I’ve listened to 191 episodes and they just keep getting better! – each one is an interview and Michellini gets them to open up on their Asian business experience – what works and what didn’t work – so you can avoid their mistakes.
Sometimes in business you’re trying strategies until something works, while the competition circle overhead, and suddenly one chance conversation changes everything – with Global from Asia you’re getting that conversation every week.
