English and International Communication Skills – Core24
Professionals working internationally need a range of skills to be highly successful; they need the skills to build trusting relationships and powerful networks, to influence and take effective decisions, and to manage conflicts and create powerful teams – and all this in English.
Transporeon is developing a new programme of added-value communication workshops in English to develop the people skills we need to collaborate highly effectively across borders. Employees, ideally with at least a B1+ level of English, will be able to explore key international collaboration skills in English. The sessions will include not only skills training but feedback on participants’ language skills such as vocabulary and grammar.
We are running two pilots in Q2 to test this concept. Each workshop consists of a 90-minute input session to develop insights into the skills and to practise, followed by a second 90-minnute workshop in which participants explore how apply the skills to a real situation in their own role. These pilot workshops belong to a a series of 24 seminars that focus on enhancing the essential soft skills that you need for professional success called Core24, which we are bringing to you together with our partners, York Associates.
Pilot workshop 1 – Increase your influence at work
This workshop explores the influencing strategies you need to impact your relationships and to drive results. Presenting both research and real case studies, participants will be able to expand their own range of influencing tools, and apply them to a person and actual case study of their own.

Pilot workshop 2 – How to build and international network
This workshop explores the purpose and process of building a powerful relationship network in professional life, particularly the skills needed to engage people to be part of your network. Participants will be asked to visualise their current professional network (using a mapping tool) and to explore ways to both strength existing relationships and to develop new network nodes to bring value for their current and future roles.
