“The eight weeks with TFSA have been an eye opener on establishing whether my business is export ready, from learning about Incoterms to risks associated with exporting and how to mitigate these risks. I mostly enjoyed that the content was relatable, and I look forward to taking advantage and putting into practice all the knowledge I have gained.”
