A ‘gap’—that’s what motivated Brent Barnes to establish Globus in 1992 in Tokyo, Japan. Brent noticed the ‘gap’ between the needs of the clients and what was being provided by existing training courses, in terms of:


After booking an email writing seminar at Bank of America Tokyo, we needed texts that could match the client needs—unfortunately, the available books didn’t do this. So, Brent, together with Jack Nicklin, started creating Globus original content. Fast forward to today, and now the ‘Globus Library’ consists of over 20 custom-designed communication texts.


Running courses like a classroom produces graduates—not business people! So, we decided to run our sessions more like real business. Instead of us doing the lecturing, we had them learn by doing it themselves first, then coaching them on their Strengths and Weaknesses.


The last piece of the puzzle was finding people who could train and speak Business—not just English. So we have developed a strict selection process, and we strive to continuously improve our solid team which is made up of trainers who can coach, and coaches who can train!
