"Towards the middle of last year I attended your import export course. In less than a year I have been able to improve our bottom line by $100k by applying the knowledge I gained and by improving our processes. Needless to say, this is quite a good return for a few hundred dollars and a few evenings!"
"A great course, so much for one day...Corinne made sense of those strange terms FOB, DDP and now we ship all around the globe. I also met many interesting people in the course who were also trying to make sense of the complexities of importing and exporting"
"Thank you for the one day Seminar in Import/export; It was thoroughly enjoyable and I learnt so much"
"The course and the book together with Corinne’s knowledge was so valuable to our business in trying to start import and export from scratch, we now use her book as the office bible. It answers all questions necessary to do it right the first time."
