It may seem that the world has shrunk as offices have moved to living rooms and schools have moved to kitchen table, but the world of business is as global as ever. That said, businesses of all kinds have had to adapt to a “new normal” as the COVID-19 pandemic upends traditional business practices.
To help navigate and find success in these uncertain times, the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber, in partnership with the Middlesex Regional Chamber, presents a virtual Global Business Summit and networking event on Friday, July 17, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Cost: $40; $30 members. For information or to register visit www.princetonmercerchamber.org.
The online event features a keynote speech by Kimberlee S. Phelan, a partner at WithumSmith+Brown, and a case study discussion led by Suzanne Moyer of Nevo Technologies. Talks will be followed by breakout discussion rooms for networking and 30-second elevator pitches.
Topics of discussion will include how to get new customers; how has Google changed commerce; how to finance your operations; ley considerations when thinking about expanding internationally; the impacts of the global pandemic on world business; and case studies on success stories and mistakes.
