GlobalEnglish to Host GlobalExchanges Latin America

Senior executives from Global 500 companies to gather in Mexico City to discuss the impact of globalization

Brisbane, CA, May 14, 2008 — GlobalEnglish Corporation (www.GlobalEnglish.com), the leading provider of on-demand learning and support for Business English communication, today announced that it will host GlobalExchanges Latin America on May 21 in Mexico City. The event will address strategic issues confronting large global companies in the wake of globalization, focusing on the importance of Business English communication skills.

Representatives from Global 500 companies--including Adecco, AstraZeneca, General Electric, Novartis, Procter & Gamble, and Santander--will convene in Mexico City to share best practices for addressing the challenges and opportunities created by global growth in new and emerging markets. Agenda topics include the impact of globalization, how global growth is driving the need for improved Business English communication skills, and successful strategies for deploying learning globally.

"Globalization has forever changed how companies operate, and the level of complexity for recruiting and managing a qualified workforce is much greater," said Deepak Desai, President and CEO of GlobalEnglish Corporation. "We are hosting GlobalExchanges to provide business leaders with a forum for identifying solutions to a critical problem: the lack of an English-proficient workforce and its impact on collaboration and productivity in global businesses."
