A good start to 2014
We have had a very busy winter at Abbey Communication with clients from Henkel, Mitsubishi Electric, TMEIC, BMS, Siemens, Cera Treves, Lear, Inform, Daiichi Sankyo, Affymetrix and others. We have helped develop their English skills for a range of professions, including pharmaceutical sales and research, engineering, project management, facilities management and financial management. We continue to welcome course participants from all over the world to our lovely town of Malmesbury, in the Cotswolds.
Secondly, we are now able to offer Skype and On-Line training as an addition to our immersion courses. We have introduced our Immersion Plus and Immersion Gold packages which include this blended learning approach.
Connecting with clients
Our directors, Alex and Sarah, have started 2014 with visits to clients in Europe. Alex went to Paris to visit our agents and to Normandy to visit our partners there, LIC. LIC gave Alex a wonderful welcome. She even managed to speak some French, which was a good reminder of just how our course participants feel when dealing with situations in English! Sarah has just been to Barcelona for a conference and reconnected with some contacts in Spain. International companies are beginning to invest more in training, and we are looking forward to the rest of 2014. Last month Alex also attended a conference run by UKTI and JETRO, which focused on help for UK companies doing business in Japan.
