Inside Inpex asked Romanus Wolter a few questions about his presentation and himself...
Inside Inpex: What can a business attendee take away from your presentation and apply to his or her everyday work life?
Romanus Wolter: Their passion forms the foundation for their business and their lives. Attendees will be able to walk away with an instant impact message that will become the foundation for their marketing campaigns. [They will learn] practical ideas on how to research the marketplace so they can find the information they need to succeed and the ability to create a strategy that will keep them going.
II: How could attending a trade show like INPEX help a small business expand?
RW: The resources, contacts and strategies they will learn will help shorten the time it will take for them to move toward their goals. They will also be able to discover companies that have the services and products they need to bring their new products to the market.
II: What invention could you not live without?
RW: I couldn't live without the invention of the word entrepreneur. It means we all have the freedom to pursue our dreams and help others achieve theirs! There are places in the world where people are not free to even speak about their ideas and inventions. Entrepreneur equals freedom. Our purpose in life is to use that freedom to change people's lives, including our own.
In each edition of Inside INPEX Newsletter, we will highlight a speaker who will present a topic during INPEX Inventors University.
