Business Diplomacy Conference 2017

Many businessmen simply characterize these days, by saying: “We live in a Crazy World but the good times will come back”.

Diplomats would state that “We live in the V.U.C.A. World, and this is the new normality that everyone should learn how to live with”.

In the V.U.C.A. World (characterized by Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity), business executives cannot focus only on the financial results.

International Trade and business relations are crucial for a sustainable economic growth.

The theory that successful International Business is just a matter of a new business idea and good management is naive and outdated.

In the 21st century business leaders shall exercise diplomatic competences in order to survive and grow further even in their own globally-networked business environments.



Few of the Diplomatic resources that could be useful for a Businessman:

• Reputation and trust factor;

• High level of contacts;

• Intelligence and pure market information centralized for a historical period;

• Communication channels and promotion tools.


“Diplomacy means Business”

Diplomacy should be a way of being for Business leaders.

International Business people shall learn new competences from the Diplomats:

  • Understanding the international systems;
    • Developing networks of influence;
    • Cultivate and maintain relationships with international key people; and the list can continue …
