My comments

I did a post about a month ago about exporting events coming up through the rest of the year.  I’m planning on attending the Global Summit and encourage you to do so as well if exporting is at all part of your business.  What’s new about this post is not so much the information about the Global Summit, but about the opportunity to schedule meetigs with the international managers from Ohio’s offices overseas.  This is great one-on-one face time that will truly pay dividends.  Here is the email I received today:
