Clear and effective face-to-face communication in English

"Good communication is good conversation. These days visual media, the internet and social media have changed the way people communicate, listen, evaluate and make decisions."

It has become apparent to me that more and more students as well as younger company employees and executives seem to have lost their ability to communicate effectively face-to-face. I believe this to be a direct result of the increased amount of time that younger generations are spending communicating via smartphones and tablets at home, in schools and at work. Observing this in public places and in living and dining rooms, I notice many more families sitting around the dinner table not conversing, but focused on their smart phones, tablets and laptops. Sound familiar?    

As a result, many of these company new hires are shying away from direct conversation and vocal presentations, preferring the safety of creating a few short abbreviated Twitter-like sentences or filling the space with meaningless emoji. During some of our trainings, I have observed this in our younger generation company trainees - strong eye contact seems to be an illusory lost skill.  Additionally, I have learned that teaching cursive writing skills in many grade schools is being replaced with correcting spelling or typing errors on keyboards and tablets.

Missed Sales Opportunities At ProWein 2018 Wine & Spirits Trade Fair in Düsseldorf

Improve English Presentation SkillsCustomer Care copy

"At the 2018 international ProWein Trade Fair For Wines and Spirits, other booths are crowed and filled with excitement.  Could the speaker on the left's persona, lack of passion for the product and poor communication in English be making the difference? We believe so!"

While attending ProWein this week as a member of the press, I discovered that the "Best of the Show" wines selection stand at the convention remains mostly empty because there are no people representing the bottles.  An engaging video presentation here, or better yet, well-trained professional sales and marketing people on hand would attract more buyers to taste specific wines and increase the possibility of improved results.

"Wine does not sell itself automatically.  Without passionate and knowledgeable people representing your products to distributors and customers in English, your sales figures will not dramatically increase."

Audience Respect
