3. Business English Communication for Entrepreneurs: Become a pro at business lunches.

Business lunches are important for growing your business.

But this is a situation where you’ll mix business communication with small talk.

So business lunches can feel confusing.

How much time should you spend on small talk? And when do you start talking about business?

Let me help you with that with your lesson on business lunches in English for entrepreneurs.


4. Business English Communication for Entrepreneurs: Motivate your team with praise.

As a business owner, having a motivated team can be the difference between failure and success!

And, there can be really big differences between what you might be used to in your own business culture and in an English-speaking business culture. Or an international culture. Believe me—I’ve seen this watching how people do business in the US…and France.

So how do you motivate your English-speaking or international team? And what should you say?

Let me help you with expressions for keeping your team motivated in English and smart cultural practices just for you.
