Say It With Confidence Level 1

Speak Eng­lish With­out Fear (2 days)

Most non-native Eng­lish speak­ing staff admit that they avoid speak­ing Eng­lish at work. As a result, their com­pany suf­fers the most. Com­pa­nies lose sales, miss oppor­tu­ni­ties, waste time and money, and harm their rep­u­ta­tion because of staff with poor con­fi­dence and fear of speak­ing English.
