Purpose: While International Networking week is a celebration of networking as an integral part of business success in all parts of the world, Global Network ATL, 6 February 2014, will provide a more focused observation of the event by providing practical information on how emerging growth businesses can move into international markets. The theme, “Expanding Your Global Network,” is supported by panel discussions on “Are You Ready to Be International?” and “Where In The World Is Right For You?” The theme will be explored through the perspective of the three networks important to any successful business: Information, Support, and Referral. We are pleased and honored to have Jim Beach, Speaker, Radio Host, Author, and Entrepreneurship Expert as our keynote speaker. Jim will set the stage for our panel discussions which will help attendees in identifying network needs and how to fill deficiencies in them.
The speakers and panel discussions will be available to international participants through live-stream video. Real-time translation will enable remote participants to hear the proceedings in their own language.
A social event will follow the panels, providing an opportunity to address development of the third network, Referral. GNATL will help create local and international connections that identify resources and lead to new business relationships. Not only local connections will be made; technology will enable real-time connections with business leaders in other countries. Our purpose is to create an event that raises awareness of global business connectivity that presents opportunities for businesses, regardless of size, with emphasis on educating participants while promoting sponsors and creating business connections for them.
