Are you interested in exporting, but don’t know where to start?
Join Senior Export Advisor Brent Bannister for a one hour workshop (at your desk) while he introduces businesses to the fundamentals of exporting and the opportunities and challenges involved in exporting their products and services to the world. The workshop will outline what businesses need to consider when developing an export plan and what support is available to assist them.
Participants will also have an opportunity to ask Brent questions as we go.
