Have you received unsolicited international sales inquiries and don’t know if you should act? Do you want to start exporting but don’t know how to start? Have you started exporting but want to increase your foreign sales?
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, join us for an informal Exporting Brown Bag presentation and discussion. 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.
