I wish this program was available many years ago. Learning best practices, hints and tips would have saved us time and money instead of going through costly trial and error.

The International e-Commerce Essentials workshop provided valuable insight for our branding and export teams. The presentations were interesting and the speakers were engaging. We learned a lot and would recommend this program to any small or medium business looking to get into international e-commerce.
I really enjoyed the ICE Program. It's a lot to take in, but the marketing advice was extremely helpful in preparing our marketing plan for the year. We have gone back over the slides many times and keep finding it more and more valuable!
