October International SIG Breakfast Meeting
This meeting is organized by Elizabeth Glynn (contact information below). We think this will provide a great start to how globally-focused IMC consultants can identify opportunities and potentially expand their reach in the globally-focused business community. GUESTS ARE WELCOME, AS WELL.
