Book:  "Don't Cry Foul- Just Strike Them Out- Competing Globally and Winning" by Norman Cohen


Based on over 30 years experience in the global marketplace, Norman Cohen's book contains anecdotes of his personal experiences, illustrating how to succeed in the international business arena. When he retired, Norman’s specialty chemicals firm was exporting products to 38 countries.

Understanding the customs, traditions, ethics, and methods of doing business in foreign countries is essential for success in international trade. Find solutions to trade obstacles and win the business! Norman shares how friendships with Lady Margaret Thatcher and others enriched his life and helped him succeed.

Norman is President & CEO of Unitec, an international consulting company, and a partner in Devan Chemicals, a Belgian firm. 

As a reminder, you don’t have to read the book! The facilitator will share the main principles from the book with the group.


Norman Cohen, the author, will facilitate this stimulating discussion.

During this roundtable we'll:
· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth

Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. We are currently looking to fill the 2012 calendar. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month, so pick a month that suits you for 2012!
