Upcoming #TradeElite networking session & recap of how to get more SMEs involved in export



Tradeelite-AprilWe’ll soon be hosting our third installment of our #TradeElite  Twitter chat, getting international business professionals talking about the issues that matter in global trade today. During our last chat, Doug Taylor, CITP, led us in a discussion on how to get more SMEs involved in export. We had some great tips from our expert international panel, as well as some thought-provoking questions and input from SMEs.

Our upcoming #TradeElite chat will focus on a topic that is vital for succeeding in international trade: profit margins. Price your product too high and you might not have a competitive edge on the global stage. Set your price too low and your export endeavors might turn out to be more effort than they’re worth. 

Have experience in this area, have questions about pricing your product or service for foreign market, or just curious about the topic? Join us for some great discussion, knowledge-sharing and networking!
