Globalization Strategic Alliances Roundtable (GSAR)
Berlin, Germany, June 22, 2001

Introductory Note by Bob Jensen --- http://www.trinity.edu/rjensen/ 
Unexpectedly, Agnes Cheng came up to me during the Early Bird Reception on June 21, 2001 in Berlin at Cross-Border Business Combinations and Strategic Alliances Conference at Humboldt-Universitat.  Professor Cheng requested that I attend a June 22 morning session she had organized called the Berlin Globalization Strategic Alliances Roundtable (GSAR).  She then explained that the reason she invited me was to have her session captured on videotape.

I must explain that, although I capture a lot of video at conferences, my skills in this regard are strictly amateur.  The GSAR speakers in Berlin were not wearing microphones, so the only audio captured was through the microphone built into my old Sony camcorder.

I am temporarily making my Berlin GSAR audio recordings available on my Web server (actually courtesy of the Computer Science Department at Trinity University).  I am providing Dr. Cheng my audio and picture files on a CD-R disk so that she may eventually serve them up at the GSAR Web server at --- http://www.globalizationroundtable.org/  
Your computer must have MP3 audio playback software in order to listen to the audio files.

Globalization Strategic Alliances Roundtable (GSAR of the American Accounting Association) has the following purposes: 

The GSAR's purposes are bringing business school representatives, international center directors, association and section leaders, international accounting journal editors, international conference organizers and those who are interested in developing globalization strategies for their organizations to a roundtable meeting to discuss globalization missions, strategies, activities and potential cooperation.
