Global Leaders Speaker Series Businesses now operate in a global marketplace. Learn best practices for your international business from experienced global business and thought leaders.

About the Series

Wisconsin companies sell to customers and rely on suppliers in China, Southeast Asia, EU, South America and Africa. They need to understand how to navigate complicated and evolving business practices, international laws, customs and regulations, which can vary from country to country. This speaker series will provide the Wisconsin business community with the opportunity to learn from experienced international business leaders, and the agencies that regulate them.
