Since the advent of the World Trade Organization a decade ago barriers to international business have come crashing down. A best-seller by Thomas Friedman, declares the world is now “flat” – businesses are no longer restricted to or protected by geographical distance and national boundaries. Firms in Northern Ohio and elsewhere are faced with opportunities and threats that did not exist a decade ago. This breakfast draws on the experiences of local firms to explore these threats and opportunities and includes local senior managers who have been involved in establishing business operations in China and other countries.
The breakfast will identify
- Unexpected challenges and rewards of globalization;
- Strategies for international business and;
- How to resolve issues that arise when doing business globally.
