Thank you to COLD STONE (and KAHALA CORP)



The Arizona International Growth Group (AZIGG) had another excellent crowd – 135 – at the headquarters of Cold Stone Creamery last Friday the 15th.  Thank you to Lee Knowlton – President of International for Kahala Corporation – for hosting us.


And was that international sales panel great, or what?  Many, many thanks also to the amazing Gunnar Light (Melbourne IT), Oystein Konsmo (The York Group) and Joe Gold (PCFR).


Our goal at AZIGG is to bring out the international business crowd of Phoenix once per month to share ideas, stories and experiences – for the benefit of the Valley and Valley businesses.  Thanks to everyone for your support.


AZIGG is skipping September (the first Monday is Labor Day) and so our next AZIGG meeting is the first Monday in October – October 6th.  That meeting will feature Rod Miller of GPEC (Greater Phoenix Economic Council).  Rod will be presenting his ‘International State of the State’ that is now an annual event at AZIGG. We’ll be at – near 22nd and Camelback.  Start time is 7:30am.


If you’re interested in international, also check out the Governor’s Int’l State of the State in September – more info here:


The AZIGG November meeting is also a special one – on the night before the Election.  On that Monday evening November 3rd we’ll be at Thunderbird School of Global Management and we’ll be treated to presentations by successful alumni of Thunderbird. This is a joint meeting with the Thunderbird alumni association.
