Do you ever find yourself in meetings where you have to share your findings with your team and give recommendations based on those findings? Maybe you have to report personal observations, express doubt, avoid commitment or convince your colleagues.

About this course

We often find ourselves in meetings where we have to give recommendations and report back information or research. These situations often involve convincing people of an idea, avoiding commitment and defending your ideas. This can be tough if you don’t have at hand the best key expressions to help you speak fluently and confidently.

During this course, you’ll practise your listening skills by listening to a real meeting between colleagues. You’ll then study the language used and you’ll practise using this language yourself.

You’ll have the chance to review a Harvard Business case study where you have to reach a decision and report back on your findings.
