Choosing and managing your export partners.

Relationships play a vital role in exporting success.

Choosing who you will entrust with financing, producing, distributing or marketing your product or services internationally is a major step in your export journey. There are also many issues that can complicate your relationships along the way; finance, shipping, contracts, protecting your IP, global politics......

..... Poor choices can be costly and cause a lot of heartache.

Join us for this one-day intensive "ask and learn" program, as we cover decision making when choosing your exporting partners, the options available to manage the complexities of both long-distance and local business relationships, and take a look at what in the world is going on with our neighbours and trading partners.
