Professor Judith Baxter, Professor of Applied Linguistics at Aston University, has joined forces with the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce (GBCC) to launch the online series entitled ‘Using Language Effectively’.
She will also talk about the series at a GBCC’s Women in Business conference at De Vere Venues, Colmore Gate, on March 17. Other speakers include include Lorely Burt, MP for Solihull, Sameena Ali Khan, ITV Central presenter, and Patricia Freshwater, of Business Adrenaline. The event will also include a company case study and a panel discussion.
Professor Baxter said: “In the run up to International Women’s Day it is important to both celebrate the successes of women in business, and offer support for those still looking to make their mark. The ‘Using Language Effectively’ series is a valuable resource for all aspiring women.”
Prof Baxter will be speaking about the ‘Using Language Effectively’ resource – which can be found on the Chamber website - and her research at the Chambers’ Women in Business Conference on March 17.
