Just spin the globe and you can find an opportunity to sell something, somewhere. Unearthing the right opportunity involves more work but offers fantastic growth potential! 

But where do you start?

At this event Simon Harris, professor of international strategy at Edinburgh University Business School and business advisor on international strategy with over twenty years of experience, will give you useful guidelines on how to help you grow your business internationally.

He will cover these three areas:
1.    What elements should you consider prior to entering a foreign market?
2.    Who should you work with and how can you build relationships in a foreign country?
3.    How can you adapt your work organisation in a foreign country?

He will also be joined by Managing Director of Heehaw, Mally Graveson, who will share his experience on how they attracted their first international clients, have overcome cultural differences and made their Edinburgh-based business thrive globally.
