Another amazing opportunity for our Business Members with the return of the Brazilian Consulting Project & a new Indian Consulting Project for 2012/2013.

You may recall the amazing Brazilian Marketing Consulting Project we ran in conjunction with the University of Sydney late last year. The program was an amazing success, with five of our members being selected by the University of Sydney to benefit from a comprehensive consulting project on their business expansion plans into Brazil. As one of the companies participating in the project reported:

“I wish to take this opportunity to thank you, The University of Sydney and the Australian Institute of Export (now Export Council of Australia!) for supporting the Marine Industry and in particular our company in providing a research team and a market entry analysis for Brazil. From the outset in October 2011, the team showed enthusiasm with a “WOW” factor. With a little encouragement and the invitation to visit our factory soon created a positive approach for this extraordinary challenge.”

The Export Council of Australia will once again be teaming up with the University of Sydney to undertake similar research projects for our business members in 2012/2013 and this time we will also be including India.

Details of the project

The University of Sydney leads a delegation of Masters Students to both the Brazilian and Indian Markets as part of an executive masters program. The purpose of their market visit is to undertake a comprehensive report on the market as well undertake a specific market entry project for companies looking to expand their operations into either India or Brazil.

Through the Export Council of Australia’s partnership with the University of Sydney, we are seeking expressions of interest from our members who are interested in participating in the FREE consultancy project, the opportunity is open to all industry sectors but the company must be a member of our organisation.

The delegation will consist of a combination of both marketing specialists and general/ strategic management specialists. So, this is a wonderful opportunity for a small company to benefit from a free tailored market consulting project on either India or Brazil.
