We will go through all the context and background behind these rules, how to apply and use them, and we will also go deep into the risks involved and the precautions needed to take into consideration to make international trade and business in the easiest, safest and most profitable way.

the course will be divided in two general sections. The first section will be centered in understanding the international, commercial and operational context in which these rules are used:

  • Legal and commercial implications and responsibilities of Buyers and Sellers.
  • Risks and alternatives.
  • Tips and recommendations for international negotiation and trade fairs and events.

The second general section will address the following topics:

  • Details of each of the available rules.
  • Obligations and responsibilities of Buyers and Sellers within each of the available rules.
  • Risks and risk mitigation possibilities within each of the available rules.


Who is the target audience?

Risks involved and additional considerations.

Gregory was born and raised in rural Illinois.  While most of his childhood was typical of many children, Gregory did have a very positive experience with a counselor who helped him out during a difficult time in his life.  It was then that he decided to dedicate his career to improving people's lives through the power of therapy.  However, that was not his only area of interest.

During his last year of high school, Gregory had an idea for a book based on an older man discussing life with a younger man. The idea was tabled for many years as Gregory attended college and graduate school. Both of those experiences allowed Gregory to hone his writing abilities.  He graduated from Augustana College with a B.A. in Psychology followed three years later by an M.Ed. from DePaul University.  After school, Gregory continued to work on his story idea until a basic manuscript was formed and refined. The Man on the Bench was released nine years later in February of 2016, making it his first published book. 

Additionally, Gregory found an interest in promoting knowledge and his passion for mental health in new and unique ways.  Gregory has been involved in various podcasts during his professional career.  Most recently, he hosts The GOBERT Report, a weekly talk show that explores the intersection of news, culture, and entertainment. 

Gregory continues to serve clients, work on future manuscripts, and build his online academy Self Start Academy in Chicago.
