Thank you to those of you who attended our European Networking event. It was a really well attended event and it was great to see so many of our members.

How to Be Culturally Savvy in Global Business
Join us for networking and a program by Christian Höferle from the Culture Mastery fo llowed by a panel discussion.

A global mindset is a key business skill. It is just as relevant to your bottom line as the so-called “hard skills.” Let’s make the business case for cultural competence: When companies embrace a global mindset they get better results. Learn how to build a culture-savvy organization by developing culturally intelligent employees. After all, it’s not the company that’s global, it’s your people! 

We thank the law offices of Burr & Forman LLP for hosting this event.
