As a business professional, communicating with others and getting across your ideas is essential.
At a practical level, your path to promotion may depend on how well you can: 
          •    present new ideas to your manager or at headquarters;
          •    describe how your product can meet the needs of your customers;
          •    solve complex problems quickly with partners or suppliers.
In essence, your ability to craft and convey clear and concise messages will reveal your level of expertise and professionalism to people you work with.
Vectis has designed this new workshop specifically for professionals working with foreign managers, or those communicating with colleagues at headquarters, overseas partners or clients. 
What’s unique about this workshop:
Vectis uses a targeted training approach not found in other organizations that are primarily geared towards language skills. This is because we realize that difficulties Korean professionals face are often not related to English proficiency.
In this workshop, participants gain practical tips to identify their point, strengthen it and deliver it 

          •    Briefly – to say it in fewer words
          •    Clearly – to get their point across easily
          •    Logically – to explain their position well.

          •    Using (and avoiding) key words, expressions and formulas in English for more explicit messages.

 Module II: Getting to the Point in Written Communications 

          •    Identifying the proper overall structure and sequence of paragraphs in your written texts;
          •    Using good logical flow and continuity of ideas to enhance clarity;
