International Opportunities to
Grow Your Consulting Practice
By O Jay Murphy, President, TransGlobal Consulting, LLC

Thursday, December 10, Mimi's Café, Irvine, 7:00 to 9:00 a.m.

Regardless of your specialty, globalization presents opportunities to grow your consulting practice. These may be from the increasing number of small to medium-size companies taking steps to establish their presence abroad, or from foreign companies establishing their presence in the US market.

Import and export restrictions have eased and global communications have been made much easier by the Internet, but major challenges remain to international business, and there are still many pitfalls to avoid. The costs of violations in terms of monetary fines and jail terms for executives have increased since the tragedy of 9/11, and clients seeking to expand internationally must be aware not only of the opportunities, but also of the risks involved.

Join us at our December 10 IMC Orange County Breakfast as O. Jay Murphy, a specialist in export compliance, exposes us to the issues involved in international operations, and how we can profit from these as consultants. Topics covered will include:

  • How to find international opportunities
  • How to prove your expertise internationally
  • How to get paid and minimize your risk
  • The impact of culture on international relationships
  • Legal issues and hidden aspects of global competition
  • Labor and human resources issues
  • Payment and currency issues
  • Product compliance issues
  • Export rules and regulations
  • Political issues
  • And a lot more...

This will not only be an interactive learning experience, but also an opportunity for you to network with consultants and other self-employed professionals in the Greater Orange County area. Be prepared to share your experiences in international business.
