International planner means business as usual in a world full of holidays
HOUSTON -- Rebecca Noel wasn't planning on creating an international
calendar, she just wanted to cash a check.
"Back in the late 80s, I took a vacation to the UK," said Noel.
"Unfortunately, I went during a week that had two bank holidays in it
and all of the banks were closed. At that time there were no ATMs and
credit cards were only being used by restaurants and shops in the
larger cities such as London."
With no way of knowing about the holidays until she arrived, Noel was
stuck without cash. The idea for a calendar that listed all the major
holidays of the world didn't hit Noel until the trip was over and she
was back home in the states.
"A client asked us to design a promotional product that was not a hat,
cap or pencil. I suggested that we take a traditional desk planner and
incorporate international holidays for countries worldwide plus add
some of their marketing information from their company brochures. It
was an aha moment."
With that idea, Noel, a salesperson, used her experience abroad as
inspiration for a daily planner that was in a class by itself.
Featuring all government and religious holidays celebrated by every
country in the world, A Global World's calendar, named the
International Date Planner, has become the go-to product for
international business. The calendar is the result of extensive

international businessperson. Holidays are listed both by country and
by day of the week. Conversion tables, time change charts, and
international area codes listed within the planner help keep important
travel information all in one place. A Global World's products have
expanded to include a downloadable desktop international holiday
calendar for the computer and a full color wall calendar will be
"Whether our customers travel overseas or cruise around the world
through their computer, to be able to effectively conduct
international business is essential," said Noel.
For companies looking for an innovative and useful promotional
product, A Global World often customizes planners to bear a company's
logo or color scheme and can include important company information. As
clients use the planner to record important dates, they're constantly
reminded of the business from where the calendar came. from. Unlike a baseball cap
or a pencil, a well-used daily planner often becomes as important as a
cell phone during the business day.
Rosetta Stone, a company that specializes in foreign language learning
software, felt believes the calendar was is a natural fit to promote their
business's international and multi-cultural focus. "This is one of the
best products that I have ever used," said Rosetta Stone's John
Meyers. "It is a great help when traveling or just making phone
So whether it's a client meeting that's sidelined by Greenery Day in
Japan, or remembering a Russian colleague on International Women's
Day, having A Global World's international calendar at hand can help
make the world a little smaller.
