In this issue we look at how to become a more confident public speaker; how to put together a CV that will impress prospective employers and direct you to a site where you can access the best business blogs.

Welcome to the latest issue of Business Bites.

I think there are times in our lives when all of us – even the most confident individuals – suffer from low self-esteem. So what can you do to boost it? Here are a few tips:

  • Don’t compare yourself with other people.
  • Make a list of things you are good at and what aspects of your life you can feel positive about. Then remind yourself about these regularly.
  • When others praise you, don’t feel embarrassed and brush the compliments aside – accept that you deserve them.
  • When something goes wrong, accept that you’ve made a mistake but don’t continue to blame yourself. Get over it!
  • Take the credit and give yourself a pat on the back when things go better than you had anticipated. Praise yourself!


It also helps to improve your self-esteem if you feel confident at work and socially, and one of the best ways of doing this is to make sure that you have the right knowledge and skills at your fingertips. If you work in an office you might find that studying the Advanced Business English Course gives you an advantage over your colleagues; or the Business English with Spoken English Course might help you to communicate better both in the work place and when you are mixing with other people.

If you want to run your own business our Start Your Own Business Course provides all the information you need to get started with confidence and our Professional Sales Techniques Course will help you sell your products or services.

But there is one area where many people lack self-confidence and that is public speaking. So, our article in this issue looks at how you can become a confident, compelling speaker. It’s a skill that most of us need at some time in our career and the better you become, the easier it will seem.

I hope you’ll enjoy the article and the rest of the newsletter. Don’t forget to visit the Business Training blog each week to pick up interesting business knowledge and invaluable tips.
