The Bridge to Korea network brings together senior leaders from the South Korean business community, Queensland exporters to Korea and Queensland Government representatives. Speakers included the South Korea Consul General to Brisbane, senior representatives from Queensland Treasury as well as from the Korea Trade & Investment Promotion Agency.
As one of only three speakers from the private sector, Greg spoke about Ingeus’ successful business journey in South Korea as an inspiration to other Australian organisations. From initial business development activities in 2007, Ingeus Korea is now the largest provider of government and corporate outplacement services in the country, and is the largest private provider of welfare-to-work services.
In his presentation, Greg acknowledged the importance of partnerships to our business, built on trust and on delivering on promised results.
Whilst acknowledging the advantages our international experience in delivering new innovative services, Greg stressed the importance of creating a company with a strong national character, staffed by Koreans and meeting local needs. Advisors greatly appreciated being able to draw on Ingeus' international best practice, and profited greatly in their roles through connections with other offices and via our internal intranet ‘IngeusNet’.
Greg concluded with a reflection on how, in a globalised world, Ingeus’ vision and core values had transferred and thrived in a cultural environment very different to the one in which they were first conceived and realised.
