Verbal Communication

Business English Phrases – Best Examples

In today’s topic “Business English Phrases – Best Examples” we will look at what phrases to use to express your feelings. Expressing feelings during a meeting predisposes the other party to be more open and to start a discussion on a certain topic.
Moreover, in this way you can extract valuable information about the customer and also create superlatives about yourself. To impress someone, you don’t just have to express positive emotions, you have to express your true opinion – even if sometimes it’s negative. In this way, the other party will see that you have your own opinion and are not just trying to impress him in some way.
