Recognizing the importance and further potential of Brazil, the panelists will review their own experience entering that market. We’ll share our insights on the strategic considerations that guided our entry and the lessons of our actual experience. Read more
Sharing one’s business experience with global peers is an invaluable opportunity and I am fortunate to have been invited by the International Executives Resources Group (IERG), a private network of international, senior executives, to give a talk on doing JVs in the Emerging Markets. Diego Tebaldi, Boston Chapter President, has asked me to discuss the challenges and opportunities of implementing JVs, as part of IERG’s Going Global Series. I am looking forward to an engaging session…
IERG was founded in 1997 in New York City, and its membership base has grown to more than 500 members across the world. Its chapters meet regularly in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Florida, Texas, California and China. Its members primarily include CEOs, COOs, Presidents, among others, and have broad, domestic and global experience.
They regularly meet, both in-person and online, to share their knowledge, best practices and to support and advance each others’ careers and interests. More specifically, they meet to:
- Interact with practiced internationalists who share interests and goals
- Pursue new prospects in business and careers and to broaden existing opportunities
- Obtain first-hand information about markets, issues, procedures, etc.
- Build a solid foundation of continuously updated global business knowledge
- Develop professional and social ties with dynamic businessmen and women
