Planning for Export Success – Oil and Gas
27 January 2017

Then Planning for Export Success - with a Peer-Group of ambitious HIE Oil & Gas supply chain businesses – is scheduled for early 2017. This programme is open to Highlands and Islands companies and is fully funded by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (with funding from the European Regional Development Fund)*.

The programme is targeted at companies that are now ready to take on the challenge of developing new business in export markets (or to introduce greater strategy & structure to the export steps already taken) – and that want to develop the export capability, and a plan - to grow business in international markets.

How your company can benefit?

  • Greater appreciation of the capabilities and resources needed to export successfully – and to sustain that success in international markets;
  • An understanding of how market research can be used to screen and select the right export markets – and the right route to market (tapping into the research being published by HIE and SDI on 1st Nov 2016);
  • Guidance on how to develop your company's business model, value proposition, and route to market strategy - for export markets;
  • Support with the development of an action plan for the growth of new international business.
