GlobalEnglish Launches Global Webinar Series

June 18, 2006 — GlobalEnglish Corporation, the leading online English learning and support service provider for business communication, today announced that it will kick off its global web seminar series on Thursday, June 22, 2006. The inaugural session, titled "Managing Change in Your Multinational Organization: How to Anticipate Employee Development Needs," will feature Rich Taylor, Head of Learning for Reuters Business Divisions, and Rich Busby, Solution Planner for HR Capability Development with Accenture. Additional web seminars are planned for later in 2006.

During this online panel discussion, Mr. Taylor and Mr. Busby will discuss some of today's most challenging issues for human resource and learning organizations, including off-shoring, mergers and acquisitions, and other business-plan changes. They will share their observations and engage participants in a discussion about employee-development topics such as reactivity vs. predictivity, standardization vs. flexibility, and top-down vs. bottom-up strategies.

"This will be a high-level, thought-provoking session and an excellent opportunity to learn from two of our most visionary and successful clients," said Deepak Desai, President and CEO of GlobalEnglish Corporation. "Both men have successfully managed a great deal of change and growth in their organizations, and they are experts on how to ensure that a workforce can adapt and thrive in the competitive global marketplace."

Prior to his current role, Mr. Taylor led training for TIBCO Finance Technology and Reuters News & Data, specializing in needs analysis, curriculum design and adult learning. Mr. Busby's past experience spans the training lifecycle, including project management, needs assessment, design, development and delivery.

Attendees from around the world are expected to participate in the event, scheduled for 8:00 a.m. PT on Thursday, June 22. If you would like to register for this event, please go to www.globalenglish.com and click the webinar banner, or contact us at webinars@globalenglish.com.
