Last week 12 of our colleagues from the German Chamber offices in Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Toronto set out for a three day team building experience in Atlanta.
The annual DEinternational meeting.
What exactly is DEinternational you ask?
DEinternational is the worldwide service brand for the foreign German Chamber network. Through this brand we provide services to German companies planning to do business abroad, as well as those already established in foreign markets.
The goal of our meeting was to share experiences and develop best practices across the North American chambers.
We conducted brainstorming sessions and workshops focusing on enhancing our services and strengthening our competencies.
Renewable energy conferences, incentive programs, and general consulting services for German companies entering the US market are just a few the many topics discussed. We even took an in-depth look at marketing and research tools we use including Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and time management software as well as professional databases. The dynamic, interactive exchange between offices helped us plan current and upcoming projects.
To cement the team atmosphere built over two days of strategic discussion, we wrapped the meeting up with an exhilarating white water rafting trip down the scenic Ocoee River.
Next year it’s your turn, San Francisco!
