An Earful of Guidance from the Queen of Podcasting, Kathrin Bussmann

Who hasn’t heard of Kathrin Bussmann?  Oh come on now — let me walk you out of that cave of yours :-).  She runs Verbaccino and hosts the world famous Worldly Marketer Podcast and we are lucky enough to have her present “Building Your Global Brand Through Podcasting” for WEGG on Wednesday, May 9 from 11:00 a.m. — 12:00 (noon) p.m. Central time.

In this WEGGinar™, you will master podcasting basics and learn the best-kept secrets to putting on a successful podcast, which include, but are not limited to, how:

  1. Podcasting does not require a lot of fancy equipment.
  2. Podcasting does require consistency and a significant time commitment.
  3. To approach podcasting as a content-marketing effort, not a source of revenue.
  4. To make podcast unique and valuable.
  5. To spend time promoting your podcast.

Smart global marketers know that podcast fans are time constrained, eager to keep learning, prosperous, and social media-savvy, and Kathrin will help us understand how to connect with this valuable audience.

Register for this session now (it is free of charge thanks to WEGG’s generous sponsors:  UPS, IBM and Bank of America).

How a Wicked Road Trip to Minturn, Colorado Inspired a Thriving Global Design Business

There are some who dream of starting a business and others who dare to do it and that’s Julia.  In her case, she aspired to be a great hostess but instead created an artful collection — bowls, platters, trays, cake stands, housewares, and serveware — to help every entertainer impress.  With pieces that are both classical and romantic and can fit in at the dining room table or on the patio, we’re sure you will find Julia’s WEGGinar™ both inspiring and informative — with the goal of helping anyone, anywhere, start a similar type business and take it global.

Where did Julia get the idea for her thriving global design business?

I’ve been a serial entrepreneur, and I’ve always had a passion for food and entertaining. That’s what I learned from living in Paris and having friends from all over Europe and the Middle East—hospitality is the cornerstone of society, and entertaining is a daily event. I noticed how gracious people were in always making sure things looked beautiful. I collected random serveware when I traveled, and one day I looked down at the table and thought, this is a mess. I wanted something with more of a flow to it.

Lucky you.  Julia will share her vast experience with us at our next WEGGinar™ hosted on Wednesday, April 4 at 11:00 a.m. Central time on “How a Wicked Road Trip to Minturn, Colorado Inspired a Thriving Global Design Business.”  The event is FREE of charge but you must register to attend: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/8918865979114339587.   Please bring your cup of tea and join us for our own little private Julia Knight party.  We look forward to your participation.

Be Joyful and Gear Up to Go Global in 2018

As we enter into a new year, WEGG will continue its focus offering top notch education programming via its popular monthly WEGGinars™ and on-the-ground workshops but we will also look into building an online platform that facilitates “access” to key movers and shakers in international trade and encourages more knowledge sharing peer-to-peer.  Watch for more on this development as the year progresses.  And if you are not signed up for our WEGG World Newsletter, here’s a sample of what you missed in our last issue.  By signing up, you can stay in the know on all things related to expanding your business globally.  It’s the eve of a new year:  be joyful and gear up to go global.

Meanwhile, the public-private consultation on the development of ‘Women National Business Agenda’ was organised by the Centre for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) and USAID Pakistan Regional Economic Integration Activity (PREIA) in collaboration with the Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI).  The goal of this women-specific agenda is to give women a voice – ‘a first step towards their participation in the economic policy advocacy process’. Here’s one suggestion.

Recommendations to the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) included allocation of 25 per cent budget/quota for women exporters to ensure their participation in TDAP-sponsored trade delegations/exhibitions, establishing of platforms for knowledge sharing, and increasing formal exports by women entrepreneurs in online business.
