ABTS® Mentorship Program

After receiving many, many requests for mentorship, ABTS® is offering a one-off group mentoring program, limited to five delegates.

Program Aim

The purpose of the program is to help small companies/individuals/self-employed, involved in importing and exporting (mainly freight forwarders and import-export agents), to:

  • Gain an understanding of the most important fundamentals of your business
  • Answer questions about your business or international trade procedure
  • Analyse and solve current problems and issues
  • Analyse where risks and vulnerabilities are in your current business plan
  • Foresee and solve any future problems and/or issues in order to eliminate stressful, costly and time-consuming mistakes
  • Learn how grow business over the medium term
  • Learn what steps to take in order to strengthen your business
  • Learn as a group from the problems and issues others face in the real-world and how to solve/handle these issues

Delegates will likely be set personal tasks each week as an action-plan, based on the needs of delegate’s business aims and goals.

Benefit from Alan’s thirty-five years practical knowledge in international trade, setup and sale of his own freight forwarding company and through cross-dialog with fellow delegates.
