ASBA Helping to Take Small Business Global

 

Phoenix, AZ – The Arizona Small Business Association (ASBA) is excited to host their next Arizona Speaks event, presenting, “Increase Sales & Profits, Going Global with Exporting.”  With 95% of the world’s consumers living outside the United States, it is crucial for small business owners to become knowledgeable about exportation and the great advantage it can have for their business.

Dawn Nagle, Executive Director of Metro Phoenix Export Alliance (MPEXA), comments “We already know that companies utilizing exporting are 8.5% less likely to go out of business and workers in these jobs receive 18% higher wages.  That’s quite significant.  We’ve reached a point where business owners need to not only be more aware of  opportunities available to them, but to actually utilize them to their full success.”

Sponsored by SRP and MPEXA, the event will include breakfast and a panel discussion on June 16th with four top business professionals and experts on the MPEXA network of resources, US government assistance in identifying new markets and international buyers, financial protection on foreign currency fluctuations and financing options, and how AZ based Able Aerospace went from small, to large, to acquisition via exporting services. 

Panelists:

Dawn Nagle, Executive Director, Metro Phoenix Export Alliance

Kristian Richardson, Director, U.S. Commercial Service Export, Assistance Centers

Lee Benson, Chief Executive Officer, Able Engineering & Execute to Win

Mark A. Roberts, VP, Specialty Banking Services Alliance, Bank of Arizona
