The golf tournament will be played in a scramble format, allowing players of all levels to compete and have a good time and giving every team the opportunity to shoot that desired low score! You may enter as a 4-person team or individual player to be matched up with a team. The nature of this tournament is to meet new people, get acquainted and have a good time out on a beautiful golf course, which in the end will hopefully result in good business relationships.

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.
