PODCAST: Breaking into the export market as an SME, Amanda Holt, SYPAQ Systems

Amanda Holt, SYPAQ Systems

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Amanda Holt, the chief executive of SYPAQ Systems, who will share her advice for SMEs looking to navigate and capitalise on the Commonwealth government’s defence industry export agenda. 

Holt will address the challenges that they have faced, the importance of Australian Defence Force involvement as a catalyst for creating export opportunities, and share how SYPAQ has taken advantage of innovation events as a way of connecting their products with the end users.

With a role on the CDIC advisory board, Holt will unpack both her position within the organisation and the role that the board plays in the defence sector. She will share her plans for SYPAQ going forward, which will see the business grow exponentially in the coming five years, and discuss her thoughts on potential leadership changes as a result of the looming federal election.

Enjoy the podcast,
