October 31, 2017
Last week, Tiffany Hill and Flora Hoffman attended the GetGlobal 2017 Conference held in Los Angeles. GetGlobal featured global business executives, former U.S. diplomats, governmental and NGO personnel and industry experts to discuss the challenges and success stories of international expansion. Keynote speakers included Noel Lee, Founder and CEO of Monster Products, Noel Massey, President of UPS, and Ambassador Thomas Pickering, Vice Chair at Hills & Co., former US Ambassador to the U.N. and former Boeing executive.
“The discussions surrounding the uncertainty of international expansion, caused by the current government’s tendency to un-do prior international agreements such as the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) and NAFTA, whether involving taxes and tariffs, logistics or finding the right personnel on the ground, most resonated with me,” says WSM Attorney Flora Hoffman.
