Plan for Export Success is an intermediate level programme starting in Inverness on Tuesday 19th September 2017 with follow 2 follow up session in October.
The programme is targeted at Highlands and Islands businesses that are ready to take on the challenge of developing new business in international markets, or to introduce greater strategy and structure to the export steps already taken, and those that want to develop their export capability to grow in international markets.
This free group programme, runs over three days (September - October 2017) and is open to Highlands and Islands companies. It is fully funded by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) with funding from the European Regional Development Fund*.
This group programme involves a series of three 1-day workshops during September - October 2017.
The workshops are delivered in an open and dynamic way by a facilitator who has in-depth experience of international business.
The focus is not on academic learning, it is on the application of good export process and practice. The sessions work as a peer group planning forum – where companies develop their export strategy guided by best practice as well as gain valuable skills.
Here’s how previous participants have benefitted:
"I found the Intermediate Programme an exceptionally good course. It was like having a manual on how to target, choose and manage new markets for export. I'm now very excited to be able to implement this manual in our company"
“I found I took different aspects from each day – everything was so useful and really helped to focus our export strategy”
“The work on partner selection process & criteria is very good. In addition, the partner proposition presentation opened my eyes to what we could be doing better”
The Programme is delivered by Martin McBride (Envision) who has 30 years’ experience of exporting/international business, in industry, consultancy, and ongoing investment and board involvement in exporting businesses.
