The OWIT Virtual Chapter presents its latest virtual member highlight and discussion event! This month, our discussion will focus on expanding your global network. How can you add value or access resources in your international business activities? What are some considerations when going global? After our featured members speak, we’ll ask participants to introduce themselves, discuss some of the resources they tap into for their international business needs and questions, and touch on how they bring value to global trade. We hope that this event allows participants to network, make connections, and expand their own global networks! This event is free to current OWIT members.
