Business Elevated Podcast (Season 4 Episode 35)

This podcast series features business and government leaders discussing what it’s like to live and work in the great state of Utah.

The Business Elevated podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, and Spotify.



This episode features a conversation with two representatives of World Trade Center Utah: David Carlebach, the chief operating officer and managing director of international programs, and Jim Porter, director of service operations and client strategy, and podcast host Pete Codella, Go Utah’s communications director. WTC Utah provides companies with opportunities for establishing global connections and partners with Go Utah on international trade missions that help companies make valuable international connections.

Carlebach and Porter discuss international investments companies make in Utah and their impacts on the state’s economy, innovation in the state, and working with small and mid-size companies to prepare them for international growth. Codella asks Porter about the organization’s expanded vision and what the term ‘Crossroads of the World’ means as it elevates Utah companies on the world stage. The duo also gives listeners advice on how to get involved with the organization, the economic benefits and opportunities Utanns realize from an organization like WTC Utah, and more.
