Workshops

Our day workshops enable groups of colleagues to improve their professional skills and business English in one day. Workshops are very popular and participants report seeing rapid progress over the course of the day.


Each workshop is tailored to the needs of your staff and delivered at your company. Workshops are led by Emily Stallard and Honami Matsutani.  Emily is the owner of Orchid English and an experienced English language teacher. Honami is an expert on international management and business coaching. This mix of experience and skills results in a unique offering for professionals who speak English as a foreign language. Our energetic sessions balance technical input, participation and practice. We currently run workshops on:


  • Business Emailing
  • Presentation Skills
  • Negotiation Skills
  • International Project Management
  • Effective Communication in Meetings

Testimonials for our Presentations Workshop at Hitachi Europe, Maidenhead, 2017


Good balance between theory and practice.

The presentation phrases were beneficial and the exercises were enjoyable.

Great to be able to network with colleagues from other parts of the company,
with whom we normally don’t have opportunities to mix.

This type of training is essential if we are to perform effectively.

Good time allocation and balanced contents kept us focused all day.
