At the French Cultural Center Get Directions
In today's hyper-connected and globalized world, businesses are more integrated than ever before. The lines between company nationality are blurred, as are the pros and cons to globalization as the status quo.
For our third and final round table, we will discuss the challenges presented by globalization, especially in the context of French-American business. Specifically, what are the differences and similarities between our working cultures, corporate settings, and ability to thrive in each other's nations?
Dr. Jean-Luc Boulnois, CEO of Quadrature, Executive Chairman of Microline Surgical and Dr. Guy Vernet, CEO of The BioMérieux Foundation will join us to discuss this topic.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Jennifer Schunemann, President of JCS Consulting and Founder and Past President of The Goodwin Group International.
