Join us to learn the step by step way to reach international growth. Starting with the current export climate we will move on to cover the best route to market for your business and the other considerations which include costs, pricing & payment terms. We will also visit a subject that often gets overlooked, the aspect of Language and Culture. 

Our experts have many years of knowledge and experience which makes them perfect to offer you first hand advice. The Q & A session which concludes the workshop, will give you the opportunity to relate the topics covered to your business and receive specific guidance on moving forward with growth.
