Growth-minded business owners know that globalization is the obvious path to success. Local businesses race to capitalize on international markets knowing that Singapore is way too small a market. That as a background, the pressing question becomes “how to”, which this Business Globalization Seminar will address.
Going global presents BIG challenges, but not ones that a savvy business owner cannot overcome. The potential for expansion, growth and technological advancements far outweighs the initial globalisation pains. Pains that this Business Globalization Seminar will tackle.
- How can local businesses grow by international expansion?
- How can business ventures abroad be successful and sustainable?
- By entering the international market arena, what aspects of a business should be protected?
Having helped numerous companies expand overseas, consulting firms Altiply from Louken Group, Elite Translations Asia, and Intellect-Worldwide Singapore come together in this Business Globalization Seminar to share valuable insights and best practices for overseas business growth.

Cynthia Woo, Associate Director, Altiply Consulting, Louken Group
As a Singapore entrepreneur, you have set up and run a successful business, and are raring to grow it further by seeking new markets and customers overseas. But there are a number of things you should consider before or while you are building your overseas network. Cynthia will be sharing some of these important considerations that you should look into as you ‘go global’, plus case studies on how successful companies have addressed these matters.
10.00 am: The Globalisation Localisation Dichotomy – Communicating for Business Success
Joanne Ho, Consultant, Elite Translations Asia Singapore
Globalisation can go seriously wrong when communications fail to take in local sensitivities and adapt the brand, products, and campaigns to the new markets. Joanne will be sharing how businesses can adopt a strategic approach to globalising while localising their content, hence maximising exposure in international markets, minimising intercultural and media backlash, achieving success, and ensuring revenue growth.
10.30 am: Intellectual Property – Seizing The Global Business Opportunity
Alex Neoh, Executive Director, Trademark Division, Intellect-Worldwide Singapore
Alex will be sharing on the interpretations of Intellectual Property and the rules & regulation for each country. Several countries will be selected to show the differences in each country’s laws and how you should utilise it to protect your trademark. Further to this, Alex will also be sharing on the acquisition of trademarks and the available options on the table, instead of going through the conventional method of a fresh application and the wait till registration.
