Saudi Arabia and Bahrain
27th November - 1st December 2016
At the end of November 2016 we took 18 delegates to meet potential customers in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. We did mixture of group meetings with local companies, business-to-business networking and taster training events, where delegates had a chance to showcase a short taster training session. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with 50% of delegates saying they made more than 10 connections to follow up with and estimated business wins of £50,000 on average.
“I found the mission a fantastic way of getting into companies that otherwise would have taken a while to get into. The strength of the contacts met was great - these are the people you want to talk to.” Matthew Scott, Anglo-Continental
“[The masterclasses were] just what we needed - it is hard for people to understand what we do unless we do it - this gave us a good opportunity - the most useful part of the trip” Tim Deighton, Maximising Learning
