It’s easily done. You’ve finished everything off and you’re rushing out of the office to start your well-earned break. Just one more thing – you need to put on the out of office reply so that people know when you’ll be back.
This is the problem. People are so often in a hurry when they do this task, that they make careless mistakes because they didn’t take the time to check the message. So you find out that people will be back in the office on 11nd April, 214th September or 11th Julyne.

If you want to improve your business English, language exchanges can help you as well because they give you the opportunity to practise speaking and listening in a more relaxed environment. It's even better if you can find someone who shares your interests.

Customers need to know that you are listening to and interested in them!
In this episode, I talk about an experience that I had last week. I had two meetings with two very different people. One of them got a new customer and the other lost the chance to do business because of his poor customer service. I talk about some lessons that can be learned from this experience.
In this episode, I talk about ways to help you remember some irregular verbs. I also give details of my 100 irregular verbs list, which you can request on the show notes page.
