The keynote address was delivered by Dr. Debborah Swallow, Executive Coach, Business Consultant and Expert on Intercultural Communication, Cultural Diversity and International Business Practice.

Dr. Swallow's presentation Developing Roots Wings for your Company explored how businesses can develop a culture of excellence that filters down from the leader to all members of staff. This builds individual self-confidence, self-esteem and self-belief that in turn enables each individual and the organization in turn to reach full potential. Her talk covered the need and the ways in which an organisation can adapt for foreign markets to do business with greater knowledge, understanding and success.

The Frost Sullivan Best Practices Awards Banquet offers unparalleled access to European industry's movers and shakers.
