Four days to go before GlobalLinker’s biggest international event for entrepreneurs! But you would probably wonder, ‘why would I even bother to go to Singapore and attend TradeConnect?’
You might be busy growing your business, meeting customers’ demands, managing your team, but attending an international conference like TradeConnect where you get to meet entrepreneurs from India and ASEAN, and listen to reputable business leaders, is something that can take your business to its next level.
If you’re still asking, ‘what’s in it for me?’ Here are what other entrepreneurs are saying about TradeConnect:
“Trade Connect event opened my eyes to the endless growth opportunities outside of the Philippines. Cross border growth is the only way to go to help our economy!” Audrey Regis, owner of Audrey’s Confectioneries.
From being a delegate last year, Audrey is now one of the speakers for this year’s TradeConnect, sharing her business journey for the first time on an international platform. She’s also encouraging business owners to create innovative products that can cater to customers not just in the Philippines, but also worldwide. “The end goal is to have international standards (for your product) and not just local!”
“This event has moved and motivated me to aim and work harder on creating a better platform for my business. I did not just gain knowledge and experience, but I also gained new friends who have encouraged and influenced me to grow as an individual and as an entrepreneur.” Stefanie Sison Laurian, Proprietor, Mananam Food Products.

“My major takeaway from this event is that we should not be afraid of the dynamics of technology. And that business progress is directly with innovation,” Stefanie added. Going digital and utilizing the dynamics of technology are no longer options, but a necessity to grow your business, learning how to maximize the power of automation and online marketing to your business advantage.
