IATEFL Hungary's Business English Special Interest Group in action again!
The next Business English ‘extra’ Creative Cafe event will be held on Friday 22 May, 2015, 4-6pm at the Libra Foreign Language Bookshop, Kölcsey u. 2. in Budapest.
The event is two-fold. The main part is a workshop with Tapolcai-Malaczkov Szilvia.
In the second part, we will be focusing on the 20 June BESIG/ event, to clarify what our role there will be, and the plans we have for autumn 2015. This is a chance for participants to join in, get involved, and make suggestions to shape our network!

Presentation skills: Involving the audience
In this workshop my aim is to share with fellow teachers the experience I have gathered while teaching presentation skills to business college students. I’ll concentrate on the major challenge that students seem to face while preparing a persuasive presentation: how to win over the audience. This session will include how to involve the audience from the start, and ways of promoting interaction during the presentation. By the end of the workshop we will have several practical solutions on how to involve and win over our audience.  
Szilvia teaches at Külker, the Budapest Business School, College of International Management. Besides holding a degree in English language teaching, she is also about to graduate as an Economist.

Others coming along to this event – for both the Presentation skills workshop, and the discussion in the second part – include Jasmina Sadovska, Mary Sousa, Philip Saxon and Rachel Appleby. We had a great turn-out for our March get-together, and are optimistic for another this time, given the wide coverage this topic has! It’ll be relevant not only within Business English teaching contexts, but also for adults, and secondary school teachers. Do join us!
