Bloomberg is arguably the #1 business website in the world. So if you want to master the ability to TALK BUSINESS, Bloomberg is a must! If you don't have the ability to 1) hear 2) understand and 3) discuss the many economic and financial topics discussed on Bloomberg, then you don't really have the ability to do business internationally.
Many business executives can read and write business English, but they have difficulty hearing it. Even if you understand business, if you can't hear what people are saying in a meeting, you are seriously handicapped!
That's why this BloombergNow Course is so valuable! The format is simple: We watch a Bloomberg video that you choose and every time you have difficulty understanding the business jargon or the financial and economic concepts being discussed, you stop the video and I explain them. The point here is that you are choosing videos that really interest you and are germane to your particular line of buisness.
With practice, your ear will become accustomed to hearing the most sophisticated business English on the planet and as a result, your confidence will increase exponentially. The result? You will be far more effective in every business meeting or conference call you participate in. Also, you'll be on top of the latest economic news and be able to quote it. That will make a big difference in how your colleagues perceive you.
