about us

Who we are
talktotheworld.com is a management specialist network with over 500 authors, coaches, consultants and trainers including MBAs from the top 5 and top 30 business schools worldwide (e.g. Wharton, INSEAD, Oxford, Cambridge, Warwick).  

What we offer
Our programme includes over 60 management topics and can be booked as seminars, workshops & lectures. We also offer some management modules via our shop.

How we work
Client's needs are individually analysed together with each participant through our proficiency test. This test will show the knowledge & language level of each learner to then determine an individual training programme defining targets & progress.  

the talktotheworld.com programme

The core concept behind talktotheworld.com is entirely new. One not only learns management skills, techniques and methods but also the business English needed for that. No other management education and development or English language training course available at present offers business managers this two-in-one learning combination.

 

for non-English native speakers

In countries like Germany, Latin America or Spain, training participants go two to three times through the same training topic. For instance to learn presentation skills, a German student would at first learn presentation skills in his mother tongue German. When a company discovers the need for experienced presenters for the international market, these students would then receive additional training in the English language (refresher courses). Thirdly, the company could then register for courses which are geared to presentation skills in English.

 

for English native speakers

English native speakers can use our management programme to improve their management performance.

 

save over 50% in time and money

Company training provided through talktotheworld.com enables human resource managers to save over 50% of their time and money by combining management skills and English language training. With the increase of globalisation, English retains its status as the worldwide leading business language! talktotheworld.com offers a two-in-one solution: management education and development combined with English language training.

 

17 specific management and communication skills modules

To boost your skills we have so far developed 17 specific management and communication skills modules. Each topic requires approximately 3 to 10 hours to complete depending on the user‘s language proficiency level (beginner, intermediate to advanced). They are easy to use, you can complete one topic every day or week or month. The management and communication skills training increases the student‘s efficiency and output. Participants can achieve results and performances which are much better than the ones previously obtained (e.g. in negotiations, presentations, marketing or sales).

 

history of talktotheworld.com

This programme was conceived as a result of the frustrated search of a German businessman for a business management English course that best suited his requirements.

Having tried out numerous English courses, both privately and at language schools, the gentleman gave up; he could find no suitable course to satisfy his specific needs in the areas of management, marketing or advertising.

Consequently he approached a publishing group with his problem and there was born the vision of this unique course - two-in-one: management skills combined with English language training.

Over the next two and a half years a team of over seventy English teaching experts, management consultants and professionals in the areas of management, marketing and advertising from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, New Zealand, the USA and Germany worked together to develop the talktotheworld.com series.

The series is aimed at executives, entrepreneurs, managers and all those who wish to achieve high performance in English while at the same time improving their knowledge of business management skills and methods.

The talktotheworld.com business management and English training series is available online via the World Wide Web.

All rights are reserved. talktotheworld.com (3tw.org network) accepts no responsibility or liability regarding material on this site. Information supplied on this site is of a general nature only.

freelance contributions

Helpful information for contributors providing work to the 3tw.org network and talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platform and their associated online websites, magazines, or any media forms.

Published: The 3tw.org networks’ and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms’ terms of business for freelance writers and contributors.

 
The 3tw.org network and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms are happy to publish work produced by freelance writers and contributors, and their work is showcased in the titles daily and appreciated worldwide by our readers. Some contributors, including readers whose letters and reviews are published, don't receive a fee, but do get the opportunity to have their work published in a worldwide 3tw.org network with their cooperation partners and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms and their online news.

 
It is very important for both parties that there is a clear understanding early on over what rights in the material are owned by which party. As is the case with other online news, newspapers and magazines, we need to have certain rights to allow us to do things with all the material in our titles and media.

 
One example is that since the early days of the internet we have put the information online, on our own group's and network websites and those of other third party hosts. This gives our material much greater exposure and ensures that the quality writing which we publish in the 3tw.org network and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms is widely available to interested readers in a variety of archives and sites on the net.

 
We also license photocopying, and feed the contents of the 3tw.org network and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms to a range of associated newspapers and magazines and other outlets.

 
Writers will note that apart from our own right of first publication, which is exclusive, all 3tw.org network and talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms’ other rights are non-exclusive which means that writers and contributors can also freely exploit the works themselves in these marketplaces.

 
Accordingly, freelance writers and contributors should be aware that the Terms set out below are the terms of business that will apply to all material you may provide to us, however supplied - commissioned, sent on spec or whatever.

 
There can be no variation of these Terms. The only exception to this rule would be in the event that a Director of the 3tw.org network and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms has expressly varied the Terms by a prior agreement in writing. If any writer is not happy with the Terms then they should not offer us any material, nor accept any commission from us.

 

TERMS

 

1. The important point for you is that you retain copyright in the material.

 
2. For its part, the 3tw.org network and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms has the following rights over the material:

 
2.1 the exclusive, worldwide right to first publication in online platforms, newspapers/magazines or any media;

 
2.2 the non-exclusive right to publish, syndicate, distribute and exploit the material in all present and future media and formats, including print, electronic, online and others. If your material is syndicated by us to an end user customer as an individual piece of work in print ("spot sale") you will receive 50% of the net revenue attributable to that sale;

 
2.3 the non-exclusive right to include the material on any website and in any database, archive or library on- or off-line or in any other present or future media; and

2.4 non-exclusive reprographic rights

 
3. All the rights detailed above may be exercised by the 3tw.org network and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms or by others to whom we have licensed these rights. You will note that the rights we get under points 2-4 are non-exclusive so you are also free to exercise these rights, but of the 3tw.org network and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms syndication department is set up to handle all enquiries for spot sales in print so we ask you to pass on to them any such enquiries that may be directed to you.

