exportise advises, trains, consults with and directly assists companies that want to take the first steps into exporting or to build on existing export success.

We are



We are a sales- focused company that brings together the collective experiences of those that have already done it. With a growing track record, we work with business owners, CEOs and sales directors every day providing assistance in all aspects of generating new business abroad and increasing their export sales capabilities.



Selling and marketing to clients in export markets presents specific challenges and risks. Exportise believes that many excellent Irish companies are underachieving in or simply not engaging with export markets due to a lack of specialised sales and marketing know how. Exportise attempts to fill this gap.



Exportise is a member of Enterprise Ireland’s expert consulting panel for export sales and marketing best practice and has also been engaged by EI to deliver their “Excel at Export Selling – sales pipeline management” training programme. We have excellent relationships with Enterprise Ireland, both in Ireland and the international network, and advise our clients on how best to access Enterprise Ireland’s financial and non-financial supports.



Exportise advises, trains and consults with Irish SMEs through a professional, hands-on business development approach to generate profitable sales in export markets. Exportise is a practical, cost effective and professional way to help clients take the first steps in exporting or to help them build quickly on existing export successes.

core team

Paddy Lyons

Managing Director

Established Exportise in 2010 to bring his own practical export sales and marketing knowhow to Irish businesses. He is himself a multiple business owner and has been selling professionally in a business-to-business environment for more than 20 years, most of that in export markets.

Paddy holds an MBA from Dublin City University and has held senior positions both in Ireland and abroad for subsidiaries of large Irish multinationals. Most recently he was European Sales Director of a major Irish recruitment company since 2002, launching and managing their European business activities and helping to double their turnover to more than €120 million per annum.

Paddy has seen what it takes to build a profitable export business. Starting a network from scratch, learning the business culture, developing a successful value proposition, learning the key sales messages, effectively managing a sales pipeline and closing the deal – he has done it.

This process takes time, effort and resources. Paddy has created Exportise to assist companies to accelerate that process and increase their export sales.
