Upper Quartile, a partner of the WYG Group of companies, delivers international, business and economic development strategic consultancy services to inform and support key decision making for a range of private and public sector clients.
Our experts currently deliver two main frameworks as sole supplier for Scottish Enterprise/Highlands & Islands Enterprise and Scottish Development International (SDI).
- SDI Technical Enquiries – we deal with export technical enquiries from companies referred to us from across Scotland by SDI’s team of export advisers and account managers. Enquiries relate to regulations or issues companies deal with in exporting their goods and services abroad ranging from export documentation, logistics and labelling to dual use items and for example registration through the FDA for the US market. We have dealt with around 1,200 technical enquiries from over 900 Scottish companies over the last 4 years.
- Preparing to Export Introductory Workshops – these are commissioned by SDI and then designed and delivered over either 1, 2 or 3 days to groups of up to 10 companies who are considering or relatively new to exporting. Workshops can be sector specific or more generic but each workshop will provide the participating companies with an export action plan to take back into their business. We have also delivered workshops for tourism companies developing their international visitor markets as well as specific textiles and food and drink export workshops.
