Intelligent Business Teaching Tips
Intelligent Business Tip of the Month - April

Each unit of Intelligent Business opens with a dramatic image illustrating a business concept. For example, the image below represents ‘fat cats’ – CEOs and top senior executives are sometimes referred to as fat cats because of the enormous pay packages and rewards they are offered when joining a company.

As a lesson warmer, ask your students to come up with alternative images that could illustrate the same concept.

Why not use this with Intelligent Business Intermediate Coursebook Unit 4 ‘Fat Cats’ or Unit 2 ‘Terrorising the Talent’?
