Advanced Business English


Advanced Business English

Communication is everything in business. The degree to which an organisation can competently communicate both internally and externally has far-reaching and long-lasting effects on their success.

If you’ve ever left a meeting unsure of what exactly had been achieved, then you’ll be acutely aware of the detrimental impact of failed communication. It determines the clarity with which ideas can be developed, the speed with which procedures can be disseminated, the strength of relationships, and the value of leadership.
