Keeping the traditions for personnel training and uniting, the international team of the translation agency Baltic Media Ltd this time met in the capital of Lithuania – Vilnius.

The seminar was held in the conference facilities of the hotel Best Western and during the training the theories proposed by David Freementle in his book Active Client Service were looked at and compared with our practise. This training also provided a great opportunity to get to know our newest team members: Vilnius Branch Manager Armands Kociņš, Estonia Branch Manager Hedvig Veelma and Valmiera Branch Manager Evita Vītola.


Marketing Director of Baltic Media Ltd Kaspars Zverģis admits: “We are very glad that during the time of crisis we have not only stabilized our business, but also developed the range of our services, expanded the network of our offices and added to our team three new, cheerful and, most importantly, competent employees.”

The seminar turned into a successful team-building event.

* How to effectively manage multilingual projects;
* Effective methods of stress management;
* How to develop and maintain relationship with a customer so that he becomes a regular and loyal customer;

Practical skills were improved during the video practise "Active and powerful customer service".
The seminar was highly evaluated by the participants themselves.
 
Jevgenija Lazuta, Senior Project Manager, "I'm so delighted that I had a chance to participate in the seminar and would like to point out its warm and friendly atmosphere."
 
Sandra Veinberga, Personnel Training Project Manager stressed, "Now we are even better armed to help customers with all their language and communication problems."
 
The word "armed" was meant both figuratively and in its direct meaning as the staff of Baltic Media had their picture taken in the museum of tanks, which is located at the seminar venue, with the WWII armoured military vehicles both Soviet and American on the background.
 
 
Baltic Media Team-Building in Majori
 
From 27 to 29 October 2006 the autumn seminar of the Baltic Media staff was held in Jūrmala, Hotel Majori, which not only provided an opportunity for the perfection of knowledge and improvement of practical skills but also contributed to the new team unification.
 
The seminar was devoted to logic of persuasion and presentation theory and skills as well as the sales and customer service.
 
How to be a persuasive speaker 
Theoretical and practical workshops about presentation and communication skills were given by Doctor of Philology Sandra Veinberga who has educated quite a number of leading companies and politicians of Latvia on the same issues. The public image, correctness and vulgarity, provincial naivety and politically correct etiquette, uniform and the person, oppression of individuality; the way how to sit, stand, walk, greet, part and show attention 
- are only some form the whole range of covered topics. 
 
Presentation skills were practised in workshops, videotaped and analyzed for the seminar participants to achieve apparent success in their art of persuasion. 
 
The second day came with individual presentations and live discussions based on critical analysis of David Freemantle’s book THE BUZZ: 50 Little Things that Make a Big Dirrerence to World-Class Customer Service. .. 
 
How to communicate in diverse cultural environment 
Communication with customers proved to be surprisingly different in terms of manners, style and behaviour not only in Europe and the North America but also in Riga and Daugavpils. 
 
We can surely say that the staff of Baltic Media are much more persuasive now both with customers and in front of a camera as well as they know how to better save customers' time, maintain contacts and be kind, responsive and smiling also in stressful and busy situations but above all have learned more about each other in informal surroundings. 
 
Ieva Krastiņa, the Commercial Director says, “In my opinion not only we gained new knowledge and refreshed the existing but the largest benefit was ideas and getting to know the colleagues. I was surprised to learn that my colleagues are so positive!”
