So who do we work with and train?

Our training team is led by one of the most experienced and highly rated trainers and facilitators in International Business Development, often referred to as "The Export Coach".


Operating internationally requires skills and mindsets that differ from home markets. Cultural faux-pas, currency fluctuations, risk, business practices, networking and so many other aspects of your business need to be adjusted to achieve success.

We can help you to understand not only how things are different over there, what to expect, and what to do - but also how YOU come across as "different" to them and how they will perceive you!
