Hi!
over on the Japan forum there's a guy called Keith who reckons he and his friends were getting (unless i've made a bad mistake with exchange rates) something like 10,000 euros a day in Germany, recently. Far as I can gather this was for high-level, specialised business English, negotiation skills, cultural differences, that kind of thing. Does this sound accurate to you guys? If so, I'm in the wrong country. Would be nice to know.
Thanks
fion

I reckon you made a mistake in your currency conversion. 1000 Euros is likely, 10 000 per day is dreaming.

I agree with Showem, except that it's possible, not likely.

You need a very good reputation or excellent marketing to earn that kind of money, even in a rich place like Germany, and not many people have it.

Lambsdorff, a colleague told me, used to speak for DM 2.000 a throw*, and he was exceptionally well-connected in business and politics (he was economics minister, and on the boards of about 20 large companies). Admittedly, that was a long time ago, but the notion that an English teacher could rise to such levels is.... well, unlikely.

*DM 2.000 is a few cents less than 1.000

I doubt Lambsdorff was speaking for an entire day. More like a couple of hours.

Last intensive course I taught 2 years ago was 800 per day for 4 days, for 4 participants. Nothing unlikely about it, lots of companies charge more than I do. Remember, this isn't individuals paying, it's businesses paying for a specialized training course.

You're right about Lambsdorff, Showem - to get him for a whole day would (have) cost a lot more.

But $800 a day? Sounds a lot to me - looks you're onto something good! Smile

(...but I still don't think many can earn that kind of money, unless they're specialists themselves, of course, which puts them in a different category)

Over on the Japan forum I was talking about training I did for T-Com. It was 600 a day plus travel and expenses (i.e. 800). It wasn't for English though, it was for Business Skills Training in English; presentations, negotiations, technical writng, and stuff like that.
