Going Global in an Uncertain Market--A leap frog approach

The Greater New England Minority Supplier Development Council will host its annual Business Opportunity Expo October 3-5, 2011. Guest speakers include Korean global business expert Don Southerton.

Denver, Sep 27, 2011 -- The Greater New England Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (GNEMSDC) will be hosting its annual Business Opportunity Expo at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods. This year along with a number of distinguished speakers Bridging Culture Worldwide CEO Don Southerton will share insights into Korean global business, and how GNEMSDC members can model recent successes by Korea Groups like Hyundai-Kia Motors and Samsung Electronics.

Southerton notes, "Like a number of Korea-based companies, Minority-owned business (MBE) owners can look for new opportunities to grow their organizations even in rough economic times. This includes expanding their operations outside the U.S." Korean global consultant Southerton suggests taking a bold "leap frog" approach to spur ahead of the competition. 

GNEMSDC's Business Opportunity Expo is the largest minority business development conference and trade show in New England. The show brings together buyers and supplier diversity professionals from over 200 corporate members of the GNEMSDC and over 400 certified MBEs from around the country. This year the event features seminars and corporate CEO speakers who will inspire and identify opportunities for MBEs.
