Who are we?

About Us

We provide creative solutions to clients around the world,
creating business development programmes and events that are meaningful and that get attention.


ExportExplore was established by Declan Barry following a decade of experience in various roles within the economic development industry, with experience working in North America, Europe and Asia

ExportExplore aims to develop simple, but highly effective programmes that create networks, build confidence and grow capability among SMEs, as well as delivering real, commercial results that can be measured in dollars and cents. These results can also be extended to the private sector, working to support the design and building of high performing sales teams.
