As the result of skillful dodging and swerving to avoid all the rocks in your company’s path, you have emerged as a lean and mean, business machine. While older, larger firms are still shedding staff and services to get down to fighting weight, nimbleness has put your company in a position of growth; upsizing to meet the needs of an expanding customer base and to take advantage of timely opportunities.
Now is not the time to be unfocused or non-strategic about your next steps. Issues such as expanded sales and marketing activity, key employee search, training and retention, and ensuring your company continues to project a strong brand reputation, are critical considerations.
This Forum aims to help local and regional SME’s grow their companies to the next level. This event assembles experienced professionals who can provide practical solutions and tool to promote growth, along with business owners who have been or are currently faced with many of the same concerns and opportunities as you are.
Hosted by the AmCham Entrepreneurs/SME Committee
Invitation by Elizabeth L Thomson, Founder and President of ICS TRUST (ASIA) LIMITED
