From Business English to leadership – challenges and opportunities for ELT professionals

  • Afternoon Plenary

Presenter(s): Bob Dignen & Ian McMaster

sponsored by York Associates

Bob and Ian began their collaboration over 20 years ago, developing innovative articles on the field of Business English for Business Spotlight. Over their years, the collaboration evolved and the latter years were focused exclusively on the topic of international leadership skills. Bob and Ian would like to reflect on this migration from Business English to leadership, and explore the opportunities and challenges for ELT professionals who are looking to increase further the scope of their own activity beyond language into leadership. The event will be interactive with the audience expected to explore the leadership challenges which they and their clients have experienced, particularly over the last 18 months, with key topics such as trust, motivation, and hybrid teamwork presented for discussion.
