Bisnis Asia

An essential skill for trade

When preparing to enter a new overseas market, many businesses overlook a skill that will help them when it comes to reducing frictional cost – the cost of having to deal with unexpected issues that use up time and money. Helen and Brett talk about the new online course on the skill of cultural capability so that exporters can better sell themselves and their business.

Do business. Like a local

We saw first-hand that businesses hit problems not imagined when going into a different market. And this was often because they were doing business their way, not the local way.

Applying a way of doing business that is successful in only one market leads to mistakes, wrong assumptions and frustration, which then puts a drain on time and resources.  

We’ve taken our live sessions to create practical online learning and mentoring in developing skills to maximise business relationships.  We can help you to do business, like a local.
