The opportunities available in the export market are growing at a rapid rate and now is the time to position your business for success.
Taking the first step into the global marketplace can be daunting, but the Export Ready Course provides a solid foundation in which to start.
That is why the MIW METS SME Export Hub offers this course at various stages throughout the year to ensure local METS businesses (and other businesses servicing the resources sector) are ahead of the game and ready to act when the opportunities arise.
In a recent survey by Austmine of Australian METS businesses, Queensland generated one of the highest export revenue figures ($5 billion) from minerals and mining activities. This represents an increase from previous years and demonstrates the growing opportunities in the export space.
So if you're looking to improve your prospects in the export market, the Export Ready Course is a great place to start. Participants will learn how to successfully take their businesses global, learn from other METS businesses already exporting, build an export business plan, and participate in a digital workshop to help develop and deliver their business pitches.
The Export Ready Course is delivered in four ways:
1. Export Council of Australia’s Growing a Global Business On-Line Course: This course will cover everything you need to know in order to successfully take your business global.
2. Mentoring provided by experienced exporter: This experienced presenter will relate the online information back to local examples. In this case, Australian METS businesses exporting to the world. The presenter will also use this time with participants to build an export business plan.
3. Export Council of Australia’s handbook: This is an invaluable tool for any business that is looking to export, or is currently exporting, and will be a good back-up tool for participants while completing the online course.
4. Promoting your Business in the Digital Age workshop: A vital part of the Export Ready Course is developing and delivering your business pitch. The business landscape has changed dramatically in the past few months but businesses still have to find a way of creating awareness of their products and turning that into sales. This is a recorded workshop and is conducted by leading presenter Andrew Klein.
COST: $220 including GST per participant (normally $2200)
