New series of books & apps offers essential tools for tomorrow’s
corporate leaders

"ExecuSpeak Dictionary is dedicated to anyone who has ever been
frustrated or confused by American Business English, because business
is another language.” Carol Heiberger

Carol Heiberger -
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?SCOREPhila/5c044badcb/960ab26fe6/5ef005dc7d not only has a head for business, but also a way with words.
Throughout her corporate career, she considered her ability to write
clearly as a secret weapon, but noticed a persistent communication
gap between her colleagues and their coworkers. It was this gap, she
realized, that hindered progress.

"I was the only multi-lingual person on the team because I had
learned to speak the language of all of the departments—finance,
marketing, engineering, etc.” Heiberger continues, “Now my goal is to
facilitate communication between all functions…in the meeting room
and beyond. The first step to better communication is to ensure a
shared vocabulary.”

Heiberger created the ExecuSpeak Dictionary -
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?SCOREPhila/5c044badcb/960ab26fe6/b5860332bd ® to help everyone understand the language of business. The book,
apps, and their industry-specific companions break down business
jargon into simple terms intended to expand everyone’s working
vocabulary, regardless of their reading and speaking proficiency.

What makes ExecuSpeak Dictionary so unique?
Proprietary formula based on proven principles of language
acquisition Includes cross-section of over 500 commonly used terms
Organized alphabetically with 18 subject matter classes No scrolling
required in smartphone formats Indexes ease navigation and accelerate
learning Each entry includes the term, a plain English definition,
used in a sentence Available in a variety of paper and electronic
formats to meet specific user needs and maximize benefit ExecuSpeak
Dictionary provides an innovative solution to the challenges of
workplace integration, knowledge transfer, customer service, sales
and marketing support, as well as executive and board mandates. The
ground-breaking method is a proprietary formula based on proven
principles of linguistics and expedited language acquisition. The
books acknowledge both the challenges and benefits of domain-specific
terms, while helping readers to incorporate lists of lingo inherent
to their industry and its protocols.

Carol Heiberger’s experience includes a long career in new product
development for technical industries after receiving her MBA from
Wharton. More recently, she’s taught business planning to
degree-seeking MBA students and knowledge-seeking adults. Volunteer
service includes 15 years reviewing loan requests for a micro-lender,
serving as a judge for the Wharton Business Plan Competition, and as
a Business Counselor for SCORE. She has been a writing coach in the
Wharton Communications Program and during 2012 wrote the “Word of the
Month” column for TheStreet.com -

NEXT ON OUR LIST is to get the social media up and running in a

needs to be done. We’ll have some memes that look like this:

Irregulars.
There is a collection of not-so-perfectly good books sitting on the
floor of my office. It’s time to get them into your hands. What’s
“wrong” with them, you ask? A missing comma and a clunky sentence
(Zoning), hinky headers (Residential Real Estate), plain headers (the
Original)… nothing serious but they’re not perfect.

About ExecuSpeak Dictionary®

Most dictionaries provide grammatical information, primary
definition, alternative definitions, and more. While business
dictionaries are organized by subject, such as “1000 Marketing
Terms,” “Accounting Dictionary,” or “Investment Terms You Need to
Know,” ExecuSpeak Dictionary definitions take into account that the
language of business is dependent on context and frequently uses
common language in special ways.

ExecuSpeak Dictionary -
http://cts.vresp.com/c/?SCOREPhila/5c044badcb/960ab26fe6/d8071aaf86 ® is a cross-section of over 500 commonly used terms that are
described in plain English and then used in a sample sentence.

The dictionary is organized alphabetically with 18 subject matter
indexes. You may use the book to learn the basic meaning of a term
and also add to your understanding by seeing the term in its subject
or business context.

We’re adding memes to the mix.  Any opinions?

It may seem quiet, but lots going on behind the scenes

August 2014
www.execuspeakdictionary.com -

As you may, or may not realize, ExecuSpeak Dictionary is a start-up.
Once the apps were approved in the Spring, it meant that we were
ready to take the next step. That would be going public… not as in
a sale of stock but as in letting people know that we are here.

At the moment, we’re putting the finishing touches on the overhaul of
the website… it’s been cleaned up and made SEO friendly. I’m
currently finishing up the behind the scenes stuff with the YouTube
channel and its 30+ videos and podcasts. We’re setting up the blog
so that I can add relevant articles, videos, and Word-of-the-Day
without making myself crazy.

Part of the plan is a more active social media presence. In addition
to Word-of-the-Day, there will be additional blog entries. What I
know about the blog(s): Our focus is business people who recognize
the value of a shared vocabulary and the need to understand technical
and professional terminology and/or jargon in order to communicate.
All of the social media options will get you Word of the Day. The
articles and information will be about :

  • NeuroScience
  • Linguistics
    Language Acquisition
  • Global English

There will be no lists of terms to avoid, no examples of good jargon or bad jargon. The validity of jargon is not for outsiders to judge.

LOI

Letter of Intent. A generally nonbinding outline of an agreement. Similar to an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding). Usage : If the two parties cannot agree to the wording in an LOI then it’s likely they won’t be able to agree to wording in an actual contract.
