The field trip to India was an amazing experience that has given me a true appreciation of the importance of understanding the local context and practices. It was not just about travelling to an amazing country with great people, culture and cuisine, but seeing it through the eyes of business leaders really gave it depth and perspective. Research alone does not touch on the true complexity and intricacies of this huge market, to which prominent business leaders were able to offer their advice and insights on. Before doing business in India - do this trip!
