We have been to international trade shows, but nothing concrete has come from it. How can we change this?

Have you considered your preparation for meeting people at overseas trade shows? Sales Pitch workshop will sharpen your performance at trade shows, sales presentations or investor meetings. Our training session for your sales team will focus on preparing your product presentation and practising how to deliver this to an international market.

You should also assess other aspects of your pre-show preparations. Xport can help you reach out to existing contacts and potential prospects ahead of the trade show. Advising people that you are attending and arranging meetings in advance can ensure you are busy from the beginning.

My four months internship at Xport is already over, and the time has truly been flying.

Having studied here during my Bachelor degree, I felt fairly capable in dealing with Finnish people and culture, but I found that studying in an international degree program does not compare with Finns and the Finnish culture in a working environment.
