As the year starts, there is plenty of global opportunity, and uncertainty. What can we expect, and what are tips to navigate the challenges and opportunities?
On January 25th, Patty interviews two global executives who will assess the global business outlook in 2017 from their perspectives, and hopefully provide some ideas for you to grow your business a little easier in 2017.
