In this weekend workshop I plan to talk about where Business English has come from and where I think it is going. I shall:
1. talk about the range of skills which I think people who work internationally need, including language, communication, intercultural, interpersonal and leadership skills;
2. look at our own professional development needs by identifying the skills I think we have and the skills we may need to develop in order to provide training in these different areas;
3. introduce some activities which can work in both the professional language classroom and the management seminar.
