How are we doing with international business in the Phoenix Metro? We don't just talk about it, we grade it and put a report card together. This year we're pleased to announce that the official report card grader is Rob Millar of City of Scottsdale!
Join business and community leaders to share open and honest views at this Global Chamber® signature event, all about international business, culture, education and more.
Sponsors Cresa, Spencer Fane, Harvard Group International and Bank of America. Thank you all!
Check out last year's event HERE. And in 2018 we featured then future-Mayor Gallego's FIRST public discussion of international business plans and strategies. She was amazing back then, too! More HERE. Questions? Contact Doug Bruhnke or Mike Langley
