Business leaders, financiers, fund managers and venture capitalists around the world have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of successful transactions on a global scale, turning opportunities into profitable win/win business deals.

Even the most experienced, well-traveled business professionals find it difficult to navigate international deals when unique customs, cultures and foreign language become barriers to agreements.
