Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 14, 2009
It is time for U.S. businesses to take the next step internationally, through the development of a winning expansion strategy - a rational approach that eliminates surprises and gets it right the first time. After all, there is no challenge too great for a country that has proven itself over and over again. So, let's start the journey.
Need an antidote for shrinking domestic markets? Consider international expansion. It offers unparalleled opportunity for growth, increased sales, diversified markets and increased profit for successful businesses. Unfortunately, U.S. manufacturers gaze with trepidation at the process and surrender to fear before making an earnest effort. The main problem is simply a mindset, which contributes to a lack of experience, talent and confidence on behalf of U.S. manufacturers to navigate emerging global markets. Other, smaller countries around the world, however, have operated globally with success for generations.
Each company should be able to determine the following:
What is going to change and what's needed?
How to go about it?
Who should attend?
CEO's, COO's, CFO's of manufacturing and service companies
VP's of business development
VP's of international strategy