 
The 3tw.org network and the talktotheworld.com Ltd. e-learning platforms' continuing ability to commission material from freelance writers is dependent on us holding the necessary rights. Therefore any material a freelance writer submits to us is deemed to have been supplied in full knowledge and acceptance of these Terms.

Terms and Conditions

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Set forth below are the terms and conditions (these "Terms and Conditions") governing the talktotheworld.com website (and / or talktotheworld.org and / or 3tw.org and / or any other sub-domains) located at, or linked to through, the root URL 3tw.org or any others, which may expand or change from time to time (the "Website"). As used herein, the term "talktotheworld.com" refers to talktotheworld.com, the sole owner and operator of the Website (3tw.org); the term "you" or "your" refers to an individual, representing yourself or, if applicable, acting as legal representative for a group, business entity or corporation.

Use of Materials Found on the Website: The information, artwork, text, video, audio, pictures, software and other intellectual property (collectively, "Materials") contained on the Website are protected by copyright and international laws.


You may only access and use the Materials for personal or educational purposes or as expressly provided for in applicable talktotheworld.com program terms and conditions. You may not otherwise reproduce, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, modify, or create derivative works of the Materials, unless authorized by the appropriate copyright owner(s).

In the event that you print Materials found on the Website, you must include any copyright notice originally included with the Materials on all copies. You may not link directly to any media file located on a talktotheworld.com server, except where explicitly allowed to do so. You should not attempt to claim any Materials as your own work. Any software downloadable or otherwise available on the Website is provided subject to the terms of the applicable license agreement. Before using any talktotheworld.com logo or trademark, please contact talktotheworld.com

Copyright and Trademark Infringement Policy and Notification Procedure: talktotheworld.com does not own the musical compositions, sound recordings, art or other written or visual images (collectively, the "Content") posted by third parties to the Website.

Since talktotheworld.com is not in a position to determine who has the prevailing claim to use any particular Content or Name posted to the Website, its policy on such matters is that they be resolved directly by the parties alleging misuse of their Content and/or Name (the "Complainants") and the Authors. We recommend that Complainants immediately notify Authors about allegations of infringement by going to the Author's page on the Website, clicking the Contact link and contacting the Author directly. It has been talktotheworld.com’s experience that most Authors are honest and responsible citizens who may not realize they are engaged in infringing activities. Typically, once notified of a claim, Authors voluntarily cease using such infringing Content and/or Name on the Website and elsewhere.

Complainants may notify talktotheworld.com concerning any Content and/or Name being used on the Website in violation of their rights by sending an email to contact@talktotheworld.com only shall use information provided by Complainants in accordance with its then-current Privacy Policy and as reasonably necessary to address any allegations contained therein, which may include disclosing some or all of the information to Authors. In most cases, soon after receiving written notice alleging infringement, talktotheworld.com either will remove the allegedly infringing Content and/or Name from those web pages identified or, at its election, remove those web pages.

Your Conduct: You shall use the Website for lawful purposes only. You shall not post or transmit via the Website any material which violates or infringes in any way upon the rights of others, which is unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, vulgar, obscene, profane or otherwise objectionable, which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any law, or which, without talktotheworld.com's express prior approval, contains advertising or any solicitation with respect to products or services.

a. Ist die an den Kunden gelieferte Ware mit Fehlern behaftet, so wird talktotheworld.com Ltd. den Mangel beseitigen oder Ersatz
liefern. Ist eine Mängelbeseitigung oder eine Ersatzlieferung innerhalb einer angemessenen Frist nicht möglich, so kann der Kunde wahlweise den Kaufpreis mindern oder vom Vertrag zurücktreten.
b. Die talktotheworld.com Ltd. haftet für das Fehlen zugesicherter Eigenschaften.
c. Die talktotheworld.com Ltd. haftet für vorsätzliche oder grob fahrlässige Verletzungen wesentlicher Vertragspflichten.

d. Für den Fall einer leicht fahrlässigen Verletzung einer Hauptleistungspflicht beschränkt sich die Haftung höchstens bis zum typischerweise vorhersehbaren Schaden, der den Kaufpreis regelmäßig nicht überschreitet und auf Schäden an der bestellten Ware begrenzt ist.

Nutzungsdaten).
b. Der Kunde stimmt einer Verarbeitung und Nutzung der Bestandsdaten gemäß Ziffer a) für Zwecke der Beratung, der Werbung und der Marktforschung zu.


10. Schlussbestimmungen
a. Es gilt das Recht der Bundesrepublik Deutschland unter Ausschluss des UN-Kaufrechts. Ist der Kunde Vollkaufmann, so ist der
Gerichtsstand Hamburg oder nach Wahl der talktotheworld.com Ltd. ein allgemeiner Gerichtsstand.
b. Ein nach diesen Bedingungen geschlossener Vertrag bleibt auch bei rechtlicher Unwirksamkeit einzelner Punkte in seinen übrigen Teilen verbindlich. Unwirksame Bestimmungen sind von den Parteien durch wirksame zu ersetzen, die dem gewollten Zweck möglichst nahe kommen. Entsprechendes gilt im Fall einer Vertragslücke.

Die talktotheworld.com Ltd. behält sich vor, diese Beiträge zu kürzen oder zu löschen, sofern diese einen Inhalt haben, der mit der geltenden Rechtsordnung nicht vereinbar ist.
