Masterclass description

Are you a senior business manager working in a large international organisation? Do you need to communicate and negotiate with international clients or partners in English? Do you lead an international team using English as the language of business?

Attend the British Council’s Business English Masterclass to update your English language skills and knowledge to communicate effectively ensuring business success.

The masterclass is for senior professionals who already have experience using English in the business context and who are interested in refreshing their English language skills.

The one hour class will focus on enhancing your language skills when negotiating in English. It will help business leads gain tips and phrases to influence important clients or partners in negotiations and interpret typical native-speaker language used to express desired outcomes. Common mistakes that Dutch professionals make in situations of negotiations will also be tackled.

Gain your competitive advantage by boosting your confidence in negotiating in English and convert your language skills into a business asset.
