Being Best in the World

Best in the world is an approach to market entry that recognizes that competition is truly global and any new offering you create must be the best in the world to compete successfully. Buyers can access any product or service from anywhere in the world. In this session, Andrew describes how to become the best in the world and make yours the best choice for them.

Moving into a new geography or new vertical is not for the faint of heart. In this interactive session Andrew explains the 13 major steps to ensure expansion success.

For over 30 years Andrew has consulted hundreds of manufacturers to enter and expand in North America.


You can't penetrate a market with a catalogue of stuff. You have to focus. Most companies serve a local market with a wide range of products and services. You are winning business based on customer proximity. That won't work 5000 km away. Pick the one or maybe two things you are really, really good at – potentially the world's best.…And then you have to test to see if that's true.

The challenge is to match the thing that you are best in the world at, with  the market that needs it most.

Essentially your market position:

  • What do you do
  • Who do you do it for
  • Who else can do it
  • Why would they choose you
