The Island Project- Business English Workshop

The special seminar-workshop for managers and project leaders

The “Island Project” is a unique chance over two days to discusss, brainstorm, present, negotiate and work together in a team which convinces the “Business Lions” that your concept is the best – of course, all of this is in English!
