Hello, my name is Elizabeth and I am the International Partnership Executive at SVM Global, the leading reseller of gift cards in the B2B space. My responsibilities involve looking after existing partnerships and forming new relationships with international retailers that offer B2B gift card programs. The work is incredibly rewarding but also sometimes challenging; there are many considerations to take into account when working internationally. Foreign languages and cultural differences, International Retail is rarely simple or straightforward, hence why I enjoy it!
In my role I concentrate on our European retailers, strengthening partnerships and seeking out new opportunities. There is never a dull moment, one moment I’m conversing in Norwegian about volumes of purchase, the next I’m explaining a proposal in shaky (but enthusiastic!) French. I speak Swedish and Norwegian fluently in addition to English, and have a working knowledge of Danish, French, German and Japanese. Having a broad range of languages enables me to approach retailers at their level, to form long lasting relationships that will benefit everyone. Here at SVM Global we pride ourselves on working hard to understand the different needs of our international retailers, and I’m thankful I have the opportunity to contribute to the stunning work SVM Global’s retail team undertakes every day.
Recently I had the opportunity to travel to the Netherlands, where I would meet with some of our existing partners and also gain a more in-depth understanding of the business culture and country as a whole. This opportunity was made possible by Business Sheffield and the hard work of the Netherlands Business Support Office. Many thanks to both for offering me this amazing experience.
I hope you enjoy the vlog I put together to share this journey with you. The Netherlands is a beautiful country and I hope to revisit one day. Tot de volgende keer!
