We specialise in helping ASEAN and Australian SMEs, and multinational companies to develop their international business – trade and investment – across the ASEAN and Australia region.

We also help institutions like governments, universities and international development organisations to improve the international trade and investment environments across ASEAN and Australia for business.

We have worked with senior executives, ministers, diplomats, heads of agencies and leading educators who have trusted us to help improve the growth and performance of their organisations. Along the way, we’ve built good relationships and shared in their confidence of being better positioned for success.



We help businesses enter and grow in local and regional markets across ASEAN and Australia.

Our SME clients are concerned about how to operate across borders, while multinational clients want to understand local markets and business environments.

For new international markets, most businesses need help to :

  • Find and build relationships with partners
  • Access and understand market data and regulations
  • Understand and adapt to business practices and cultures
  • Design and implement business models relevant for the market

This is the heart of what we do. We help businesses, particularly SMEs discover, understand and adapt when entering and growing in markets across ASEAN and Australia. We focus on strategy, connections, bridge-building and implementation, and are rigorous in our research, analysis, planning and project management.

Services to businesses include:

  • Assessing market feasibility for target initiatives
  • Identifying commercial opportunities and developing business cases
  • Establishing B2B relationships and arrangements in new markets
  • Connecting and negotiating with key market players and decision-makers
  • Linking to regional value chains
  • Developing business plans and establishing new ventures
  • Re-engineering business models and practices for new markets
  • Developing and implementing new market entry strategies
  • Building the strategic and operational performance of a business to capture international growth
  • Engaging with governments to address regulatory and policy concerns affecting the business
  • Building international trade and investment capabilities of management through training

Our business clients include ASEAN and Australian SMEs and multinational companies.
