The vision of Business Beyond Borders is to inspire attendees to look beyond their national borders and take the leap into doing international business. We believe the best way to do that is to show them which are some key issues that they need to take note of and give them resources to begin their journey of discovery.
One of the most exciting parts of doing business internationally is travelling the world to meet your new business partners and getting to know their country. That’s a bit harder than usual in 2020 for obvious reasons so this event will be held online over a week. Attendees can sit comfortably in a location of their choice and watch experts in a variety of fields be interviewed on a topic within their expertise. Each day there will be a maximum of two longer interviews, plus a couple of shorter sections which we are calling „Windows on the World“.
The event will be live online from November 30th to December 4th. But as all of the interviews are recorded attendees have the option to get unlimited access to the recordings after the event closes.
Get the VIP Package and you'll not only secure unlimited access to the interview recordings, but you will also benefit from additional resources the experts are sharing.
The audience will consist of entrepreneurs and small business owners with little or no experience in offering their products or services to an international audience. They want to learn how to get started thinking internationally and which pitfalls they should avoid, whilst at the same time opening themselves up for new opportunities, generating new revenue streams and becoming part of a thriving global marketplace. They know that operating internationally can spread their risk and bring increased turnover, but they aren’t sure how to get started and “don’t know, what they don’t know”.
The speakers are experts in a range of international business issues, such as tax and legal regulations, international sales and marketing, as well as leaders in localisation. They’ll be interviewed about their subject matter expertise, whether that’s in products or services. In addition there will be short “Windows on the World” where speakers from a variety of international backgrounds give compact insights into what makes their home market unique.
This is not a „normal“ Summit where we are throwing out a lot of interviews over multiple days to cover as many topics as humanly possible. Instead we deliberately designed a smaller „boutique-style“ event as our focus is not on getting a huge number of speakers with a big following, but more on getting a few high quality experts that are sharing valuable practical information for a small selected audience.
Our intention is to reach businesses and service professionals that are thinking of expanding their markets beyond their own country, but are not sure how to start and what they need to pay attention to exactly. We have also partnered with a few universities who will recommend the event to their students in International Business, so they get some practical insights beyond the theory.
