Alison Larson (pictured), founder of World Blazer Consulting, knows how to sell a brand successfully overseas. The proof lies in the history of her professional career. She spent more than 23 years developing global business for such esteemed companies as Carter’s and OshKosh B’Gosh.
During Alison’s September WEGG webinar “8 Critical Lessons to Ensure a Successful International Product Launch,” we had three questions asked by attendees that were not addressed due to time constraints. They are as follows:
- Should an attorney or an experienced businessperson or consultant negotiate contract terms with a prospective international partner?
- What is the difference between a “simple” country and a “complex” country when it comes to doing international business?
- What is the best way to approach a prospective distributor or other international representative if you want to do business with them?
Here are the answers.
