Christelle Damiens, Managing Director, Exportia

Christelle Damiens founded Exportia in 2006, shortly after Christelle migrated from France to Australia. She started her career at IBM Paris looking after large corporate customers, but she decided to turn her back to a corporate career to go back to her passion for international business and to focus particularly on small businesses.
Based on her 20 years of sales experience internationally in a high tech environment, she found that small and medium sized businesses always face the same challenges. They often lack the time, financial and human resources to take the step. Following years working closely with more than hundred innovative small to medium sized companies, she now has a track record of taking businesses to their first million Euros in sales and beyond. On this journey, she has developed a 4-Step-framework and a set of tools tailored to the needs of technology companies that enable them to successfully scale in the European market.
She is a speaker and an Amazon best seller author
