May. 27  GLOBAL PARADIGM SHIFT: IT WILL TAKE A VILLAGE

Webinar: An Expert Panel Discusses Strategies for Making the Shift. Panelists include: Scott Kotvis, Vice President, Global Business Development, Daubert Cromwell, LLC; David Kouidri, President, Polydec International, Inc.; Philip Pittsford, International Business Manager, Great Lakes Gelatin Co.; Zach Selch, Vice President, Global Sales, Pharmajet Corp.; Zachary S. Person (Moderator), Borderless Business Solutions. Covid-19 has fundamentally changed globalism as we knew it. International business will never be the same and exporters (and importers) must urgently navigate this global paradigm shift. There seem to be no concrete answers anywhere and everywhere lingers the question, “What do we do now?” The answer: Make new concrete! It takes a village to solve challenges like this. The good news is we don''t have to do it alone. The International Trade Association of Greater Chicago village is convening a Zoom roundtable of international business leaders to discuss: The unique challenges faced by US exporters, and New tips, trick and strategies to not just survive but thrive in the new global marketplace. 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. CDT. ITA/GC Members - $35; Non-members - $50.
