Using custom-made management training materials including the latest models and techniques, we can help you build your leadership toolkit in the context of the language you need to apply it to. You can add any of these modules to your portfolio:

  • Leadership

We take great pride in the work we do with our public-sector clients. Working with more than 6 State Ministries and over 8 public organisations, including the Bavarian State Parliament and Bavarian State Chancellery, we are frequently rated as "exceptional" by our clients in this arena.

We value academia and we enjoy supporting our public sector clients in the important roles they perform.  

Of course, any public administration client receives the same accelerated communication experience as with business training but where we can, we add bespoke value in the areas of:

  • Intercultural Skills and Awareness
  • EU Law
  • EU Directives, Guidelines and Implementation
  • Fact-finding Mission Preparation and Travel

workshops


 

"We have worked with executive english since 2011. For the past few years we have booked intensive workshops tailored to our unique area of spatial communications. An executive english trainer works with great empathy to create the right emotional and creative environment. They are certainly quite unique in what they do."

personalised workshops and seminars

Our executive workshops are developed individually with each client in mind.  

How we work

Our intensive seminars and workshops are often requested and booked months in advance. Increasingly, we are advising our clients to consider this learning route as an alternative to weekly training sessions. Why? Because we notice attendance goes up as more priority is placed on them. And of course because we can offer a deeper more lasting dive into the area that your world rotates around. 

When we receive a workshop request our Head of Client Engagement conducts a needs analysis and gets to the core of what the learning goals should be. They then match the perfect trainer to you. Then our Workshop Coordinator gets to work handpicking the content, communications activities and subjects that will inspire your participants to learn.  

Specially designed workshop packs with a clear flow that builds on learning and the application of that learning are then compiled.  During the session, each student's needs and requests are targeted and addressed. At the end of each session, we give our trademark feedback of vocabulary, lessons learned, and of course- praise! Each student will also receive a certificate of accomplishment. No wonder we average 1+ in all of the feedback we receive.

Seminar vs workshop

What differentiates a seminar from a workshop is predominantly the length of time. A workshop lasts up to three hours, and a seminar can be a half to a full day. Secondly, of course, we use the time carefully in both and make the learning goals realistic. Typically, our seminars are more skills based with what we call "surgery style" elements - a chance to look at the documentation and information you deal with everyday. Our our workshops build practical expertise and vocabulary around high-level application. But both blend communication with a clear learning objective.  See below for a few examples of typical sessions. But don't forget your unique wish is our command.  

Workshops:

  • Correspondence in English
  • Project Management
  • Responding to Tenders
  • Storytelling in Presentations
  • Negotiation Skills
  • Simon Sinek's "The Golden Triangle"
  • Creative Thinking
  • English for EU law

Seminars:

  • Intercultural Skills
  • Your Company's Value Proposition
  • Media Training
  • English for Marketers
  • Negotiation Skills
  • Digitalisation
  • Pitching for New Business
  • Simon Sinek's "The Golden Triangle"
  • Presentation Skills (with Filming)

english round table

Currently a very popular format amongst our clients to enhance communication and team-building simultaneously is our “English Round Table” concept.

This sees us recommending a number of topics relevant to our clients, and creating an open-platform for exchange and brainstorming in English.

Popular subjects are:

  •  “What is digitalization and how will it affect our clients/customers?”
  • "What is the future of our industry?”
  • “What are the trends in our business we can’t ignore?”
  • “How can we understand ourselves and others better?”
  • “How can we turn our services into a product?”
  • “What is the future of Europe?”

Young Learners


"Simon worked with Leo when he went through a gruelling entrance exam and a number of interviews in the UK on top.  He explained exactly what we should expect. We were so well prepared and supported. He's now having the time of his life in England."

ongoing support

Kids don't need to consciously know they're learning. Fun with English. Weekly support to make English a joy to speak. It's not just another subject on the agenda to study for. We can activate the language your child's school is teaching well. We can be there for test preparations and writing prep. "English" will be the new subject your kid eagerly pursues: "When's my next English lesson?" We're not exaggerating. And behind the scenes, under the radar of our young learners, we're keeping a strict eye on their progress. But, shhh! We don't want to blow our cover. 

executive english has successfully trained a number of younger clients for the application process to get into the universities of their choice. We have an awesome record which includes successful applications to Columbia, Harvard, Conde' Nast School of Fashion, the London School of EconomicsOxford and many more. 

boarding school preparation

executive english helps many of Munich's teenagers prepare for English and American boarding school interviews, examinations and subsequent attendance. We are pretty proud of the fact that we have a 100% admittance rate.

Our past trainees have successfully been admitted to Worth School, Greshams and Oakham, to name but a few. 

our preferred partner

Stanford & Ackel have a proven track record of pairing up the right students with the right boarding and summer schools. We trust them whole-heartedly to get the job done, and get it right!

Coaching and facilitation


"Beth facilitated a 3-day Senior Global Management event in Bali, Indonesia. One of our core values is passion. There could not have been a better fit in Beth."

yet more strings to our bow

executive english is passionate about the value of coaching. We're really good at it too. But for us, good is not good enough, so we teamed up with the greatest in order to be the best. So everything that executive english does in the area of coaching is done with its partners at Inspire and Outperform. Both in German and in English (we also offer French and Chinese). 

Your company's products and services are continuously reviewed and revised, made "better" and kept up to date. But what about the individuals in your company; your leaders, your managers, your star performers? How much do you invest in your people vs. your product?

The best way to retain your people is to engage them:

  • We run your very own employee engagement survey
  • We analyse the data and share the results and relevant benchmarks with you and your staff
  • We design and deliver targeted workshops that engage your staff
  • And coach your management teams

We also coach your individuals and teams to:

  • Discover their leadership style and outperform
  • Inspire motivation, awaken drive and coach around issues
  • Handle change during turbulent times
  • Deploy creative leadership techniques
  • We analyse and share the results and relevant benchmark data with you and your staff

And of course, we work with your expatriates as well:

  • Mentoring and coaching using cultural tools and bespoke methodology
  • Supporting expatriates to find their feet quickly on a foreign assignment
  • Ensuring that you retain this precious talent that has a lot of investment behind it
  • Helping them deploy creative leadership techniques

facilitation

And what kind of additional support is in place to ensure that you get 100% out of the high-level meetings you hold? Are you using facilitators to promote clarity, stakeholder involvement and shared problem-solving? We think you should be.

A meeting facilitator can help increase the effectiveness of your meeting, engage all participants and make sure you get the results you want. Using a facilitator promotes better communication within your group and ensures that your team will stay on time, and on task. 

Hiring an external facilitator allows all members of the group to participate, and work towards the meeting’s objective. We can help with:

  • Brainstorming Sessions
  • Strategic Off-sites
  • Marketing Strategy and Market Positioning
  • Corporate Visioning (mission/vision development)
  • Organisational Culture
  • Succession Planning 
  • Value Setting
