    Global Chamber Abuja is helping members connect to business opportunities in Nigeria, in Africa and around the world.

    Warm connecting' is a focused, effective way of 'networking' advocated and practiced by Global Chamber®.

    It's important for companies in the region to gain every advantage... including leveraging the network of Global Chamber to grow.

    There are many ways to network. For many of our members, 'warm connecting' is the best because there is some thought about your business goals before making a warm introduction - and the person who is introduced is known and will very likely be interested to meet you. People are too busy these days to take meetings with people they don't know UNLESS the intro is from someone they know AND there appears to be something in it for them, as well.

    Read more about 12 tips on warm connecting HERE. And join us to grow your business in warm and wonderful ways.

    Looking forward to a great 2018!

    Proactively pursing global business opportunities is the kind of hard action that needs to be taken for business growth.

    It seems it would be great if we had one growing customer for our business located right across the street. Then we could spend all our time right there, crossing the street if there were ever any issues. We wouldn’t have to worry about cross-cultural issues and adding a layer of complexity to our business with global business. But that one growing customer would be high risk: all eggs in one basket. And so to diversify and lower risk, having more customers makes sense … across town, across the state, across the country and, eventually, across the world. It’s inevitable if you want to grow with low risk.

    Should you wait or should you go (global)? When asked, 100 percent of the speakers at Global Chamber have said, “I should have gone global sooner.” Exporting companies in the U.S. are 20 percent more profitable on average, and the 1 percent that export account for 15 percent of the national GDP.

    Will you wait for something to happen, or will you be proactive in the new year and take a positive step forward in your business growth? We can’t make that decision for you, but we can offer a safe place to come when you’re ready: Global Chamber.
