Queensland: Expert export assistance for Exporting businesses

15.05.2018 Richelle Ward

Exporting businesses will have the opportunity to take part in a series of free workshops aimed at helping them on their export journey.

Trade and Investment Queensland (TIQ), the government’s global business agency, and the Export Council of Australia (ECA) will be running a number of workshops across regional Queensland on market selection, export planning and strategy and presenting a product or service to international clients.

TIQ CEO Virginia Greville said Queensland’s merchandise and services were in demand overseas, particularly in Asian markets, but getting into those markets was not always simple.

“International trade is high on the agenda of many businesses across Queensland but navigating markets, while building capability to become a confident world trader requires ongoing development, even for seasoned exporters,” Mr Greville said.

“This event is aimed at helping all exporters, established and emerging, navigate the pitfalls and hurdles into international trade. It is also a valuable opportunity to network and learn from other businesses who are exporting.”

Professional trainer, Collins Rex, who has more than 10 years’ experience in training exporting clients will be presenting at the event.

The session will include:

  • Market selection - how to identify the market/s best suited to your product or service, including regulations and import/export restrictions and adaptations required to your product/service to suit the requirements of your target market, including packaging, labelling and pricing.
  • Export planning and strategy - prepare your business for the pitfalls of trading internationally and increase your chances of sustaining long term growth, while reducing risk. The key components of a successful business plan.
  • Developing presentation skills - What makes a good presentation and how to develope and deliver a 30-second elevator pitch.
“You’ll also learn more about Queensland’s prestigious exporting program the Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards,” Ms Greville said.

Queensland earned a record $69.6 billion from merchandise exports last year.


Please note this is a free export course with a max of two registrations per company.
