Over the workshop, you will learn which questions to ask to navigate the pathway to international expansion and understand, with confidence, what is required to access over 98% of the global markets that exist outside of Australia. By discussion with leading subject matter experts, you will be able to explore strategically whether this is the right time to grow your business internationally and, if so, where to expand globally and how to do it. Individuals will be directly connected with government agency teams to access free government services in Australia and the UK to optimise government grants to part-fund your international expansion, including capturing all grants available in FY 2019.
