Are you interested in an excellent opportunity to learn more about selling your products and/or services into Brazil? How would you like to collect the real-time market research without ever setting foot on a plane? Participants in this webinar will be given a low cost opportunity to see what opportunities exist for their companies and educational institutions in the English language education sector in Brazil. This opportunity is for businesses selling products/services/franchises to help teach the English Language. While it is not aimed at ESL programs that are conducted in the states, there will likely be opportuntities for those that provide curriculum or possibly "teaching the teacher".

The cost to participate is $75, which is a fraction of the cost of traveling to Brazil to do research. Deadline for registering is April 8, 2013 (note: may sell out earlier).
