It's Official

The University of North Georgia is very excited to announce that the 2020 International Business Studies program will include its first trip to Singapore.  Sixteen students will make the trip to Singapore over Spring Break in March 2020 and visit a wide array of international businesses, educational institutions and cultural sites over a 10 day period.  Some of the businesses to be visited include Coke Asia, Seimens, Coperion, ESSEC Business School, and the Singapore Economic Development Board.  The trip will also include a daytrip to Malaysia.  We think this will be a great addition to the International Business Studies program and add an Asian element to the existing London and Italy programs already in place.

London and Singapore International Business Studies

The University of North Georgia is gearing up for the 2020 International Business Studies program and, in addition to London, will be adding Singapore to the mix.  Like London for the European business community, Singapore is a central hub in Asia for many large scale businesses.  Warren King's prior experience working and living in Singapore makes him a valuable resource in coordinating this unique opportunity for UNG students and he will lead the group if sufficient students sign up.  For more information on both London and Singapore Warren has created two video presentations that show an overview of these rich and learning filled programs.  Click London or Singapore to view them online.

Wisdom Project 2030 - Gainesville

VISION 2030 is a community project of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce and was initiated in 2005 with over 1,000 Gainesville-Hall County citizens describing the community they'd like to live, work, and raise families in with a "common vision."  Nxt Level Advisors was engaged by the leaders of this innovative project to conduct a Strategic Review to provide an independent evaluation of operations and make recommendations for enhancing the projects viability.  At the conclusion of this evaluation a detailed report was furnished to the organization with the following quote from the executive director.  "Many thanks to you both for your great work in leading us through this process.  While the one-day format may have prevented us from exploring more deeply, we do feel a great deal was achieved for the organization and we are appreciative of that!  We know what we have to do now."

March 2019 - London International Business Studies

During the week of March 10, 2019 Warren led a group of senior students from the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega, Georgia on a Study Abroad Trip to London.  This trip was a combination of business visit and cultural touring in Europe's most influential centers of business and commerce.  Some of the businesses visited included Lloyds of London, Jaguar, Coke London, and CDW, among others.  The students consider this one of the highlights of their international business studies.  A similar trip to Singapore is planned for March 2020.
