Sure, it's important to prepare for the "big" meeting - but what about all the chatter that happens in between? Did you know most business deals occur outside the meeting rooms? In this class, we will practice different role play scenarios for every small talk topic of conversation.
I apply my theatrical training to create fun, exciting, and realistic role-play scenarios to help you practice your skills.

ABOUT THE TEACHER
Hello! My name is Stephanie, and I was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. I hold a bachelor's degree in communication (University of Ottawa) and a master's degree in international affairs (Carleton), and have been working as an English business language / communications coach for over three years. What I love most about teaching is the diversity of subjects and industries I am exposed to. For example, one of my clients works at Hershey's, in Quality Assurance; another one of my clients is a psychologist; a third is an advertising executive. As such, I feel I learn as much from my clients as they do from me. I am also a professional actress, with acting experience in Ottawa, New York City, Montreal and Los Angeles. Whatever your interests or learning goals, I'm sure we can find an inspiring way to make learning fun and get you the results you need. See you in class!
