“Working with Pernille at Kisserup was an overwhelmingly positive experience from beginning to end. She delivered a full-day FITT workshop to our students on trade compliance and kept them fully engaged throughout the day (no easy task!). The students are keen to attend another workshop facilitated by Pernille, and I’m look forward to working with her again.”
“Thank you so much for all your help. You went well beyond your responsibilities with the Caribbean Liaison program and I am so grateful. We have three Guyanese in the proposal (all curtesy of Kisserup), I have made direct contact with the High Commission, MindBloom has interviewed two people involved with the project in Guyana. I could not feel better prepared to write a competitive proposal. In addition, you have been tremendous mentors. I have learned so much! EduNova and its partners were wise to select Kisserup as Agents for the Caribbean Liaison program. I cannot think of any organization more committed to its clients!
I will think of you often when MindBloom is completing its contract work in Guyana!
With sincere gratitude”

“It has been a pleasure to work with Kisserup Consulting. Their professionalism and efficiency have been a great help in meeting project objectives and their collaborative style has been an excellent fit with our organizational culture. I would recommend their services to other businesses or organizations requiring exporting expertise.”
Bulldog Interactive Fitness Inc.
“I highly recommend Pernille Fischer Boulter for any organization in any phase of their growth.
Pernille was my coach and mentor as I grew and eventually sold my business (Bulldog Interactive Fitness). She still remains my mentor, my role model and a dear friend. There are very few opportunities in one’s life that they meet someone as trustworthy, dedicated and tenacious as Pernille Fisher-Boulter, and I am very lucky to have crossed her path.
Pernille is unique and effective in the manner that she mentors; she doesn’t necessarily GIVE her clients the answer, she teaches them to FIND the answers. She guides them and provides clarity and focus so that the client feels that they have discovered the answer on their own! She is much more than a mentor. She is a connector, a visionary and she truly cares about her clients. She mentors long after the contract is over. Your successes become her successes. Your challenges become her challenges. Pernille is an entrepreneur, and she understands the obstacles that face her clients; the empathy that she has, combined with her razor sharp instincts and business skills make her highly sought after all over the world. Pernille went above and beyond many occasions.
I will mention one (if you would like more, please contact me): My company won the Exporter of the Year Award. Pernille nominated me and encouraged me [throughout] the process. I would never have nominated our company if it were not for her. We ended up winning! Pernille walked beside me as I built the business, she was there for the panic phone calls, and she helped me maneuver through the sale of my company.
As I move on to other opportunities, Pernille continues to be my sounding board and I find myself asking, “what would Pernille say?” often. I have now started to consult and mentor small business owners, and I use Pernille as a role model to live up to. There is simply no one else like her.”
“I met Pernille in March 2008 when participating in Metaworks Inc.’s first ever trade mission. She was my mentor before, during, and after this week-long Women’s Exporter Initiative to Philadelphia and New York. Pernille leads both her team and her clients by example. Because she owns her own business, Pernille is not “just” a consultant, but was able to relate to Metaworks’ day-to-day operations and priorities. She continually challenged my assumptions and approach, forcing me to analyze and modify behavior. She emphasized practice, process and role playing as means to unleash creativity.
Pernille combines a keen academic mind with hands-on experience. She is the antithesis of staid and stuffy, yet shows tremendous discipline and attention to detail. During our planning sessions, her focus was 100% on my company and deliverables, drawing on her considerable international experience and real-life examples to guide, bully, and cajole me to improve my sales message and delivery.
Pernille exudes a raw energy that is contagious. Her keen sense of humour and quick wit made learning fun, during even the most frustrating sessions. She is generous with her time and takes delight in making business and community connections. This is a woman who continues to make a positive impact on our community personally and professionally.”
World Trade Centre – Nova Scotia, Canada
“Working with Pernille and her team has been of invaluable help in the WTCAC’s efforts to promote international trade training and programs. Leads, promotion of courses and marketing tips were freely offered without remuneration. As a WTCAC member she has also worked tirelessly to promote our organization.
Pernille’s wealth of education, knowledge and experience, and her understanding of domestic and international markets, has consistently provided our clients with excellent export mentoring and course facilitation.”
“First of all I would say the session is enlightening and inspiring to the point where I can see where the scope for business is much greater.”
“Kisserup has been instrumental in developing the export potential of our organization. From identification of potential opportunities, to facilitating communications, to developing a strategy and helping to negotiate the deal;
Pernille’s high energy, network, experience, and focus has ensured our success.
Their services have provided unquestionable value and lasting results for our company.”
Trade Commissioner of Denmark
“Pernille has a rare ability to find opportunity where nobody else sees it. I have had the pleasure of developing various projects with Pernille and her company Kisserup International Trade Roots. Her energy and value oriented contribution is an asset to any project.”
Caribbean Export Development Agency
“Pernille is a fresh breath, a visionary, a motivator and champion for every new and existing entrepreneur. A person that has the incredible capability to earn your trust, listen very well and give you the feeling as an entrepreneur and as a person that you are able to overcome those hurdles in your business life. I have known Pernille over the last 2 years and had felt from the beginning that I was dealing with an honest person. Pernille, you have no idea how extremely rare this is these days. [You] started off as my client and we quickly developed a good friendship [as] I noticed her passion in helping others in developing themselves. I would therefore recommend Pernille wholeheartedly to everyone….she is a good person!!”
STR Management Consulting
“The Kisserup team provided exceptional service during the duration of the assignment including post follow-up activities which was not part of the contract. I would recommend to any exporter to consider using the services of Kisserup International Trade Roots, in its international market intelligence gathering process.”

“I am pleased to say that Northern Lights exceeded its objectives it had set for its attendance at CREF, and its success was directly attributable to the tenacity and grace shown by both Kisserup and ACOA. Thanks!!”
“Kisserup did a wonderful job of organizing the CREF trade mission once again. The quality of meetings and professionalism of staff made this another positive experience in our International Development line of business. Kisserup has been a tremendous resource and has broken down many barriers that would have been encountered.”
Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC)
“Emily and Pernille did an amazing job at coordinating and re-scheduling our meetings in a very last-minute-change type of event 🙂 They were genuinely concerned every day, that we met the right contacts at the right time so we were able to make the most out of each meeting. Thanks Pernille and Emily for your warm and personalized (that’s how we felt it) support!”

“Kisserup did an absolutely outstanding job of meeting our needs and making our experience truly exceptional.
