Joint English And Intercultural Communication Training

Language and Global Mindset Training for International Executives

Get started today

Culture is communication and communication is culture

Edward T. Hall

Working in international teams means communicating and managing multicultural employees – are you linguistically and culturally fit?

Sometimes it is said that the native speakers of English are at an advantage in international meetings as they are speaking in their mother tongue.

Do you feel that you are not quite yourself when speaking English at work and that you remain quiet because of lack of confidence? Is this your experience?

If you would like to gain confidence using English at work and brush up other important communication skills that will give you confidence in the international arena, this training is for you.

You can choose from the following modules:

  • International Presentation Skills

  • International Writing Skills

  • Running International Meetings

  • Virtual Communication Skills

  • Developing a Global Mindset/Intercultural Competence

What is the offer

Courses can be booked as a 1-1 group/team training for a full day face-to-face or online (in shorter blocks).

My training courses can be adapted to suit your organization needs.

I also recommend supporting this training with 1-1 coaching on The International Profiler, a tool for developing intercultural competences if you are working cross-culturally on a regular basis.

Globally speaking we are all connected these days, but do we all have a global mindset?

This course provides mobile professionals with the skills to thrive when working across cultures.

The course has 6 recorded modules with practical assignments and ends with a live 1-1 coaching session where we can look at any global dilemmas you may be facing at the moment.

Working in English when it’s not your first language

English is my mother tongue, and I am always amazed how many people around the world study something other than languages, build a career and work in that profession in English at the same time. I would wish that everyone could have the opportunity to carry out their...

Why does intercultural training always start with YOU?

I was recently asked why most intercultural training starts with taking a closer look at your own culture.  I could see the client just wanted to get straight down to business and learn about how to manage her team in the UK. When people seek out intercultural...

What Others Are Saying

Read my testimonials

Vanessa is a great trainer! Throughout my classes with her, I enjoyed not only business English but intercultural components of working abroad. She is very disciplined, knows where to focus and always finds the ways to motivate you!

Elif Arikan

She proved to be able to transfer her own intercultural experience and sensitivity to others in a motivating way. Participating in her lectures was highly rewarding. Without the insights gained during her lectures I might not have chosen to go for a Master’s degree in cross-cultural communication afterwards.

Dorothee Simpfendörfer

She has such in-depth knowledge about cultures and communication based on different global industries

Nikhil Rustagi

Thanks to her support, I am now constantly developing my communication skills, reaching positive outcome from any interaction with people from all around the world.

Vanessa is a great trainer who has helped me polish my interview skills in English. The lessons were varied, interesting and we had a lot of fun too. I loved the discussions about social behaviour in Austria and England.

Vanessa is not only a highly professional teacher, but also a very lovely human being.
