On Friday, September 28th. I was privileged to serve as the lead panelist at The Focus on Indonesia Conference, sponsored and held at Indiana University (IU) Bloomington, and by IU Kelley School of Business, and both, IU Institute for International Business and Center for International Business Education Research (CIBER).
I serve on both, Board of Advisors. I spoke on best practices, 'Doing Business In and With Indonesia'. I gave a "Big Shout-out" to Governor Eric Holcomb, former Governors of Indiana, Jim Schellinger, Secretary of Commerce, and Mayors of Indianapolis - and to ALL of you for the 'outstanding' work that has been accomplished, thus far!
There is much more challenging and complex trade work yet to be done, if we are to build Indiana into the "Trade Hub of America." Don't you agree?
Hoosier SMEs need to be brought to the "Global Trade Table" in much, much, more greater numbers and also, learn more about Free Trade Agreements. As SME global strategist and advisors. I, as a highly-skilled professional speaker, inspirational communicator, and an expert SME trade practitioner with a killer-success rate at facilitating and closing cross-border deals, and unlocking profitable trade channels, can help make that happen.
Our respected SME leadership, global business diplomacy, and proven advocacy for the successful passage of 80% of U.S. Free Trade Agreements... has withstood the test of time.
The Conference was a big success. We've already been personally invited by The Honorable Indonesia Consul General Rosmalawati Chalid of Chicago, Nurhaida, Vice Chairman of Indonesia Financial Services Authority, and Shoeb Kagda, Founder and CEO, Indonesia Economic Forum (both based in Jakarta), to enter into strategic partnerships.
