About the Event

Why attend?

Export Essentials is for anyone who’s serious about growing a business internationally from New Zealand.

The Export Essentials workshop is perfect for you if:

•  you’re not exporting yet, but want to get it right from the start and build a strong pathway for international success

•  you’re already involved in export, and want to get better results from your current activities offshore, prepare for new markets, or move to a new stage of growth for your business

•  you’re an entrepreneur or business owner with a small team, and want a better way to work on your export business, not just in it

•  you need to give new staff (or those new to export) a head start on the fundamentals of exporting and international business.

The workshop facilitators have extensive experience working with exporters or running export businesses in their own right – so you’re learning from people who know the real-world challenges of export, not just the theory.

The workshop will give you everything you need to:

•  Express a unique value proposition that resonates with customers and channel partners

•  Develop market selection methods to help you focus on your top two or three markets

•  Learn how to validate new markets and understand where the best opportunities lie

•  Use value chain analysis to find the best pathway and channel options for a new market

•  Select and qualify a channel partner, and understand how to best pitch your business to them

•  Plan your market entry to set yourself up for success from day one

The export essentials workshop will be facilitated by Ryan Sproull and Patrice Feary from Katabolt on behalf of NZTE.
