John Wiley Spiers

John's communication skills, ideas, experience, handouts were exceptional. This armed me with reality about (the) business...this class was better than the two years I spent getting my MBA.

I ran global product management, marketing and sales operations for several Silicon-Valley based, high-tech companies. Even with that experience, I learned more about international trade in your one-day course than in the last 25 years. It was fantastic!

Keith Blackey, San Mateo. CA

Great - done with humor and realistic information. The combination with excellent organization indicates a great teacher.

You’ll Go Straight to the Customers.

You will access forty years experience in small business international trade, a decade working for others and learning and thirty years self-employed. Everything I have to teach and all I have written may be had at no cost, where it costs me nothing for you to have it.  Bootleggy versions of my live courses are up on and my books are free to read on GoogleBooks here and here.  Somebody has put my seminar manuals up there as well.  Enjoy!

Live courses I teach, face-to-face and live online through schools, cost is whatever the schools charge.  Click for more info
