More about Importers Office Hour Session:
Office hour sessions give you a chance to talk one-on-one with speakers and mentors. We bring in dozens of experts so you can get targeted advice on everything from sales and distribution to operations and management.
Office Hours are for Importers, Distributors, Retailers and Suppliers who want informed feedback on business ideas and challenges. Our mentors have real-world expertise in a range of topics.
There will be 4 sessions, each of an hour’s duration. If you are an importer, you are recommended to attend the Import business office hour session. If you are a distributor, you are recommended to attend the Distribution business office hour session and so on. Each session will have experts from your domain.
For example: The Distributor Office Hour session will have one expert from sales, one from management, one from legal and one from operations. This will allow you to ask questions ranging from sales to operations about your distribution business.
Seats are limited to 200 people per session. You must pre-register and select your office hour sessions.
Distributor’s Office Hour Session: May 16, 1pm to 2pm.
Importer’s Office Hour Session: May 16, 4pm to 5pm.
Supplier’s Office Hour Session: May 17, 9.30am to 10.30am.
Retailer’s Office Hour Session: May 16, 1pm to 2pm.
The set up is a mix of class room and chair-only set up. Those who need to work on laptops may sit on the chairs that have desks with them.
What it’s not:
1) We’re committed to creating a lively learning atmosphere, and we require that all participants abide by our code of conduct. These conversations are fun, but Office Hours is not a speed-dating event.
2) It’s also not a pitching event; mentors appreciate your questions, not requests for taking your brand.
3) It’s not one to one, you will be in a session room of 200 people and your questions will be open and in public. This is an open session where you will also benefit from other attendees’ questions.
We’re excited to host this format as a way of helping you learn about solutions for real-world business problems and ask questions related to your business.
Office hours will be limited to 200 seats. Importers and Distributors are encouraged to reserve their seats using the above form asap.
