Join this session of the Gerhart Center Webinar Series titled "Business Diplomacy" featuring Raymond Saner, professor at the University of Basel.

Successful operations abroad depend on a company’s commercial prowess, financial resources, and competitive products and its ability to interact with non-business counterparts such as NGOs, academics, tribal leaders, or international organizations. It also depends on its ability to look for commonality of interests, prevention of conflict and identification of mutually beneficial activities which generate positive reputational capital for the company and positive social capital for non-business stakeholders. Business Diplomacy (BD) draws competencies from traditional diplomacy and international management and first appeared in Management Journals in early 2000.
