International Trade Experts on Twitter 2016

It’s been 6+ years sharing and trading advice on international trade from those involved on the ground. We have held weekly conversation on #GlobalBizTalk.

For 2016, here are my recommended Twitter Follows in the field of International Business:

@HoeferleChristian Hoeferle is an international business consultant and cross-cultural expert. Currently based in Tennessee, he hails from southern Germany. Definitely read his blog, The Culture Mastery.

@edbmarsh – Best B2B international marketing & sales expert I’ve found, Ed Marsh is a prolific writer on a variety of international business topics. His blog at Consilium Global Business Advisors is a must read.

@DavidMarkNoahDavid Noah is the founder of Intermart, Inc. which makes export management software. David has collected a strong set of blogging experts on his site, Shipping Solutions. Definitely worth combing through for content. Some of the best articles are in areas of international logistics and finance.

@jht4x4 John Treleaven is a former Canadian ambassador turned international business consultant, currently based in the Vancouver area. He is highly opinionated on international trade policies but I rarely ever think he’s wrong.

@shull  – Sean Hull is a senior level IT project manager who has led multinational projects around the world. When not on international assignment, he can normally be found in either Washington DC or Columbus, Ohio.

@uklatinamerica – Gabriela Castro-Fontuora has lived in the UK and is currently based in her native Uruguay. She is a great resource for anyone needing market research or marketing campaigns focused on Latin America or Europe. Gaby also writes extensively on international marketing and Latin American markets on her blog: SunnySkySolutions.
