Global Business Series: International Dimensions of Strong Corporate Cultures

Studies consistently show that the most engaged and innovative organizations, whether in the United States or elsewhere, tend to be the most successful. What do the cultures of these companies have in common? This presentation provides five foundational keys to a strong business culture and provide ways to bring these attributes to your own businesses. These keys include:

  • Connect
  • Develop
  • Discover
  • Collaborate
  • Transform

A strong, articulated culture allows you to clearly align how you do business with partners and clients no matter where they are located. It gives a clear path to mutually beneficial understandings on day-to-day interactions. By having a clear vision of “how we do things,” we can more effectively bridge and overcome differences at all levels.

Come to learn, share, and connect with the amazing Austin international community. Let’s each increase our effectiveness in creating successful international businesses that positively impact the world.


This is a brown bag lunch and learn series.  PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR LUNCH.
