Occasio Mastermind Group

In my 21 years of experience working in a professional international environment, I continuously see the challenges of communication and collaboration between people from different cultures and with international colleagues.  This has led to many missed business opportunities for these professionals and the companies they work for.

I am convinced that one of the most effective ways of training these professionals to improve their presentation, negotiation, and communication skills is by Role Playing.  

Role Playing can help reduce communication barriers and the fear of failure, and build up confidence and collaboration.

In order to provide real solutions to improve Business English training, and with a focus on real-life role playing and simulations and continual feedback and evaluation, we have created the Occasio Mastermind Group.  In these small and personalized working groups, you engage in practical, real-life scenarios that reflect the challenges you encounter daily or will encounter in the future as a professional working with international colleagues or clients.

The Occasio Mastermind Groups consist of a maximum of six participants, promoting ample time for dialogue, collective learning, and personalized support for each member.  Gain insights into cross-cultural dynamics and effective communication strategies to navigate the ever-expanding globalized world of business.

  • Format: Online meetings via Zoom, enabling you to participate from anywhere.  Materials and practical exercises may be presented in-between sessions.
  • Duration:Two sessions per week, each lasting 1.5 hours.  Each group lasts for one month (4 weeks), with the possibility of continuing if interested.  Benefit from 12 intensive hours of learning and practice.

Through role-playing exercises and simulations, professionals practice communicating with colleagues or clients from different cultural backgrounds. This hands-on experience allows them to apply their cross-cultural communication knowledge in a safe and private environment.

Through feedback and evaluation in these small groups, professionals identify areas for improvement with the inputs received within the group as well.

  • Do you fear making mistakes when communicating with professionals from other countries?
  • Do you lack practice in speaking Business English in a more professional environment?
  • Do you feel frustrated because you do not know the right words or expressions to use when working with international colleagues, clients, or partners?
  • Do you feel you could get a promotion at work, or a higher salary, if you knew how to communicate better in English?  

Join a Occasio Mastermind Group to improve your Business English communication skills, build confidence, and understand how to react to diverse cultural situations and behavioral norms in the global business arena.
