A unique communication skills programme for international business professionals.Increasingly successful international careers depend on the ability to successfully navigate both organisational and national cultural differences, as well as communicating clearly in English.
Abbey Communication has built a reputation for high-quality English language training for professionals over the last 20 years. During that time we’ve undertaken our own research with clients and discovered that their success in international settings depends on more than the English language skill alone.So we have now developed a practical and engaging approach to continuous professional development in international settings, helping international executives add more value to their communication skills.
The Certificate in International Communication combines a face-to-face workshop with other international colleagues with a period of action learning (independent guided study and implementation period). The learning can be accredited at postgraduate level with our partner the IMCA (International Management Centres Association). The IMCA is a truly international organisation, which offers qualifications to Masters and Doctorate level through its partners around the world.
This two-day workshop will take place in the beautiful town of Malmesbury, in the Cotswolds, UK. It can be followed by an additional ten-month study period to achieve a Postgraduate Certificate.
The two-day workshop will cover topics such as:
- Intercultural communication skills
- Virtual communication
- Multi-cultural teams
- Personality type and cultural profiling
- Corporate cultures
- The Inside-Out Model of International Communication
- Critical Incident Analysis
- Functioning across cultures
- Plain English for international executives
Following the two-day workshop, if you wish to complete the full postgraduate certificate you will complete three action learning projects, carried out in your workplace and supervised virtually by IMCA and Abbey Communication faculty. This period of action learning takes approximately 10 months to complete.
Those participants completing the postgraduate qualification will benefit from a formal graduation in Oxford, UK, the following September.
