Research & Development or Emerging Markets research work:

Local Market Participation Support

Market Research work

Using our language and cultural competencies and pronounced familiarity with the market you wish to enter and its various segments, we can help you evaluate the commercial viability of your products, assist you in drawing up a marketing plan, and advise you on the optimal channels of distribution.

Evaluating Commercial Viability

To see if you can profit from delivering your product to any given local market, we can help you by coordinating market research through interviews and focus groups. We can also draw on a substantial body of experience we have accumulated over more than 20 years. By fusing our intuitive understanding of local customers' requirements with rigorous analytical research, we are in a prime position to advise you on viability and feasibility.

Marketing Plan

If you have decided to supply the local market, you will find that market segments and their requirements often differ substantially from their western counterparts. We can supply you with the insights and intelligence that allow you to optimally tailor your product and message to capture the interest of these different segments. We can also advise you on the ideal methods of communicating this message in an effective and profitable manner.

Product Development and Customization

We can help you develop new products and services that meet the demands from customers you wish to attract, and to adapt existing products and services to ensure both compliance and commercial success.

Government Assigned Policy-Making Related Research Work Assistance:

Governments are continually reviewing their national infrastructure, and as this requires extensive research work internally and overseas, we work proactively to help government-assigned researchers in their endeavours. We have assisted many governmental policy units in their interviews for current initiatives. This research involves collating documentary and spoken evidence, as well as interview transcription and drafting/rewriting of official correspondence.

Training for Business Protocol and Etiquette:

We are able to assist with the familiarisation of cultural and procedural necessities when first visiting a country such as China or Japan.

For example, in Japanese culture, there are more established hierarchical structures compared to that of the competition within England or the USA. This would mean that when even a team of people, for example, junior management employees, often are familiar with each other they must be deferential to the Japanese counterparts.

One of the most important and yet understated aspects is the protocol between colleagues on both a professional and social level; for instance going out for an evening meal or playing a round of golf. These interactions can often lead to misunderstanding and distress for both business sides. We appreciate these cultural differences and provide coaching sessions and role-play (if necessary) to enhance and facilitate all interpersonal exchanges.

Introduction to Translation and Interpreting

For those who have a good command of foreign languages, we are introducing training and coaching services for people who are interested in using their time to gain hard experience in both translation and interpreting. After initial assessment/introduction, a decision will be made regarding progression forward.

We anticipate this will be of particular interest to those who are spending an extended period of time in the UK. For instance, if you are a post doctoral student, a specialist engineer, scientist, medic or researcher, we think this may be of interest.

If you think you have the language skill, but not necessarily the academic prowess, we are still interested, so why not drop us a line!
