With more than forty years’ experience in the field under his belt, author Marvin Hough has long found himself answering the questions of young professionals—including his students and mentees—about international trade, particularly concerning how to get established. With thirty years as a trade practitioner and ten in international business teaching and mentoring, this is no wonder. As President of his international business consulting firm, MIRA and a member of the Forum for International Trade Training and the Canadian International Council, few are as well-positioned as Hough to author a practical guide such as this—the first of many books he hopes to write on the subject. His passion and expertise drive him both in writing about and working in the field. Hough lives in Ottawa, Ontario with his spouse Genoveva. Interested in getting in touch?
