INTERNATIONAL CONTACT BUSINESS
Liberalisation, ever-expanding trade agreements and increased globalisation have changed the way in which companies operate. New markets have made investments accessible to individuals and organisations that do not necessarily have the knowledge, cross-cultural relations or high-profile network to penetrate them.
Rather than fostering international networks, these small, locally-based organisations are focused at a regional or national level. More often than not, they don’t have the necessary direct networks required to open doors and fast-track various processes, or the time and funds to develop the skills required to build these relationships. Instead, they are forced to create potentially damaging alliances and partnerships with other governments and other ruling entities.
ICB recognises this problem – and acts as the solution. With a reputable track record and exclusive sources around the globe, ICB woks with companies, governments, investors and institutions to avoid the pitfalls of a new and challenging market, offering expertise in the various cultural realms and relations of international business.

APPROACH
An ICB Contact Partner builds up a pool of service providers bespoke to a client’s requirements. The database of available contacts is continually updated, designed to reflect some of the most exclusive and desirable business and financial networks in the world. Service providers, government officials, corporate contacts and various personal contacts are placed at a client’s fingertips, allowing for fast, effective work on an international level.

The service can include outlining and drafting of projects, preparation for meetings that require dedicated knowledge of culturally diverse or volatile regions, bringing together clients and service providers or presenting clients with suitable and reliable investment opportunities.

– Working with ICB

ICB offers personal, highly reliable relationships with influencers ranging from CEOs, to tastemakers, to Royalty. An initial, non-refundable, non-negotiable fee is due immediately after an initial meeting for the development of any subsequent steps.

– The Contact Partner

The Contact Partner is a contractor working for one or more clients, placing contracts with service providers and is remunerated with a margin between the client’s and the service provider’s fees. Alternatively, with the client’s permission, the Contact Partner sells or auctions a specific project to a team, individual, government entity or investment pool. In addition, two or more clients can be mutual service providers. The remuneration charged depends on the financial benefits achieved and should be paid in equal parts.

– Flat rate

The Contact Partner should only become involved commercially in the client’s financing activities or management in exceptional cases that will be reviewed carefully and individually.
Fees are charged according to expenses or as a flat-rate, to be discussed on a case by base basis and any travel or other incurring expenses must be reimbursed in full.
