Case Study - Understanding the Market We were approached by a business in the UK involved in the renewables technology sector who had identified Brazil as a prime market. However the company had next to no experience in the country. They wanted a professional training company to design a 2-day course for all their Directors and employees who would be working on the market; as well as understanding the culture, dos and donts, etc they also wanted a full overview of Brazil - to get an insider’s view of the economy, politics and of course the renewables market. The company is now in its 2nd year of selling goods and services into Brazil.

Which format a course will take depends on the client - we are open to any way of training as long as it is effective - this may be traditional face-to-face training in a classroom style environment, a webinar or even a hands-on coaching session.

First-class Cultural Trainers
All Commisceo trainers are hand picked for their expertise in four key areas:
- Deep knowledge of intercultural studies
- First-hand knowledge of a country/culture
- Experience in industry
- Inspiring training style
First and foremost, our trainers are passionate about intercultural communication and have a deep, academic knowledge of the subject Secondly, in order to be able to teach people about a country or culture we believe it is necessary to have lived and worked there, not just to have visited.
Thirdly, a trainer has to bring practical business know-how to the table such as management, marketing, sales or HR which can only come from work experience.
Lastly, we demand trainers that inspire and who can create fun, interactive learning environments.
The trainer you received will be the one best suited for you.
For example, if we are coaching a family moving to Rio then our trainer would be someone who has been through the move themselves and can give first-hand insight. Similarly if a manager needs coaching on how to remotely manage manufacturing staff in Brazil, their coach would be someone who has been there and done it.
Eye-opening Training Style
We want people who attend our courses to leave with their eyes wide open. We don't believe we can do this unless our training courses engage - this can only come when learning is relevant, fun and enriching.
- We guarantee relevance through a thorough needs analysis.
- We keep it fun by making it all about interactivity & self-exploration.
Our trainers are at the forefront of training and coaching developments and are constantly introducing and using new methods and techniques.
Whether you want a traditional group training course or an elaborate fantasy role-play, we deliver.
