Winning Globally – Determining When to Take Your Company International

Date: Thursday, May 28, 2015
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Every week you hear about organizations like yours that have taken the plunge and expanded overseas. But your investors, board and advisors may be giving you conflicting advice — some may be pushing for aggressive international expansion, while others are cautioning you to stick closer to home. How do you know, then, when it really is the right time to go global?

Done right, international expansion can lead to sustainable growth and ensure the long term success of a company. Conversely, moving into the wrong market at the wrong time can not only derail growth, it can lead to a company's demise. When considering international expansion, preparation is key.

Join us as renowned international business expert Larry Harding, Vice Chairman and Executive Director of Radius and author of Winning Globally, offers his insights and expertise in international expansion theory and practice. We’ll discuss:

  • Steps companies should take to truly prepare for international expansion
  • The right questions to consider for international budgeting processes
  • Insights into little-known tax, compliance and legal issues which can sidetrack your expansion plans
  • Human resource considerations, local hires versus expats
  • Details to focus on at the onset to avoid costly problems downstream
After attending this event you will be able to:
Identify indicators the time may be right for international expansion
Recognize surprising changes in economic growth, personal wealth, business receptivity and regulations
Identify realistic time estimates for Planning and Setting up in a New Country
Recognize expenses to consider When Budgeting for Overseas Expansion
