Business Beyond Borders – Episode 01: Introduction to the Business Beyond Borders podcast
We’re pleased to launch the first episode of our bimonthly podcast, Business Beyond Borders with Cynthia Dearin.
In this introductory episode, we introduce our podcast host - Cynthia Dearin.
Cynthia is the Managing Director of Dearin & Associates, Founder of the International Business Accelerator and author of Camels, Sheikhs and Billionaires - Your Guide to Business Culture in the Middle East and North Africa.
We started the Business Beyond Borders podcast to unlock the secrets of making your small business an international success. We believe in challenging the status quo and we know that there's never been a better time for companies to go global. And we believe that even the smallest businesses deserve the opportunity to be internationally successful.
The podcast is an opportunity for us to share some of the lessons that other people have learned in their international journey. We’ll be digging into their successes and failures, and sharing their strategies for success.
The podcast is also a free resource - it’s there to inspire you to create your own strategies and opportunities for international success. We are keen to give back wherever we can and we recognize that if we do a good job, this podcast is going to be a source of information and motivation for people around the world who wouldn't otherwise be able to pay for it. It’s our gift to you.
Lastly, thinking about the bigger picture, we know that international trade helps to break down barriers between cultures. Some say it's one of the only things that prevents war. So, if we can contribute to global harmony in a small way, we’re happy.
