Inclusion in a Global Workforce: Do You Speak The Language?
Friday, November 3, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Presenter: Micah Bellieu
Learn how to better communicate with foreign-born employees (or anyone, really!). Micah from Fluency Corp will share a detailed customized plan of specific techniques to promote clear communication (the first time) and to eliminate wasting time. She will provide learners with the tools to immediately apply their knowledge.
At the end of the session, the participants should be able to:
• Apply simple, core mechanisms for communication with 2nd language employees (or anyone, really!)
• Understand what it feels like to communicate as a foreign-born employee
• Know how to support effective communication
• Tackle communication issues with skill
Micah Bellieu and her team have been creating language programs for Global Fortune 500 companies since 2008. After studying English, Spanish, French and Japanese at Boston University, she decided to open Fluency Corp for language training which is accessible throughout the world. She has thrown language learning on its head with The Bellieu Method, which focuses on relevant, interesting conversation and task-based lessons - like real life. With a talented team of dynamic instructors and creative, conversation-focused curriculum writers, Fluency Corp has been training international teams from Spain, Russia, Germany, China, Japan, Korea and more - working with employees at Google, Samsung, Hitachi, Kayak, Mary Kay, 7-11, Ferrovial and many others. She loves learning new languages and traveling the world - learning something new every day is her goal.
