Imagine a world that we can “connect”
with each other by just sitting down and talking via the Internet.
That world consists of Africans, North and South Americans,
Europeans and Asians - and many will be non white. Half of the
entire wealth of this group will be in the hands of just a handful
and most of that wealth will come from North America. As businesswomen,
we can share that wealth, through technology, through training
and by building the relationships needed to foster profitable
business growth. Through our magazine we already connect businesswomen
to each other around the world, this is another step towards
our global community.
We see an opportunity to be surrounded by citizens from all
of those countries and to connect with them on a business level.
We know that the world is changing, but that isn’t news.
What is news is the pace at which the change is occurring. Information
technology is accelerating the process dramatically. The shift
from agriculture to industry and now to information processing
has been rapid. Now, in the developed world we have taken information
technology to innovation. A shift that is most significant.
By using Internet technology, and our on-line
ConnectUs Forum, we can introduce women in business to each
other around the world in celebration of International
Women’s Day. We can be linked to women’s
associations around the world, forming a chain of information
technology that will benefit all of the businesswomen we connect
with. Using the forum, we can provide contacts, information,
trends, training and methods that will enable the citizens of
our Global Community to communicate and compete in world economy
by working together.
This article is about economy, it is about women and their
economic clout around the world. We will provide you with the
opportunity to tell us about a women in your country who will
share their insight on trends, innovative access to capital,
strategic alliances, and potential joint ventures. In a sentence,
this will be a glimpse towards the future - paving the way for
globalization of the world economy, fostering social integration
without sacrificing cultural diversity. Women can lead the way,
recognizing that creativity and innovation are the building
blocks for the next economic era.
We have been part of many successful world conferences and
we have documented success stories of many businesswomen who
have participated in these conferences. We will continue to
profile women from around the world, women who are willing to
share their experiences. We will help them form strategic alliances
and build bridges to better business in the new millennium.
Using our forum,
our newsletter and our company, ConnectUs International Inc.
we will make a difference, by instigating introductions to women
we know around the world.
Please join me, participate in our on
line Forum, share your stories, your needs and your expertise.
Imagine a world where you can “connect” with businesswomen
everywhere. Women can lead the way, using our creativity and
innovation as the building blocks for our economic future. If
International Trade is the door to the future of world economy
then we, at the magazine can provide the key that will unlock
that potential globally.
