UC Sets Trading Records In Last
IRTA's Universal Currency has been on its new customized software
system for three months, and in each month on the new system we have
set an all-time trading record. Total trading for the three month
period, August through October of 2015, usage was up 39% over that
same period of 2014.
Trading is expected to continue to
increase even more as UC members add more listings to the UC
marketplace. IRTA Executive Director Ron Whitney thanks all their
members for helping make the last three months the most successful
in Universal Currency’s seventeen-year history!

Let's Talk About Offset In Asia,
The Middle East, And Africa
ECCO's next symposium in London from18 to 19 November, brings
together offset authorities and experts from various regions, and
will use a case study as a basis to discuss offset business. New

Experts from the following countries will

at DLA Piper’s offices in London, U.K.
Forum — Wednesday
Offset authorities from the United Arab Emirates
have been invited, and South Korea, Malaysia, Australia and South
Africa have confirmed participation. The forum provides the
opportunity to obtain up-to-date information on the countries'
offset policies and regulations. The ECCO annual dinner will be held
Wednesday evening, hosted by DLA Piper.
The director of the United Kingdom's Defense and
Security Industrial Engagement Policy (DSIEP), Mr. Fabrizio Harley,
will deliver the keynote address; sharing experiences in
implementing the new DSIEP policy in the UK. This workshop is unique
in that it will bring together a set of specialists, who will
discuss a fictitious offset deal.
The expert speakers will
give the audience tips and advice relating to successful
negotiation. Every aspect of an offset contract will be covered:
legal, insurance, technology transfer, training, localization,
compliance, and types of offset. Both days will end with a round
table during which delegates can air their views and ask questions,
and there are enough networking breaks to discuss compliance.

Your Guard Down On Sales!

→Understand the client mind-set. Even though
companies on a calendar year budget may be near or at the end of
their ability to spend money, think ahead. Counteract this objection
by offering to defer billing for sales booked in December.
→Deem December "customer appreciation month." The holidays are a
fine time to check in with all your customers to say "hi," wish them
a good season, and thank them for their business. Provide a small
gift or scrip to valued clients — it's an excellent way to get an
audience in a hectic month.
→Offer discounts and barter
incentives to new clients. Launch a strong offer to close new
business deals before December 31, by including special pricing and
barter offers. You can thus get a leg-up on the conventional
