  • Compliance perspectives from India, Finland, Sweden and France
  • The basics of a robust anti-corruption program for international groups
  • Controlling partners in sales as well as offset, and merger and acquisition deal
  • Opting for a collective action concept.

The Forum discussion on the 20th will be on offset in Canada and South Korea.

To Reduce December Stress, Use This Handy Calendar

In October:

  • If you haven't already done so, set up a Christmas gift idea file.

  • Begin shopping and ordering gifts from among trade exchange members.

  • Update your holiday-card mailing list.

  • Decide the type and quantity of cards you'll want this year. (Check with your trade broker for possible availability.)

  • Order your cards.

  • Consider starting your holiday diet.

  • Plan where you'll be spending the holidays and make arrangements.

  • Be sure any medical, dental, or pet appointments are scheduled either before or after the holidays. Double-check school and children's schedules that may conflict.

  • If your family does an annual letter to include with the card, do your first draft now.

  • Purchase holiday stamps for the cards, labels for the computer, pocket cards for cash gifts, and gift wrapping supplies.

  • Complete any catalog or online holiday ordering this month, before the November rush.

In November:

  • Attend your trade exchange's Christmas Expo for last minute gifts and decorations.

  •  Finish ordering gifts.

  •  Send your overseas gifts by the middle of the month.

  •  Start sending your other gifts before December.

  •  Edit your holiday letter.

  •  Either make your holiday labels, or start addressing the cards.

  • Complete and mail your holiday letter and cards.

  • Call your trade broker and order special gift certificates.

  • Set up your menu and decoration ideas for upcoming parties.

In December:

  •  Decorate the house and yard.

  • Purchase food staples or needed party supplies.

  • Schedule a before-Christmas massage, or something special to de-stress and pamper yourself … through your exchange, of course!

Successful Leaders Ask The Right Questions!

The late Peter Drucker, considered the dean of America's business and management philosophies, stresses that successful leaders are different in that they ask the right questions.
Because leaders are purpose-driven they don't begin by wondering, "What do I want to do?" Instead they establish a mission by asking, "What needs to be done?"

Their next question is, "Of those things that would make a difference, which are right for me?" They never tackle things they aren't good at, but make sure those necessities get done … just not by them, as they are not intimidated by others' strength.
