As technology advances, the physical presence of brands in different regions of the world has been reduced.
The digital landscape is not a universal one-size fits all. Customers in China will have different needs, likes, and interests than customers in Australia or Europe. How does a market like Australia compare to these overseas markets, and what are our strengths and weaknesses? Why is it still important to be on the ground in front of your customers on a global scale?
Tony Hughes, an entrepreneur, digital content expert, and Dealmaker for the UK Global Entrepreneur Program, has helped numerous businesses harness the potential of having a global presence by entering the UK market. Likewise, Chirryl-Lee Ryan, a design coach, thought-leader, and speaker, brings her experiences across three regions — Australia, Asia, and the US to explore how having a global footprint can assist in business success.
At our special in conversation event, Why Go Global? hear UK entrepreneur Tony Hughes and Design Coach and Leader Chirryl-Lee Ryan, discuss:
– Global innovation trends;
– Why it is important to have a presence in key global markets;
– The strengths of the Australian, UK, USA, and Asian markets
– Tony Hughes’ and Chirryl-Lee Ryan’s personal career journeys
– Growth and business opportunities in the UK and USA
