In the world of business, what is it like to try and sell your product to countries that are unfamiliar with it and that don’t speak your language? Selling goods overseas is very important for many UK businesses requiring skills such as excellent communication, cultural awareness and a dash of entrepreneurial flair. Many school students will go on to join companies that export, so this is an ideal opportunity for them to find out how helpful their language skills will be in the global marketplace.

Outline of the day

The day will include:

  • A marketing and selling challenge for which there will be a prize for the winning team

  • A keynote talk about languages in export

  • A presentation by the students using their target language(s)

  • An introduction to some marketing techniques

  • An opportunity to talk to international business people
