Working in the compliance field means having to deal with a complex regulatory environment governed by international norms and an increasingly globalised business context. Under these circumstances, sound communication skills in English are not simply a nice-to-have, but rather a requirement for doing the job well.

This seminar is designed to build precisely the English communication skills that are indispensable for working in the compliance field today. The focus will be on developing the participants’ conceptual knowledge of Legal English in the compliance field, as well as their oral and written communication skills in a compliance context.

At the end of the seminar, participants will have the opportunity to submit a practical written task, on which they will receive detailed feedback.

    Day 1: Fr. 06.03.2020, start: 10.00, end: 17.30
    Day 2: Sa. 07.03.2020, start: 09.00, end: 16.00
