Shaping Business Success in the New Decade
Workshop Series Starts Thursday, Feb. 17

SHAPING BUSINESS SUCCESS IN THE NEW DECADE Workshop Series kicks off with “Exporting 101: Marketing Your Business Internationally”.  The workshop will be held on Thursday, Feb. 17, 2011, at the Bucks County Community College, Upper Bucks Campus, in Perkasie.  Networking and registration begins at 8:00 a.m., and the program begins promptly at 8:15 a.m. and concludes at 10:30 a.m.

According to the federal Commerce Department, only 1% of all U.S. businesses actually export, and of those that do, 58% export to just one country. Small businesses with a website are already exposed internationally, but they may not know the benefits of exporting. To get Bucks County businesses to think globally, the following panel of expert speakers will present on how to sell your products and services in the international market, and address the following topics:

  • Brian Thomas, Global Marketing Associates/Bucks County International Trade Council Representative: Developing a Marketing Strategy for the Global Marketplace
  • Jack Capers, International Sales Account Manager, UPS: Logistics and Documents to Move Your Product Worldwide
  • Louis Tierno, Letter of Credit Trade Officer, Fulton Bank: Understanding International Banking Tools
  • Jason Martineau, International Sales Manager, Penn Stainless Products: Case Study

Pre-registration is requested due to limited seating; there is no charge to attend the event.  To register for the workshop, contact the County of Bucks Business Development Administrator, Sonia Smith, at 215-345-3839 or at srsmith@co.bucks.pa.us.
