Are you leaving money on the table? Increase your sales by expanding your reach internationally.
Join us for an informal Exporting Brown Bag presentation and discussion to answer such questions as how a company decides if it should export, where to start, what to consider if receiving unsolicited foreign sales inquiries and how to expand international sales if already exporting.
Everyone is welcome from companies thinking about exporting, companies that are ready to go, to companies that are already exporting but want to expand their sales.
Topics will include: reasons to go global, developing or refining an export strategy, finding foreign buyers, financial considerations and resources to help you.
