Deborah Begbie, MA, AMIEx


I deliver export services to young and growing companies

Many of these companies have not grown to sufficient capacity to take on new market development staff, but their requirements are the same as larger companies ...

They need to target the right customer in the right market while managing impacts of costs, risks and unpredictability on their business
