Business English Simulation: Developing and Considering Proposals
This one-day problem-solving workshop is a short but intensive educational experience designed so participants can gain real hands-on skills in a workplace setting using English as the tool of communication. In a world where companies everywhere are becoming more and more multinational to increase revenue, this interactive and experiential workshop will prove valuable. During this workshop you will be a member of one of the teams working independently to come up with a proposal or solution to a workplace 'challenge'. In doing so, participants will need to listen, hold discussions, write up a proposal and present it verbally, negotiate, make team decisions, give feedback, challenge another team's proposal, and support decisions made - all in English. This workshop would help any professionals that need to interact with English speaking colleagues in developing or reviewing proposals for new projects or services.
