About Us

ABOUT US

Mike Ward English Coach aims to identify the uncertainties that you may experience when faced with performing a business task in English.

Perhaps it is a presentation, a negotiation or participation in an important meeting with an international customer.

THE APPROACH

 

Mike says: "Having worked with training and coaching professional business English since 1979, I have discovered that many of the problems speakers experience are in their own minds...

 

"Confidence comes from having the right knowledge to hand when you need it and the comfort you get when you know you'll find it there and then.

 

Attitude is everything. Give yourself a chance. Do not expect perfection when starting up again after a long break. You're speaking a foreign language, remember! Let me help you first to identify and focus on the difficulties you may be experiencing. Let's get to the bottom of them.

 

Do you find it frustrating when the word or phrase you want at the critical moment just isn't there for you?

Do you sometimes stumble when you feel your response really didn't come out right?

Does your heart sink when you know you're going to struggle with that vitally important email to your customer in Vancouver or a LinkedIn post about your new service or range?

 

I can coach you to handle all these situations with ease and confidence. And if you're looking for fast results, I can help there as well."
