistent dialogue for efficient communication with the other side/s. Especially when negotiations are complicated and nuances may make big differences. Not only that, but even on simplest levels, like email exchange, phone calls, and guests receiving, English shows how professional your company is, and makes it much easier to prepare for negotiations, and smoothly flow the process.
We in International Agency For Negotiations provide special English courses provided and designed around the negotiation process and sales/procurements activities. The trainee will not only professionally and practically learn how to speak, wright, read and understand English language, but will also acquire all required terminology needed to negotiate any deals or settle any disputes.
A special commercial correspondence techniques for professionals will be inherited in the same English courses we provide. This will be built around the approach of Oxford, and levels of trainees will be highly considered.
