Emerging Markets Expansion for the Global Business Owner and Entrepreneur
Sara Haq
SH International
"It is a myth that emerging markets expansion requires massive capital and an extensively developed infrastructure, such as that of organizations like the World Bank or companies like Procter & Gamble. Small and medium-sized businesses, as well as entrepreneurs, can dramatically increase their profits by harnessing the growth opportunity presented by the emerging markets."
Haq is proficient in Spanish, French, Urdu/Hindi, Arabic and Turkish, and is based in Washington, D.C.

So You've Won the Lottery ... Now What?
Peter Lazaroff, CFA, CFP
Wealth Manager
"First, interview multiple advisors and understand different credentials. CFA, CFP, CPA are all considered the most respected designations in the financial advice industry. There are a lot of designations that don't require much work to obtain and sometimes even just require an annual due to use the designation. Second, pay attention to fees."
Lazaroff has a reoccurring spot on the local FOX News affiliate in St. Louis and regular writes about market conditions for mainstream publications and industry trades.

The Rise of Printed Electronics
Davor Sutija
Thin Film Electronics ASA
"[Printed electronics] is a new opportunity for retailers to engage with consumers through NFC-enabled smartphone. In 2016, we will see more consumer brands invest in technology such as printed electronics to not only leverage capabilities to engage with consumers, but also to maintain control when it comes to monitoring inventory."
Prior to joining Thin Film in January 2010, Dr. Sutija was senior vice president, product marketing, at FAST, a Microsoft subsidiary, and founding CEO at SiNOR AS (now REC-SiTech), a producer of electronic and PV-grade silicon ingots. He was elected to the board of the Organic Electronics Association in 2012 and has served on the boards of technology firms SensoNor, Birdstep, and Owera. Dr. Sutija graduated from the Jerome Fisher Management and Technology program at the Wharton School, and has a Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley, in chemical engineering. He was a Hertz Fellow at Lawrence Berkeley Labs.
