"How to Eat an Elephant:
Essential Concepts for Entering Global Markets"

The Association Welcomes Zach Person of the
International Trade Center at the College of Dupage


Most of us are familiar with the answer to the classic question, "How do you eat an elephant?": "One bite at a time . . ." Please join us for our October dinner meeting, at which our guest speaker will apply that principle to the challenges of global market-entry, presenting."Essential Concepts for Entering Global Markets."
We are pleased to welcome as our speaker Zachary Person, the Program Manager for the International Trade Center, based at the College of DuPage in Lisle, IL.  Mr. Person has a wealth of experience in market-development strategy and execution and will share with SLWTA's members and guests his insights into the essential best practices for expanding your business into international markets.  
Prior to joining COD's ITC, Mr. Person spent more than a decade in global advisory and executive roles, including strategic planning, brand building, product management, eCommerce, website/content development, sales, marketing, global distributor development and management.  He has experience building markets such as Europe, North America, Asia, Middle East and Latin America. He has built multinational distribution/reseller channels and has managed these global networks using various techniques in training, incentivizing, B2B/B2C/B2B2C marketing & brand-building.  Finally, Mr. Person has lived, studied and worked in Europe and speaks fluent German.
Do you know a business professional in the Stateline area who could benefit from this event, and from the contacts and other programming the SLWTA offers?  If so, this event is a great way to acquaint them with the SLWTA, so please pass this invitation along to them and encourage them to attend. There's no obligation to join, and all are welcome!
