Israeli Company Resilience Strategies in the US Market

Israeli Company Resilience Strategies in the US Market


As the Israeli business community navigates uncharted waters due to the current military conflict in Gaza, companies selling in the US market find themselves grappling with challenges never seen before. While some Israeli companies operating in the USA haven’t been affected, others are dealing with unforeseen hurdles which may impact their ability to survive and grow.

In this unique “expert panel” webinar, Chuck Klein from Amcon Recruitment will interview a group of US based and Israel based business leaders deeply involved in the US market on behalf of Israeli companies.

Format – Panel Discussion

Chuck Klein will ask questions and lead the discussion among the group of business leaders – in a “panel format”. We will discuss the challenges they are seeing in the field now and hear what strategies have been successful since the outbreak of the war and planned actions for 2024.
