OTTAWA, Ontario, Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TalktoCanada, the company trusted by Ernst & Young, Novartis and Saudi Telecom for English language training, has re-adjusted its sales forecast for 2011, crediting a global increase of demand for its English learning services.
In today's press call, CEO Marc Anderson discussed the evolution of "insourcing," the opposite of shipping jobs overseas, and how TalktoCanada has created new jobs for language teachers in Canada by providing online English courses to students in other countries.
"Capitalizing on the explosive growth of high speed Internet and Skype-accounts around the world, a local business such as TalktoCanada is able to establish a global footprint and bring English training online done by Canadian native English speakers to students in remote locations around the world," says Marc Anderson.
In today's economy, many North American businesses are struggling to survive. By looking overseas, TalktoCanada stands better positioned against local recessions, and less dependent on one specific country.
"Since the start in 2006, TalktoCanada has perfected its geographically independent business model and is learning to make use of the Internet in new ways. At the same time, we are creating new teaching and technical jobs here in Canada. That is insourcing in a nutshell," says Marc Anderson.
In his closing remarks, Marc Anderson emphasized: "Today we are able to employ teachers and use Skype to teach students in Asia, Europe and the Middle East at 24-hour availability. If a language training company from Canada can build a global customer base that includes international companies such as Ernst & Young, Novartis and Saudi Telecom in just 5 years, imagine the possibilities."
TalktoCanada.com was founded in 2006 and credits its success in online English language training to the global acceptance of communication tools such as Skype and WebEx.
