So sayeth Sarah, “I sat on the discussion panel on Monday night for the EU Executive Training Programme (ETP) reception for participants going out to do business internships in Japan and South Korea.

Lots of participants from very interesting companies all over EU-not many UK participants. This is a fantastic opportunity to actually get Japan/Korean business skills and contacts and intensive language training. Seems like a great opportunity for ex-JETs who are now working within a company wanting to further their Japan experiences.”
