Build trust and business relationships more quickly
From our track-record of over 30 years in the field of international communication, we have created solutions to the problems that business and professional clients experience, both British and international.
We selected the 7 most essential solutions for successful international communication, and we focus our expertise here, to help you our clients:

Because being successful in your business relationships, operations and results with foreign partners will ultimately depend on how successfully you communicate with them.
To get on well with a foreign business partner involves:
- how you use English
- how insightful you are in cultural awareness
- how you deal with personality clashes, natural liking or antipathy
- how well you deal with unexpected barriers.
We give you insights to make antipathy less likely. You learn to “click” faster. You learn to adapt your natural style while keeping your identity.
International communication: a web of skills
International communication is a complex web of:
- Cultural understanding
- Communication skills
It’s like any communication, but more complex because of the cultural and linguistic differences involved, often unnoticed until things go wrong. We recommend you develop International Business Communication skills starting with our Global Linguistics training.
Could this be you?
The Norwegian team were talking to their new business partners in Brazil. It didn’t seem to be going anywhere. Sure, the mood was friendly, there had been a great meal and good conversation. But what did the Brazilians think of the Norwegians? And vice versa. Was the dissatisfaction with timescales really understood? How accurately did the interpreter translate what they really wanted to say?
Reactions to cultural difference and linguistic problems can be instant and deeply felt, slowing or ultimately destroying the business relationship and the project.
Our deep understanding of business communication is the result of over 30 years working in the field of communication and linguistics with British and international clients abroad and in the UK. It is this expertise that we share with client businesses and ambitious leaders, enabling them to maximise their international success and results:
- through building effective relationships
- adapting to other cultures and preferences
- skilful use of global linguistic skills.
