Daniel Barnes (French & International Business, 2011)

Daniel Barnes (French & International Business, 2011)

Daniel graduated from French & International Business which gave him the foundation to start building a successful career.

Daniel was offered his job as a direct result of one of his final year modules, 'Working With Languages'. He said: "We worked in groups to solve a problem each business had, for example looking to launch in a new foreign market. My team worked with Principle Healthcare who subsequently offered me a job straight after I graduated."

 

Daniel is now working as Project Executive at Principle Healthcare International. He said: "In terms of my languages, I speak with or email French speaking customers on a daily basis. Attending trade shows and exhibitions also gives me the opportunity to practice my languages in real world situations. I have recently been on business trips to France and Switzerland. Business development is another aspect; I work with the International Director to drive business in Asia, but my main focus is on French speaking countries. Developing business leads to create new trading accounts for Principle Healthcare."
