Using the best English for business

Nick Keith MANick Keith MA

Dedicated to helping business people to use the best English for business, my services help individuals and corporates hone and improve their communications.

With experience as a businessman and a copywriter, I can make the best of your English business communications – speaking, writing, and listening with clarity and confidence.

M y skills include teaching business people English one-to-one or in a class. Clients are trained to speak and write top quality business English.  A graduate of Oxford University with a second class honours degree in Modern History, I am a published author and certified teacher for TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) by Trinity College London.

Business English training courses

I worked for 10 years on the staff of The Times in London, and became Sports Editor.  In the last 25 years I have crafted copy and produced publications for blue-chip British businesses, and for SMEs in various sectors, such as motor manufacturing, real estate, perfume, sport, travel, and utilities.

I have long experience of looking after people in many different business sectors, latterly as Communications Director of Navigate, a full service marketing communications company. I ensured that work was delivered with high quality and accuracy, and on time, on budget and to the client’s complete satisfaction.

A lifelong devotee of the English language in its many colourful forms, my passions include writing, reading, speaking, listening, sport, publications, the cinema and the theatre.

With that broad business experience behind me, my aim is to provide business English courses, in classes or one to one, which are of the highest quality but down to earth. Learning English can be interesting, inspiring and rewarding.

I spent 2 weeks in the UK with Nick and his family. Everything was very good – the room, the house, the environment, and the food was delicious. The course was really adapted for me. During the meals all the family corrected me and participated in my Learning. I liked our everyday walks with Nick and his dog (lovely dog). During our walks we discussed many things (politics, democracy, business, energy, plants...).
