English to Put You Ahead in International Business

English to Put You Ahead in International Business

With experience working at Japanese branches of top international corporations like Apple and Oracle, authors Yamamoto and Konishi bring you everything you need to know in order to make it in global business. Interlaced with tales of lessons the authors learned the hard way, as well as episodes of their interactions with renowned business figures such as Steve Jobs and Larry Ellison, English for International Business illustrates how learning key English phrases can significantly improve your business’ standing internationally.

Message from author Kenji Yamamoto: “Even though I worked at top corporations like IBM, Oracle, EMC, and Apple, my dealings with people like Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, and Tim Cook led to repeated episodes of frustration and anger about my limited English capabilities. In this book, native speaker Konishi introduces fantastic examples of English explained so well that even a person like me with horrible English can understand their meaning. It’s really embarrassing to share my terrible English with readers, but I hope that by comparing my English to Konishi’s, you can learn how to express yourself more clearly and articulately. I plan on using this book for my own studies!”
