GlobalEnglish Joins New Ambassador Program With Europe's Leading Independent Benchmark Study Organization

GlobalEnglish Partners With Towards Maturity, Europe's Most Comprehensive Independent Authority on the Use of Learning Technologies in the Workplace

BRISBANE, CA--(Marketwire - December 21, 2010) - GlobalEnglish Corporation (www.GlobalEnglish.com), the leading provider of on-demand learning and support for business English communication, today announced its participation as a Founding Ambassador in Towards Maturity's newly created Ambassador Program.

Towards Maturity, the internationally recognized benchmarking practice for learning innovation, launched its new Ambassador Program for learning provider companies to actively support its ongoing independent Benchmark Survey. The survey results are distributed throughout the year and collectively published in the annual Towards Maturity Benchmark Report. The report showcases industry-wide trends, best practices and groundbreaking advances for the purpose of continually improving the impact of learning technologies in the workplace.

"When it comes to learning innovation and performance, our passion has always been to provide an authoritative, independent research base, which helps organizations to raise the bar in their pursuit of excellence," said Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity. "Working together as Ambassadors for change, I believe we can improve good practice, raise awareness and drive the industry forward."

The Towards Maturity Benchmark Report is considered the most comprehensive independent review of the use of learning technologies in the workplace within the UK and Europe. The report's performance indicators and best practice benchmarks have been developed through the participation of 1200 organizations and expansive industry collaboration. Consideration is given to how organizations are using technology innovation to meet changing business skills needs as well as changes in use of technology, drivers and results, barriers and the implementation practices that directly correlate to results.

"As a provider of on-demand solutions to improve business English communication skills in global corporations, GlobalEnglish helps companies increase productivity and collaboration that will advance their competitive global business strategies," said Deepak Desai, CEO and president of GlobalEnglish. "We are delighted to participate as a Founding Ambassador in this new program and join forces with an organization as reputable and forward-thinking as Towards Maturity. We share the same high standards and goals for successful skill development that directly impacts business results in the workplace."
