PREFACE

Many professionals begin to study Business English early in their careers, but fail to acquire the knowledge and master the skills necessary to succeed in a global economy. Given English is the language of international business, professionals across the world who do not use English are at a great disadvantage. That is why I wrote How to Be a Business English Ace!

The inability to demonstrate competence in Business English could mean the difference between a demotion and a promotion in a company. Survival beyond thriving in the interdependent global business arena depends on using English as the common language to win customers, grow profits, and of course, advance your professional career.

Knowledge of Business English alone is not sufficient to excel at your job. The ability to communicate effectively, think critically, solve problems, find and analyze information, and ask challenging questions in English make individuals more employable in many specialty areas in the global economy.

Consider this book a primer for professionals who accept the challenge to boost their knowledge and skills of Business English rapidly in a very short time period. It is a call to action for those of you are struggling to perfect your Business English language skills in order to take them to the next level.

Good luck,

Professor H. E. Colby

INTRODUCTION: THE BUSINESS ENGLISH ACE CONCEPT

Business English Ace is a concept based on two premises: (1) the state of the person with the Business English knowledge and skills to excel in their assigned or desired task on the world stage; (2) the state of mind of this person who is capable of communicating ideas and conveying complex thoughts in a confident and secure manner in near effortless English. The union of these two facets is born out of a preparation undergone by learners of Business English who exhibit the determination and grit to achieve their professional goals and personal dreams.
