Professional Development Workshops

. Here at BCN english we like to do things differently and it's the same when it comes to professional workshops In small groups, we focus on videos from the most respected and influential speakers on a variety of subjects from 'making an elevator pitch' to 'chairing an international meeting' with and critically evaluate it with the idea of coming away with practical language technique and solutions that are relevant to your professional life. 

Our next workshop will be on "Effective Communication" in February.
