Training & Knowledge Transfer

 Training and Advisory Services to help navigate today’s complex business climate

In today’s complex and increasingly competitive business climate, many companies are confronted with the need to expand into new areas, be it for critical supply of resources or to access new high-growth emerging markets.  As companies pivot to emerging markets, executives constantly grapple with a dearth of information about many of these frontier markets.  Acquiring critical, timely and actionable information is important for business growth and continuity.

 In response to this growing business need, Devconia offers a series of timely mission-critical in-house training seminars delivered to executives charged with managing new markets and regions as well as to expats transferred to these markets.  Follow-on strategic advisory services are also offered to assist with effective implementation and execution of a variety of initiatives along with facilitating local stakeholder engagement.
