Austin Auger Presentation
Speaker provided by:
“Navigating the Cultural Minefield – Doing International Business in the ‘America First’ Era”
This presentation will cover the dos and don’ts of doing business cross culturally. Austin Auger advises companies and business partners how to engage with each other—especially those with different business practices. Auger is currently the director of business development for engineering and construction (Oil and Gas /Power Division) at CB&I’s (Chicago Bridge and Iron Company) Tokyo location. He is also a country representative director for CB&I Federal Services. In these roles, he advises companies and business partners how to engage with each other—especially those with different business practices. He is also, as he puts it, a “trouble-shooter,” identifying the root causes of issues between companies, helping them overcome problems to work cohesively together. This work takes him all over the globe, as do his teaching assignments. In addition to teaching courses on business culture challenges at several universities in the U.S. and abroad, Auger leads classes and workshops for such corporations as Japan Airlines, Sony, Toyo Engineering, Suntory Beverages, Shaw, and the Japan Atomic Power Corporation.
