Business Spanish

Five guest speakers from our local community came and spoke to our Business Spanish class in the Fall 2018. Henry Yaeger (Managing Principal (Banner Group - Lancaster, PA)) and Yesenia Blanco (Women's Business Center Program Manager (ASSETS - Lancaster, PA)) were among them. The conversations focused on a variety of topics ranging from general Business practices to culture to the local Hispanic/Latino community and their businesses. Students reflected on their conversations with the speakers and how the new information they learned could impact their future personal lives and professional careers.
