Challenges of Doing Business with Large Corporations: A Masterclass with GlobalScot John Fox

The prospect of working with a large organisation can be a somewhat daunting prospect.  It brings a whole new set of questions, paperwork, considerations and regulations.  It’s also an exciting opportunity for your company to grow and develop in both existing and potentially new markets.

This masterclass on the ‘Challenges of Doing Business with Large Corporations’ draws on John’s insight of the culture of large US headquartered corporations from the perspective of the insider. If you are interested in ideas of how to differentiate your offering to US based business or how to navigate large corporate culture please join us on Wednesday 6th February at 10am at the Scottish Enterprise offices in Edinburgh.
