Presentation for Non-native English Speakers

There are over 27 million foreign born workers in the US workforce as of 2020, according to Pew Research. While diversity in organizations can make for a more exciting culture and even contribute to higher-than-average profits, it can be difficult for foreign born professionals to speak up at meetings, be their best when presenting, or pursue opportunities that they would have otherwise. Most corporate training curricula don't address these challenges.

The added layer of challenge

Presenting can be hard enough in anyone's native language. When working with a 2nd language, questions arise about word-crafting, pronunciation, cadence and more. This can waste time, affect a speaker's confidence and cause distraction from the important work of delivering their message in a clear, powerful way. 

That's where we come in.
Working with non-native English speakers on their most pressing concerns:
  • sentence structure
  • grammar
  • pronunciation
  • cadence
  • delivery technique
  • cultural best practices
  • confidence

Delivered in a highly inclusive, respectful environment, so speakers feel more confident, prepared and able to focus on what they do best.

Research shows that forcing leaders and other
employees to admit bias and change behavior can
lead to resentment and rebellion, producing the
opposite of intended results.
For real inclusivity, individuals must experience genuine insight and self-motivated change. This happens best through effective communication in the moment.
Responding to Microaggressions gives teams the
right tools for this to happen.
Traditional bias trainings focus on explaining bias and its cost, hoping it will go away. But RTM has a more realistic and practical approach.
