Why people have accents, and how to lose them

When English isn't your first language, how do you best make yourself understood to an audience whose first language isn't English either?

Singapore and Kuala Lumpur are regional hubs for many multinational companies. They play host to many expats, who come from many different countries and bring many different accents with them.

In a business setting, accents can hinder your message being understood and lead to ambiguity and misinterpretation.

So, why do people speak with accents, and what can they do to lose them?

We get asked this question a lot during our media skills and executive presence courses, which is why we have teamed up with Saveria Cristofari to coach senior business leaders.

Watch HBM's Mark Laudi discuss the secret of clear communication with Saveria.

Drop us a line if you are a communications professional and you would like to have a discrete conversation about the communications skills of a senior business leader you manage.
