WORKSHOP

At waabec, we are aware that students at multi-national companies have international exposure, work in cross-functional teams and are required to have a range of business skills applicable to the contemporary business world.

Workshops are designed for students who would like to develop business skills in tandem with their English language skills; this killing of two birds with one stone enables students to improve both areas simultaneously, in a context directly taken from the corporate meeting room. The workshops focus on the soft skills, key vocabulary and coaching of effective communication in different aspects of the international business environment.
