The Trinidad and Tobago Coalition of Services Industries would like to take this opportunity to invite you to register for our upcoming Training Programme Services Go Global—Business and Professional Services which is scheduled to take place on September 20, 21 and 22, 2019
Services Go Global was developed by the Global Coalition of Services for regional Coalition of Services Industries. The advent of globalization and technology has made it possible for small service providers across all services sectors to export their services. Services play a crucial role in the development of the Economies in CARIFORUM, not just as a sector but also due to the significant impact on other sectors such as the manufacturing sector. TTCSI is committed to the development of the Trinidad and Tobago’s services sector and it is hoped that firms large and small capitalise upon this opportunity to build their capacity to take advantage of the CARIFORUM-EU EPA and better integrate into the global economy.
This programme is offered according to services sector as follows; Business Services, Construction & Related Engineering Services, Environmental Services, Financial Services, Health & Related Social Services, Tourism & Travel Related Services and Recreational, Cultural & Sporting Services.
Export-readiness is the ultimate objective, as participants are guided through a 4-stage Roadmap, which covers 4 key areas:
- “Stage 1, Preparing Your Business”, which looks at understanding trade in services, assessing export-readiness and developing an export plan;
- “Stage 2, Conducting Market Research”including researching markets, sectors and gathering market intelligence;
- “Stage 3, Developing a Marketing Strategy”including starting a marketing plan, developing an online strategy and winning business; and
- “Stage 4, Entering the Market”which reviews market entry options, financing, getting paid and also contracting and legal aspects associated with exporting services.
In 2019 for the first time, participants will be eligible, upon successful completion of the course to compete for the Lawrence Placide Services Go Global Award .
