Every year, candidates in every state are nominated for the International Advancing Trade Award. Those that are selected have proven themselves to be exceptionally dedicated to getting involved in exporting and importing, and educating small business in their intricacies. As the Connecticut winner of this prestigious award, Jacqui will be honored at the 29th Annual NASBITE International Conference in Rhode Island on April 8th, 2016.
Jacqui cites her NASBITE membership and Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) certification as proof of her dedication to providing the best possible advising services for her CTSBDC clients. “NASBITE is a great networking group, because it lets me work with other advisors that specialize in international trade,” Jacqui says. “Because of this group, I can keep my knowledge up to date, and quickly learn about new things in the international trade scene so that I can constantly provide the best information and advising to small business owners.”
