In today’s highly competitive business environment, why global operation is a critical part in an organization? What are the crucial skill sets to excel? What are the war stories of the leading Fortune 500 companies before they set the industrial benchmarks? And how they need to continue to reinvent themselves against competition?

In this season’s CLGO Info-session, we have invited Mr. Keith Miears, Global Director of World Wide Procurement at Dell, Inc. to share with us about the key success factors on how Dell runs global operations.

Prior to joining Dell, Mr. Miears worked at IBM serving in various roles within the manufacturing operations. In his speech, Mr. Miears will try to answer the above questions based on his real executive experience, he will also share his opinion as how CLGO will prepare students to get the crucial skill sets to excel in today’s and tomorrow’s global operations, and how the opportunities are ever growing in China and Asia for graduates with such skills, and what their career might look like.
