FOREIGN INVESTMENT STRATEGY
With an estimated 10,000 investment promotion agencies operating around the globe, it is essential to identify a competitive edge when trying to attract overseas businesses. We have worked in and with multiple investment agencies to develop and promote an effective sector and market approach to attract and retain FDI.
FDI LEAD GENERATION
Lead Generation can be time consuming and resource intensive and deliver poor returns if not carried out effectively. We understand the most persuasive and productive ways of developing a strong investment pipeline. We can also utilise a network of associates in key markets to support targeted lead generation campaigns.
John Rutherford Consulting has the experience and understanding of what a company’s key location determinants are when considering international expansion and can develop bespoke value propositions to address these needs.
INTERNATIONAL TRADE SUPPORT
Through an international network of trade and investment associates we have the experience and resource capability to assist businesses in targeting and entering new markets. This includes providing cultural and business protocol support.
Working closely with the client, we develop bespoke inward investment training programmes drawing on our experience and understanding of the current FDI climate. Recent training modules have covered:
- Client-centric Investment Promotion Activities
- Account Management
- Proposition Development
- Investment Marketing
- Cultural and Business Protocols in Developing Markets
