March 28, 2011 1:48 PM
It may be naïve of me to say this, but on the surface doing business in Australia is not very different from doing business in the States.

It is hard not to fall in love with Sydney

Sydney is a beautiful city. Everywhere you look is picture perfect. The views from the harbors are stunning, the bridge is remarkable, and even the office buildings fit into the beauty of Sydney.

Sales and the art of conversation
March 24, 2011 1:00 PM
My experiences in Australia have been unique in that I did not do any initial research to set up my sales calls. As I am participating in a Virginia Economic Development Partnership trade mission, their lovely in-country consultants set up all my meetings and provided me an extremely detailed agenda with notes about the companies. I have enough information to establish a basic objective but go into each opportunity curious as to what are the real expectations.

First stop:  London

I am flying the wrong way around the world. I did not intend to do that as this trip is ostensibly for Australia, but it has actually worked out quite well.
