Upper Quartile has delivered training modules for Rwandan Export Advisers as part of the Export Adviser Initiative delivered by ; part of the wider TMEA project to implement an EAC Trade Promotion System.


In Rwanda the availability of qualified business consultants capable of supporting SME’s and larger companies in their export development is extremely limited. The overall objective of the Export Adviser Initiative is to build the capacity of up to 15 private sector consultants to enable them to provide export focused consultancy to existing and potential exporters. On completion of the training modules, the appropriately qualified and competent Export Advisers will work with selected companies to undertake export capacity audits, and the development of export and market entry plans for each company.


The training modules were delivered by Upper Quartile associate David Gass, as a core part of the Training Programme to be delivered to Rwanda Export Advisers under the Business Across Borders Programme, on behalf of TMEA and the Rwanda Development Board. The BAB programme itself aims to increase the number of exporting companies; and the capacity of the exporting companies in Rwanda.


The modules completed between December 2013 and January 2014, have been well received by the participants, expanding their export knowledge and awareness and have provided them with a range of simple export tools. David Gass has completed Final Report for this stage of the project and provides recommendations for the next stage of training.


David has developed, designed and delivered a wide range of export and international trade modules to companies and export advisers internationally. For more information please contact David:
