Why Xportwise?

The world is bigger than your back yard, and people and companies all over the world have more in common than you might think.

We have both experienced this personally and that is why we want to share our knowledge and experience. What drives us: making SMEs successful by showing them the possibilities rather than the limitations of international entrepreneurship.

Who are we?

Xportwise is owned by Monique Harmsen and Linda van den Broek, a business expert and a business economist respectively, both specialising in export management. After working separately as independent export consultants for a number of years, we joined forces in 2012 in Xportwise. Our knowledge, skills and personalities complement each other, which can be seen in the steady growth of Xportwise. The initial focus was on training courses about exporting in particular. Now we are focusing more and more on international business development. Our customers describe us as enthusiastic, professional, accessible and knowledgeable.


Because of technical developments and faster information flows, we expect that the export landscape will keep changing, with innovation and customer focus at the centre. Being active internationally is becoming more and more necessary if you want to ensure the continuity and profitability of a company. Professionalism, innovation and the ability to switch rapidly are necessary preconditions if you want to remain successful internationally. Our knowledge and experience as international business developers are a major asset for the international growth of our customers.
