The Global Corporation

In today's global economy, it takes international savvy to be successful. There are two ways to gain that edge: trial and error over an extended period of time, or taking advantage of someone else's hard-won experience. The trial-and-error approach costs time, corporate reputation, business and money--lots and lots of money. 

So, smart global corporations are zipping right past the competition and gaining the knowledge and intercultural skills they need before heading overseas to do business. How? By taking the second approach and benefiting from expert experience.

At IPR, we bring those international experts to you. We scour the world for the right people and the best fit for your company's cross cultural training needs. 

Over the past decade, we have developed an impressive cadre of talent and expertise. Each trainer is an expert in his or her field. These men and women have trained over a thousand employees and their families to successfully negotiate the social and business culture of their destination country.

Join us by navigating through our programs and services and see how IPR can help improve your company's global edge.
