It’s been nearly a decade since Thomas Friedman declared that the world was flat, and with the advances in commerce and communications technology in this time, it could be argued that the world is now flatter than ever.
At this Boardroom Briefing, Jimmi Bradbury will discuss how startups and growing businesses can best position themselves to take advantage of the vast international opportunities.
Jimmi will outline various strategies for gaining footholds in international markets including joint ventures, alliances, organic growth, mergers and acquisitions.
He will also discuss how the act of doing business changes in an international context, and the research you should conduct to ensure you are putting your best foot forward with your international customers, suppliers and partners.
This will be an invaluable session for any business looking at opportunities in international markets.
