Written by an expert in business and international communication, Key Business Skills offers professional advice and practice in the following areas:

It provides activities to develop key skills needed by executives, such as dealing with difficult questions in presentations, intervening successfully in conference calls and meetings, recognizing the signals in a negotiation in English and networking without causing offence.
