How confident do you feel using the Incoterms® rules? Do you feel comfortable advising your clients or colleagues in other departments? Can you explain the rules to them in simple terms?

Perhaps you have a solid understanding of the Incoterms® rules. You know the definitions and can recite the contractual obligations off by heart but still have some niggling questions or concerns. Or maybe you’re just not sure your understanding is 100% up to date since the launch of the Incoterms® 2020 at the start of this year.

And when you do have concerns or questions, where do you go for answers?

We know that many of our Incoterms® 2020 Certificate students don’t have many people they can talk to internally. They are often the people giving advice and don’t have a sounding board within their own organisation. There are few people who have the authority and experience to answer their questions.

ICC Academy’s Live Masterclasses are designed to provide that sounding board by giving you direct access to highly experienced ICC experts. Even after taking our courses, we know that people still have questions and there is always room to improve your understanding of important topics. Especially when it comes to the Incoterms® rules.

That’s why we are delighted to announce our new 2.5 hour live question and answer session on the Incoterms® rules with Bob Ronai, a member of the ICC Incoterms 2020® Drafting Group. Walk away with a renewed sense of clarity and confidence about using the rules.

Imagine the difference it could make getting clearer and more confident about using the Incoterms® rules.

If you understood the rules fully up front, how much time and money could that save you?

You could start sharing your knowledge and experience with younger staff (and feel confident that it’s accurate advice).

You could gain the confidence to question whether other people were using the rules correctly.

You could become the resident expert on the Incoterms® rules within your own company – commanding more respect from your clients, colleagues and even senior management.

How valuable would it be to sit down (via video) for a few hours with one of the world’s foremost experts of the Incoterms® rules and ask them your most important questions? Someone who was directly involved in creating the latest edition of the rules, the Incoterms® 2020?

Well, on 29 July, you can do just that.

Who is Bob Ronai?

Bob Ronai was the first Australian and one of only three non-lawyers on the Incoterms® 2020 Drafting Group. He also manages the LinkedIn Incoterms® group with over twenty thousand members and was a member of the committee which wrote the “ICC Guide on Transport and the Incoterms® 2010 Rules”. He has just finished extensively updating this book for the 2020 rules.

There are very few people better qualified to teach you about the practical application of the Incoterms® rules.

What will the Masterclass cover?

This Masterclass has two parts: a live 2.5 hour Q&A session on 29 July and 10 pre-recorded video presentations from Bob Ronai on how to use the Incoterms® rules in the real world.

Here’s what each part of the Masterclass will cover.

Live Q&A – 29 July

During the Live Q&A session we will cover questions for each of the 11 rules in the Incoterms® 2020, one by one.

You will be able to submit your questions in advance, and we will gauge the most popular questions and manage time and expectations accordingly. We will also have our chat line open for further questions during the session and we will try to work through as many as we can.

We expect to allocate the first two hours to the any mode/s rules, working through from EXW to DDP, before covering the maritime rules in the last half hour.

In this session, Mr Ronai won’t just tell you what is in the Incoterms® 2020 book, but what each rule and article means and how it works in the real world – or maybe how it doesn’t work!

Video Presentations (pre-recorded)

Immediately after registering you will be sent the 10 pre-recorded video  presentations (including slides), all prepared by our expert trainer Bob Ronai, on applying the Incoterms® 2020 in the real world. Total viewing time is 4.5 hours. We strongly encourage you to go through these videos ahead of the Q&A as it will help clarify your questions.

These are presentations Bob used for our previous Masterclass which got great feedback:

“This has been the best two mornings of lockdown for me! Thanks so much to Bob for sharing your wealth and knowledge.”

“Thank you both, definitly worth the 3AM wake up! I had done the Incoterms® 2020 Certificate but I learned and understood additional points!”

The practical applications of the rules in any number of circumstances are not usually discussed by trainers. For example, up till now no-one has really looked at the application of each rule for the different modes of transport, the documents involved and their compatibility with letters of credit.

These presentations will look at what each of the Incoterms® 2020 rules say contractually, (using the Incoterms® 2020 book) before breaking down how those obligations are put into practice, including their compatibility with letters of credit.

You will have access to these videos until 1 month after the live Q&A session finishes.
