Lisa Smyth from SheSaid Design said:
“We found the Export Services Hub Programme to be really insightful. It let us see how we can engage with United Kingdom (UK) and Republic of Ireland (ROI) markets for the services we provide. We established two priority sectors to target and through the research and sales prospecting provided, it identified a number of customers willing to engage with us.”

Damien Maddalena from Elucidate Consultancy said:
“The Export Services Hub Programme is excellent with a focus on practical commercial application rather than just business theory. Tools, advice and tips are provided to develop a working action plan during the programme.
In addition, the hands-on support and one-to-one mentoring is highly valuable to growing the business. The assistance with sales prospecting and cold-calling really helps to put the plan into action and provides confidence to those of us who find this part of the sales process difficult.”
