Global Is Good

by Doug Bruhnke 

“Global” doesn’t get the love that “local” does, but it should. Only 1 in 100 U.S. companies exports to global markets, where 85% of new business opportunities are. That means 99 out of 100 U.S. companies compete for only 15% of available opportunities. That results in only 12% of U.S. Gross Domestic Product being exports, whereas countries that embrace global and compete … [More]

Adapting Research & Development to the New World

by Maimun Mustafa 

Research & Development approaches as we’ve known them can no longer provide the needed results in today’s dynamic, “VUCA” (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) global business ecosystem.

Just Say NO to Networking

by Cesar Trabanco 

We don’t require members of Global Chamber to “network” in order to find new clients and resources. That can feel like a needle in a haystack adventure and isn’t productive unless it is designed properly. Networking can be useful for younger leaders as they build their networks, but should it be necessary for more experienced leaders? Not always.  The alternative? … [More]
