Practical Lessons For Businesses     Entering the Global Marketplace       Webinar Series

6 Sessions | March - April

12:00 - 1:00 pm EST

A collection of World Trade Center offices are presenting a six-part webinar series designed to expose executives and staff from growing companies in key aspects of global business. Offered once per week in one-hour modules that build upon the previous week’s training, the participant will gain an understanding of fundamental principles, experiences to be expected, and questions to be considered when looking at either selling product or sourcing components from foreign markets. All without having to leave the office.

Leading the series are two practitioners who have a depth of experience in leading market penetration and global sourcing efforts for companies of all sizes. Mr. Anthony Russo is a seasoned import / export professional who ran trade services for the World Trade Center South Carolina Charleston, as well as the World Trade Centers Association. He is currently president of TradeHub International, a firm specializing in helping US companies source and sell products around the globe. Mr. Christian Bartley is the managing partner of the global strategy firm Faleiro, and in this capacity has been the CEO of the World Trade Center Wisconsin for 10 years. Both Russo and Bartley have helped companies establish supply chains, joint ventures, sales and management operations in India, China, SE Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America.
