DIT East Midlands: You Can Export – Doing Business in the Spanish speaking world

12 October, 2018, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


Department of International Trade

The ability and willingness to speak to people in their native language, even if it’s only a few words, will help build bridges in a way previously unimagined.  With 350 million native Spanish speakers in over 20 countries that have Spanish as an official language, the potential for UK businesses to be doing business with the Spanish speaking world is huge.  This interactive workshop will give companies the tools to build really positive business relationships with either a Spanish or Latin American audience by investigating the culture and learning some basic words and phrases.

What’s on offer?

By the end of the session you will be able to:

  • Understand social and business etiquette
  • Meet and greet clients
  • Introduce yourself and your company
  • Order food and drink, and pay the bill
  • Build up a list of key phrases for business emails
  • Leave a simple telephone message

Why attend?

In business, great communication and customer care skills are essential to your success.  So exporting to countries where English is not the official language and where cultural norms may be quite different can seem daunting.  DIT has years of experience in helping UK exporters overcome the barriers around international communication.  And our workshops provide a fantastic opportunity to tackle some of these barriers head on.
