The Intangibles of Doing Business Internationally
It’s not just finance, processes, export licenses and customs. Help your clients with the subtle and powerful aspects they may be missing.
Our featured speaker:
As a dual citizen of Switzerland and the United States,Valerie Berset-Price
has worked, over the past 20 years,for Swiss, Taiwanese, South African, Argentinean, Brazilian, and American employers, selling and purchasing products in the international arena, while managing Russian, Chinese and Indian sourcing agents. She has had the opportunity to experience, first-hand, what type of skills are needed to succeed internationally.
Consultants don’t have to be the international business expert for all their clients.But they need to recognize when international expertise is needed. Many companies engage in an "international strategy” that is nothing more than projecting their current language, culture and processes into a different geography. Simple, right?
Hear about case examples of successful as well as hopelessly naïve approaches to working with international clients, some that located in Portland as well as clients located overseas.
Valerie’s firm provides corporate training through a trademarked program, "Professional Passport™: Work Anywhere with Confidence". The series of 16 specialized classes tackles international business from four necessary angles to enable troubleshooting and solutions for companies that encounter problems while engaged in international transactions.
