GlobalEnglish Unites Executives in Brazil for GlobalExchanges, Latin America

Local and Global Executives Convene to Collaborate on the Urgency to Improve Business English Skills in Global Workforces

BRISBANE, CA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) -  GlobalEnglish Corporation (, the leading provider of on-demand learning and support for business English communication, today announced GlobalExchanges Latin America 2010 will occur in São Paolo, Brazil on March 2. Senior executives from local and global organizations will join together to share their best practices and strategies for assessing and developing business English skills within their workforces. The event will focus on how these improved skills are helping leading companies to achieve competitive advantage in the global arena.

Executives from the Latin American divisions of IBM, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Emerson and Tenaris will address over 75 of their global colleagues from Deloitte, Oi, Banco Bradesco, Caterpillar, Roche and Walmart among many others. These executives will contribute their experiences implementing online business English development strategies and share the dramatic impact business English proficiency has on:

  • Increasing productivity across the global enterprise
  • Creating more efficient international team collaboration
  • Leveraging multi-cultural perspectives to drive global success
  • Achieving significant vendor and cost reductions 

"GlobalExchanges provides a world-class forum for these globally connected companies to share best practices. Experts address the specific business challenges derived from a lack of core competencies in business English skills. GlobalEnglish's solution plays a very strategic role in helping to overcome obstacles that directly impact successful global business operations," says Deepak Desai, President and CEO of GlobalEnglish Corporation. "As a leading Latin American country in the economic recovery, in large part due to their rapidly growing international presence, Brazil was the ideal location for the 2010 GlobalExchanges Latin America."

GlobalExchanges Latin America is an invitation-only event that will take place at the Hilton São Paolo Morumbi.

GlobalEnglish has also confirmed two other GlobalExchanges events in 2010; GlobalExchanges USA will take place in San Francisco during the month of June, and GlobalExchanges EMEA in Munich, Germany in September.
