Export business has become highly imperative for any business who constantly pay bills to partners abroad in foreign currency and wants to survive in developing countries (like Nigeria) who often have shortage of of foreign exchange.
To overcome this foreign exchange challenge in a sustainable manner, importers, manufacturers and service providers that constantly need to pay bills foreign exchange need to put in place a strategy to generate their own foreign exchange. One of the viable way to do this is to setup an arm of the business that will run the export business.
However, since the business is new to this sector, there is need for capacity building to develop the skill and competence of the staff that run the export business. In addition to this, they also need a form of handholding to be able to overcome the teething problems that new businesses face in this terrain. This can be called an Export Mentoring Programme.
3T Impex Export Mentoring Programme (also known as from export novice to export legend) is designed for those that are entirely new and therefore know next to nothing in the export business. It involves handholding the clients as an export novice and working with the client until the company becomes an export legend.
Through this service, such an individual or a company is trained to acquire the necessary skills and competence in export business management. This is done using the curriculum of the Diploma in Export Business Management from the American Institute of Extended Studies.
In addition to the capacity building programme, the export mentoring programme among other things also covers products development and branding, linkage to manufacturers, export market development, packaging development, export costing and pricing plus logistics and supply chain management.
