The San Diego World Affairs Council presents:

Stephen Creskoff
Acclaimed Author and International Trade Expert

Acclaimed author and international trade expert Stephen Creskoff will talk about his just published book, “What You Need to Know to Go Global.” Creskoff will also make predictions about China, the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, and key international trade trends and debunk “trade myths” spread by politicians in this election year.

“What You Need to Know to Go Global” was launched September 28, 2016, at the World Trade Organization’s Public Forum in Geneva. Reviewers have said that the book is “an invaluable tool for anyone trying to understand and overcome the challenges of international trade” and fills a “big gap in the available books on this subject.”

“What You Need to Know to Go Global” is designed to help smaller businesses navigate international trade transactions. It includes chapters on getting international customers/suppliers, getting paid, protecting intellectual property, arranging logistics, understanding government regulations, and business social responsibility. It concludes with a chapter predicting future international trade developments and an “author’s journal” relating Mr. Creskoff’s personal experiences as an international lawyer/consultant and business person.

 Please join Steve Creskoff on November 9 for a lively discussion of topical trade issues!
