Managing Directors, Gavin Lew and Robert Schumacher were invited to participate on an interactive panel, Business across Borders, by Inc magazine. This invitation was extended to a select group CEOs with global expertise from this year’s Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies. User Centric was recognized for the fourth year in a row on this list for its constant and continued growth, including the only user experience research and design firm ranked in the Midwest for 2010.
The panel will discuss best practices and money saving tips for conducting international business, legal and logistical solutions, technologies to adopt, and future trends and opportunities in global business. Robert and Gavin are ideal speakers for this topic and will share their expert knowledge and experience for conducting international projects. As the driving force behind User Centric’s global research initiatives, Robert Schumacher serves as CEO of User Experience Ltd., the first foreign-owned user research firm in Beijing, China and co-founded the User Experience Alliance (UXa), an international network of 22 leading user experience firms in Europe, Asia, America, and Australia. Created in early 2005, the network reaches markets all over the world and offers international user experience research for global companies from one source. Robert also edited and published the first book on global user research, the Handbook for Global User Research (2009), with contributions from 53 authors, including Gavin Lew, from over 20 countries.
Robert will be on the Chicago panel on October 6, 2010 and Gavin will be at San Diego’s presentation on October 19, 2010. For more information about this event, including registration information visit the Inc Upcoming Events page.
