“You will not only find articles on financial English or legal English: topics are also discussed subvich as using improvisation to improve real business performance, using mobile technology to learn better, impression management or new ways to improve interpersonal skills for the workspace, and the language of female (corporate) leadership.”
Roy: “The sheer diversity of what is on offer in PCS reflects how quickly the world of Business English is developing in our connected world of the 21st century. Just a quick browse will allow you to judge what our benchmark is as Business English professionals and how we seek to educate and develop our clients in different parts of the world.”
“The challenges were considerable: nothing like this had ever been done before within the field of Business English and even though we were experienced editors, we were new to the world of digital publishing. The incredible thing, looking back on this, is that our team have never been together in one room. Everything was created through long Skype sessions, Google drive and Dropbox. Sounds like a real global business, right?”
