There will be a series of seven different workshops (please see flyers).
The first one (An Introduction to International Trade) will be held in Hanover, Kitchener and Thunder Bay.
The workshop is tailored to small and medium companies (SME). The workshops are sponsored by the Wood Manufacturing Council and the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry. Preference will be given to participants of the woodworking industry, however we believe we have enough seats to accommodate every interested company.
Companies, considering starting to export in the near future, as well as companies with some export experience will benefit from this workshop. The content of the workshop is industry neutral, however some of the case studies are from the woodworking and furniture industry.
The content of the Introduction course will help owners, middle management, sales, shipping and finance staff to get a better understanding and will help preventing costly mistakes.
After participating in the introductory course companies can decide on the more detailed courses held in Toronto/ GTA.
