Seminar overview
This one-day seminar concentrates on outlining corporate cross-cultural communications strategies, and ways of preparing them, that work in today’s fast-changing world of global commerce. The seminar will emphasize how to identify, and subsequently exploit, the tangible and intangible factors that make your product saleable to foreign markets. Special attention is also paid to the increasingly significant role of digital media and marketing in not only selling products but also in creating and maintaining brand identification and customer loyalty. Specific examples of successful and unsuccessful approaches are provided, as are examples of real tactics that can be put into practice in your business right away.
