About our company
Originally from South Africa, we moved to Germany in 2019. Besides degrees in Building Science and Theology I also obtained a TEFL (Teaching English) Level 5 certificate from the TEFL Academy.

Realising that improved business English skills can make a real impact on promotion chances and thereby on real income as well as company profits, I started this course with the unique purpose to help those wanting to increase their living standards and happiness in the global community.

Stress & Anxiety
Very often, when someone is required to communicate in a language that is not their mother tongue, they are stressed and unsure of themselves. This course is specifically designed to give you the tools to make it easier to talk or write, to actually hear or read the true message of the communicator. It put you at ease and help you connecting with your customer, partner or employee in a relaxed and trustful atmosphere.
Speaking up in meetings, or other business situations, can sometimes cause a paralysing fear of being judged or humiliated by others, leaving one feeling ashamed and alone.
Often, others would look at people who exhibit stress and anxiety in communication to be less trustworthy, less competent, less socially and physically attractive, tenser, less composed and less dominant than their more fluent and confident counterparts.
Negative emotions include embarrassment, performance anxiety, guilt, distress and anxiety in general. Perceptions such as lack of performance, loosing face and identity conflicts can surface with sometimes debilitating effect.
As you know, relationships are not only important when trying to land a new job or to sign that profitable deal, but they also have a great influence on our happiness and enthusiasm in the workplace.
In our course that is one of the threads weaving parts of the course together - from "Tell me about yourself" to "Clinching the deal". We don't teach you much grammar, but rather provide you with the right words and phrases and show you where and when to use it in everyday business situations and activities.
These activities include i.e. meetings, e-mails, reports or how to keep conversations going.
Although the course would be extremely useful for native English speakers to help them in the business world, the course is really designed for business people where the first language is not English.
Reap Financial Benefits
“English is the principal language of international collaboration, and as in previous editions of the report, we found correlations between English and various measures of investment in R&D. This finding resonates with recent research showing that companies with managers from many countries earn more revenue from innovation than their less diverse competitors. English-speaking. teams are able to attract more diverse talent and access ideas from around the world. They are also more likely to collaborate internationally within their own organizations.” - EF English Proficiency Index
Growing your company represents a major corporate strategic goal and one way to achieve it is acquisitions. Research has shown that there is a direct relationship between Chief Executives’ cognitive complexity and the number (as well as the size) of acquisitions and thus growth.

It may be an incentive for people who want to move up to the next level in their careers to improve their business English.
