Russ: This is the PKF Texas Entrepreneur’s Playbook. I’m Russ Capper, this week’s guest host and I’m here with Karen Love, Director of Practice Growth; welcome to the Playbook Karen.
Karen: Thank you, I am so happy to be here.
Russ: Well, and I am as well because I got something I want to ask you about. I keep hearing discussions about this special international conference based and centered around a report that’s been put together by a collaboration of researchers over multiple years. Do I have the description?
Karen: Well it just sounds fantastic; I want to hear about it now. So it’s called Profit and Peril: Secrets to Global Expansion and it is a collaboration, as you shared, of BBVA Compass, EMA, Hart Energy, PKF Texas, Pierpont and there’s a couple of other people involved like MasterWord and a law firm called Looper Goodwine. And we’ve been working on this for about two years and are actually going to unveil the project September 22nd.
Russ: Okay, where is the event going to be held?
Karen: It’s going to be held at the PKF Texas office building which is the San Felipe Plaza on the second floor; it’ll be a breakfast for business people.
Russ: Okay, say we’ve got somebody interested, how do they find out about it?
Karen: Well they can go to the PKF Texas website and they can click on the International Desk and the information will be there. And then one of our team members on the Practice Growth team of PKF Texas, Jen Lemanski would be able to help them.
Russ: Okay. My goodness, that collaboration team seems like an all-star team quite frankly.
Karen: It is an all-star team and we’re so excited that we got to collaborate with them.
Russ: Okay, one more time, what’s the date?
Karen: It is September the 22nd, 7:30am. You’re going to register and do some networking then 8:00 the actual presentation begins. Everybody that attends will get a copy of the Hart Energy publishing part of it and then we’ll also provide it digitally.
Russ: Great; fantastic. For other international topics visit PKFTexas.com/internationaldesk. This has been another Thought Leader production brought to you by PKF Texas Entrepreneur’s Playbook.
