Event description

Description

This challenge is FREE OF CHARGE to STATE SCHOOL students and will include lunch and refreshments. The fee for other schools is £165 plus VAT per group of 6 students.

Please note, registration of interest does not guarantee your place. The University of Surrey will then allocate places against their priority list.

If you have been allocated a place, you will be sent a link to a Survey Monkey form asking for participant details. To confirm your place, this will need to be filled in by Friday 15th February. Remaining schools will be placed on a waiting list and we will advise you as soon as possible if a place becomes available.

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:

  • 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
