What we're about

We run Business English workshops as interactive training webinars. These seminars cover all business areas such as Finance, Insurance, Presentations, International Business, Information Technology, Law, Medicine.

Technical and management professionals need to express themselves accurately and to understand the most up-to-date vocabulary. These workshops are a great opportunity to correct some common mistakes and improve your confidence with professional English.

The presenter, Sean Roe, worked in international reinsurance, medical underwriting and risk selection for ten years in London and Paris before spending five years as Director of Operations of an insurance company in France. Since 2007 he has been drawing on this background – and his own experience of learning French and German in-company – to write and deliver face-to-face courses for individuals and groups as well as on-line training content. Having studied economics at university, he has since achieved a WSET Level 3 qualification, a professional business English training certificate from Trinity College London, and worked as an English language trainer in large corporations and universities.

You can sign in from anywhere and there is no software download required. I will send the Zoom link prior to the Webinar.

During the lesson you will be able to work together in small groups to complete some exercises.

We will open the chat facility for questions, all of which can be saved locally by each student at the end of the lesson.

I look forward to our next virtual classroom!

Regards, Sean
Reviews:

“I liked the concept of Sean organizing a webinar on business English topics beginning with basics on numbers. Despite us knowing dates and times or large numbers, there are still plenty of common mistakes non-natives make and can fix participating in those webinars. It’s been a pleasure, Sean and Monica, thanks a million!” – Manol.

"As a tech executive who has lived and worked in an English speaking environment since 2008, I had a first world problem finding a proper program to further polish my English skills till I met Sean. What impressed me is not only the originality of his course material, but also how spot on each unit was designed to bridge the gap between an advanced ESL speaker and a native speaker. Sean's extensive knowledge across business, sports and cultural topics also makes his sessions such a joy to be a part of. I'd recommend Sean to any advanced learner without reservation." Homer Dong.
