Why MLC

For over 40 years, MLC has worked with international professionals to help them improve their communication, presentation, and writing skills. During this time, we have built strong and effective training programs that allow professionals to:

  • Communicate naturally with colleagues across functional areas
  • Give effective presentations to both internal and external stakeholders
  • Speak confidently with clients and teammates
  • Improve stress, intonation, and pronunciation

Our Directors will meet with you and your team to discuss and assess your training needs, and to craft a program of study specific to your organization. Contact us to begin this process today.

FOR INDIVIDUALS OR SMALL GROUPS
Private Coaching

Our training can also be customized for individuals or small groups. We have worked privately with executives, managers, and technical employees to support specific communication and leadership needs such as: leading a meeting, giving presentations, engaging staff informally, and understanding local culture.

These private coaching sessions often meet once or twice a week and can be held online or in-person, depending on location of the employee. Periodic check-in calls with HR or managers will be provided to ensure goals are met.
