Topic: "If It Is Tuesday, We are not in Brussels Anymore"
Summary: Times have changed and many of the old assumptions about international business no longer apply. Today many of executive overseas have studied in the US and/or worked there. For businesses looking to go international through establishing foreign subsidiaries, joint ventures and acquisitions this talk deals with what are the potential issues you can expect and how they can affect the venture's success. Marc's work across five continents and having done deal in over 30 countries, provides the background for this presentation. Internationally, you need to understand the countries' history, culture and how their legal system can impact the deal. In addition, the key is understanding why you bought them and how that fits with their culture.
