I never usually have any New Year’s resolutions. Mainly because I don’t believe in waiting until the last day of the week or year, for that matter, to commit oneself to changing physically, mentally and spiritually when in reality one has spent all year figuring out ways of indulging in “self sabotage”.

But hey, we all change and I do too. So, this year, the omnipresent feeling of doom, gloom and ruin that “the crisis” has given most people in this country, has actually served a purpose as, for the first time ever, the thought of doing something totally different started to attract me. Yes ladies and gentlemen, I do have some New Year’s resolutions and as I don’t usually go for the humble¹ side of things my list now includes improvements in all areas of my life and business.

I will not bore you with all the sordid details on what or how I plan to change but what I will do is show you how some of these changes may affect you, our student! You heard me right. The changes in me, will affect you! And this is what the Chaos Theory states- when a butterfly flaps² its wings in Brazil the effect will be noticeable in some way or another in China- or Spain for that matter.

To become a butterfly though, one must first be a caterpillar. Well, Emerson has been a caterpillar for a long time. And, during that time, it has invested all its energy in listening to its clients and their needs- to you. This has definitely provided us a solid ground on which to develop the NEW Emerson spirit and services.

The time has now come, and at Emerson we are proud to present the new services we are sure will lend you, our students and clients, a competitive edge³.

Business and Leadership Skills Seminars

Emailing skills & netiquette
Killer presentation skills
Effective negotiation techniques
Time management

On this blog, we will be including the previews for all of these seminars. You can already look at the one for presentation skills- it is an example of a presentation style called Pecha Kucha. It summarises a four hour seminar into a little over 6 minutes!

All of the seminars are in English, aimed at students whose levels are Intermediate or higher and for people who seek to challenge and exceed themselves.

So, if you still haven’t made your New Year’s resolution for improving your English, start now with Emerson. It’s never too late!

¹ humble: modest
² to flap: movement needed to fly
³ edge: in this case it means advantage- look at dictionary for more definitions.
