Agriculture Going Global Workshops

Agriculture Going Global Workshops, developed by CAHRC, in partnership with the Forum for International Trade Training (FITT), are designed to help individuals and organizations make crucial exporting decisions, avoid common pitfalls and increase their understanding of international trade and foreign markets. Agriculture Going Global workshops can be delivered by export service providers, educational institutions, industry associations, and private companies.

Delivering a Going Global Workshop

Each 3-hour workshop is designed to be delivered in a classroom setting. This is best accomplished if the facilitator focusses on the requirements of the group as a whole, and stresses that the participants can read the Agriculture Going Global participant manual at their leisure. The workshops can be delivered in monthly meetings, as in-house training seminars and as conference breakout sessions. 

In addition, the Going Global participant manuals may be purchased for use as a supplementary text for courses that touch on the various subjects related to international trade.

CAHRC will arrange a facilitator and supply participant manuals for organizations wishing to conduct an Agriculture Going Global workshop. Please contact CAHRC for more information about costs and options.
