ExIm English, English Language Education Programs for Corporations, Business Executives, and Professionals

International agreement, doing business overseas through speaking EnglishSenior-level business executives from non-English speaking countries who conduct business internationally find that a good command of the English language is a significant advantage in this age of global finance, offshore manufacturing, multinational supply chain management, export sales of domestically-produced products, selection and management of foreign distributors, etcetera, etcetera. General directors and other chief executives such as chief operating officers, chief financial officers, as well as senior department heads involved in international strategic negotiations, sales, marketing, finance, law, and research and development find that a sound command of the English language is a major, often indispensable advantage in doing business beyond their national borders.


English has been the de facto international business and diplomatic language for the past 200 years, and despite the relatively recent formation of the EU and the ascendency of China as global economic powers, the English language, which is the native tongue or an official language for 2.5 billion people (37% of the current world population), continues to assert its place as the most established and authoritative language of international business, finance, science, and diplomacy.


In high-level international communications--whether the subject is of a commercial, technical, or political nature--an interpreter often becomes a necessity, albeit a cumbersome one. As a point of fact, interpreters are essentially "third wheels” and can easily become handicaps rather than an assets in small, often one-on-one strategic meetings and negotiations. Anyone that has been involved regularly in top level negotiation has on occasion, and much to their consternation, discovered that their interpreter instead of translating what was said in both essence and intent, had been second-guessing you or your counterparts and instead interjected their own pretentions, points, prejudices, and/or opinions, which had the potential to or may have actually resulted in costly miscommunications or misunderstandings, or worse.


Informal business negotiationsIt is often the key, one-on-one meetings—without the presence of interpreters and corporate lieutenants—that produce the meeting of minds and the handshakes that spell the eventual success or failure of a negotiation. And in the majority of major international, industry-shaking deals, the principal language used in those negotiations was English.
