Top 3 Tips in Business English by Sudakshina Bhattacharjee in blue background and white font.

The way we communicate in the world of work today is continually evolving what with web technologies coming up with increasingly convenient ways for us to communicate and collaborate with colleagues, stakeholders and customers in-house, nationally and abroad.

I was recently approached by an old friend to make a video about what I think would be good tips on the subject of Business English for her to host in her Facebook group for working Indian ladies. With a little spare time recently, I said “Sure, why not?”

I then went about scripting, shooting and editing this video which I think anyone — from entry level graduates, to those climbing up, to seasoned professionals — based anywhere in the world could make use of.

Without further ado, may I present to you My Top 3 Tips in Business English:

Tip 1: Getting to the Point Quickly and Clearly

Tip 2: Starting and Ending Emails Appropriately

Tip 3: Being Culturally Intelligent

You might want to sit with a (physical or digital) notepad open, as this (38 minutes long) video is based on my insights from my experience working in the corporate and academic sectors and, for those of you who know me, I won’t bore you, I promise! :)

I look forward to any comments/queries that you may have and feel free to share this with anyone who you think needs it.

There’s plenty more tips and exercises to improve and globalise the way you communicate at work in this book penned by noted Business English expert and myself: Improve Your Global Business English: The Essential Toolkit for Writing and Communicating across Borders (Kogan Page, 2012).

Enjoy! :)
