We are very excited to share the news that our Executive Partner Jeff Jorge has been invited by Michigan’s largest technology association – Automation Alley – to speak at its upcoming conference: “Doing Business in Brazil: Latin America’s Engine of Growth,” on February 2nd, 2012.
Jeff, a native of Brazil, brings first-hand knowledge of the culture, business climate and strategic market entry to the conference. This knowledge – coupled with GDP’s experience in providing turnkey global market development support – will be the basis of a very informative talk. Here is just a snapshot of topics that Jeff will address:
- Cultural differences that affect how business is conducted
- Modes of entry and which are the most suitable relative to revenue upside, market control, complexity and investment
- Bridging the cultural and business gaps in order to gain commercial traction and growth in the region
Along with Jeff , trade experts from the U.S. Commercial Services Department will be on-site as well as telecasting in from the Embassy in Brazil. Together these experts will have a more targeted discussion on their respective areas, plus provide analysis of the some of the leading sector for U.S. Exports.
If you happen to be in the metro-Detroit area on February 2nd, we invite you to join us at the event. More detailed information about agenda and registration can be found directly on the Automation Alley website here.
