GROWING YOUR BUSINESS OFFSHORE
Your first forays into international markets have been successful. You may have entered into a short-term distribution arrangement or perhaps sold either goods or services via online channels, but now you realise that to grow you need to establish a more formal international presence.

The course has been specifically designed to equip Australian companies with the knowledge and skills to comply with the supply chain security aspects of the Australian Trusted Trader Program (ATT). It is presented in a way that mirrors the structure of the Australian Border Force ATT Self-Assessment Questionnaire.

So you’ve secured that all-important meeting with a potential overseas buyer, or perhaps you’re participating in a trade mission that will put you in front of senior decision makers. Well done! But have you considered how you’re going to pitch your product or service to those potential buyers, or get those decision makers to sit up and take notice of your business? Remember, you may only get one shot.

Market research is essential in this decision-making process, but the advent of internet-based research has in some ways streamlined this process.
