Already the first module was a great opportunity to get to work with seasoned trade compliance professionals in an in-depth discussion of very complex trade compliance subjects with the upcoming generation of trade compliance leaders. The presentations were challenging and the very thought-provoking questions from the audience were even more so. All in all, it was an excellent way to spend an afternoon.
