Interested in “Going Global and Growing Global”? Carol Webster is an accomplished speaker on international marketing and cross-cultural communications, and has spoken at conferences worldwide, including the U.S., Czech Republic, Germany, Brazil, Australia and the People’s Republic of China.
Carol Webster founded Cassel International in 2003 to provide strategic planning and marketing services for businesses that wish to enter or expand their presence in the global marketplace.
Carol graduated from Georgetown University in 1978 with a B.S. in Languages and Linguistics. After serving as an executive in several industrial environments, Ms. Webster received her B.B.A. in Business from Belmont University in 1986, with a concentration in Industrial Marketing and Product Management. Intrigued by the global marketplace and its opportunities, Carol subsequently earned an MBA in International Management from the renowned Garvin School of International Management (Thunderbird). This intense program included several months at the European Business School in Germany, and a professional internship with Dr. August Oetker Nahrungsmittel. Carol also completed a Leadership Program at Ashridge Management College in England in 2001.
Carol has over 25 years of experience in the U.S. and Europe in international marketing management, in such diverse fields as engineering, automotive, apparel machinery, specialty food and industrial textiles. Her expertise lies in the areas of strategic business planning, business analysis, marketing management for consumer and industrial products, establishment and management of worldwide agent/distributor/sales networks, and corporate communications. Carol has excellent professional and personal contacts the world over, and her reputation for efficiency and performance is unmatched.
In addition to speaking English, Ms. Webster is fluent in German and conversant in both French and Spanish. She has traveled extensively for both business and pleasure (at last count more than 70 countries), and is well versed in cross-cultural communications.
I have a passion for international business and marketing! The trend toward globalization continues, and anyone and everyone should be cognizant of it, and willing to be an integrated participant!
It is my goal to help you “Go Global and Grow Global”. It’s time to reach out to potential clients and consumers in the 193 countries around the world!
I can help you take the first step into international business by giving you a plan to move forward – identifying those markets which need your product or service, developing a marketing plan to reach those markets, finding the right business partners and distribution channels, and doing it all in a culturally correct way.
Cross-cultural communications is an important part of doing business internationally, and I offer several presentations on the subject, many presented with humor, and all laced with my personal experiences over the past 25 years!
