Presenting in English from Exame

Posted on September 26, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |


Watch this video from the excellent Magazine Exame. Mr Polito is correct, if you can’t present in Portuguese than you’ll have difficulty in English.


Now after you watch, if you can present then imagine if your English is not very good. Sorry Professor, you do need to worry about your English. You need to express yourself well and speak clearly in any language wether it be Portuguese of not. You have to sell yourself and sound competent and professional or the people listening will not be impressed.

If managers in Brazil maintain a level of English as you suggest then it will never be seen as having professionals of quality.

I’ have had to work on presetaion in English with many government officials. If they did not present and have great English then Brazil would suffer. I remember economist coming to me to see if I could understand what they were talking about when they had to explain the fiscal repsonsibilty law during the FHC government and the reducing of the government debt in the Lula government. If they had the type of English you suggested here, no foreign investor would have felt confident in putting their money in the country.

Taking yout English seriously, is only for serious people.
