Dr. Haji-Ghassemi has presented at conferences covering various topics such as the traditional and modern 'flexpatriate', the role of trust, social capital and networking in relation to the performance of the internationalisation of SMEs, as well as exploring the dynamics and complexities of the dark sides of trust in SMEs within ‘Strong Ties’ and ‘Weak Ties’ concerning networks, social capital and partnerships during internationalisation’.
