Lets talk business in any language 30 September 2011

ELIE participant Dina Rilean, CEO of Express Language Solutions, will deliver a presentation entitled “Let’s talk business – in any language” at a Barnardos Business Breakfast networking event in Chester.

Dina Railean is an experienced business and language professional with over 15 years of experience in the language industry, 8 of which at a senior corporate management level. She has been instrumental in successfully managing a number of language companies prior to establishing Express Language Solutions Ltd. In 2008 Dina was recognised by Salford City Council through its “Aspire to Enterprise” Award and successfully led ELS to the finals of the “Salford Business Awards 2009, 2010 and 2011”. Further, in 2010 Dina was nominated for the IoD Director of the Year Award. She was also recognised through the Salford Business Awards Competition for a new Social Enterprise, which is due to be launched in the near future.
Dina was previously involved in the former NWDA Ethnic Minority Business Forum as a Board Member and a BME Ambassador. Currently, Dina is a Business Language Champion and a regular speaker at schools and local universities actively promoting entrepreneurship to the younger generation.

As an international entrepreneur, Dina is well placed to comment on the barriers that immigrants can face when setting up a business in a foreign country. As the ELIE project has identified, these barriers can be institutional, financial, educational and social. However, through learning from the experiences of the entrepreneurs who have contributed to ELIE we will be able to help entrepreneurs of the future more easily overcome hurdles. Most appropriately to the themes of the ELIE project, Dina will discuss the issues surrounding language and culture when trading both locally and overseas during her presentation.

All funds raised through the event are used to support Barnardos, the UK’s leading children’s charity.

Friday 30 September 2011 - Meeting at 7.30am for open networking with breakfast served at 8am. The meeting will finish at 9.15am.
The Crowne Plaza Hotel
