TORONTO, Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - One of the world's leading authorities on business strategy, innovation and managing the multinational corporation in the knowledge economy, and ranked among the ten most influential business thinkers by Thinkers 50, the global ranking of management gurus, Professor W. Chan Kim will be visiting Toronto on September 29, 2011.
Kim was also recently recognized as one of the world's most influential academics in global strategy by the Journal of International Management.
