All About murat ozturker

If you’re thinking about getting some global business advice with me, Murat OZTURKER, applying my advisorship to learn the essential skills for growing a business or working with me as your business coach, you probably want to know some more about me.

I’ve been running businesses in one shape or another since I was 23. I’m 37 now, so I’ve been around the block a few times to find out what works and what doesn’t. I’ve run various kinds of businesses, from setting up global enterprises, running a export trading company, an international trade consultancy and in 2014, I founded Solar SOLENTURK with my business partner and started to design, produce, and export our solar energy solution and all-in-one solar led lights to all over the world. After this succesful enterprise, in 2018 I founded FUTURESIA Global Trade to help people and companies be a better player in the global business. We helped compaines from 4 continents for suppling various products and exporting their products. 

People describe me as a business geek, and I’m always reading and learning about management and business. I find it fascinating. And I love being able to pass on what I’ve learnt to my clients.

More About Murat

My specialist subjects

I specialized in global business. Which keeps things interesting when you’ve been doing this for 14 years, as I get all kinds of clients selling fascinating things. I do have a few specialist areas I love working on.

I’m a big fan of what small businesses can achieve through digital marketing and spend a lot of time keeping myself up to date with this. So, I can advise clients on how to use this to bring in more business.

I’ve become known for giving strategic advice about marketing in global businesses, and I regularly give talks about the right pricing strategies for global businesses. Most of my clients want to become more effective and productive, so I do a lot of work on personal productivity and automating business processes.

Everyone has a story worth telling in this life.

Infotainment is the name of the game, and I’m here to educate and inspire you, but also entertain you, too. Why not make it fun, right?

Murat OZTURKER – my backstory

Here’s a brief synopsis of my life so far.

EDUCATION

Born in Konya, went to school, read obsessively from an early age. Did double maths, physics and chemistry at A-level with some crazy idea that I would be a civil engineer. Although I still love modernist architecture and cool bridges, I changed my mind. Went to Cag University to study Economics under the false idea that this would help me to understand how the world works.

WORK

I hired my first job after graduated at Anadolu International Trade and Consultancy in 2005. I started at the bottom but learned many things about custom works and consultancy about international trade and European Union supports to the exporters and manufacturers in Turkey. 

Then I worked at Kaizer Consultancy as an international trade consultant and quality management systems in 2007. I learned many things about certifications and ISO quality systems, and studied about ISO systems, held the auditor certificates on ISO 9001, OHSAS 18001, ISO 14001, and ISO 22001. This was where I started my MBA at Selcuk University and first learnt about setting up businesses, kind of by accident, as a way of creating jobs in a very deprived community. 

Then, in 2009, I’ve done my military service at Turkish Airforce for 6 months. I then, have founded an International Education and Trade Consultancy firm (IECC), helped to students for choosing the best place to study abroad, and helped to company to sell their products especially to the Middle East countries and import products from China until 2011. 

In 2011, I started to work as an import and export manager at KONPET Drilling Machines. We exported machines to Middle East, Gulf countries, Central Asia, and Africa. And alo, we imported machinery parts from U.S., Russia, and Europe. 

In 2014, I’ve worked as a lecturer about export marketing at Tek Dunya Dil Kursu for 7 months. At the same time, I founded DOA company, and started to sell food products especially Olives and Olive Oil to abroad. 

Then I set up a Solar Energy company with my business partner Mr. Ismail Haydaroglu in 2015. First we produced solar modules and solar street lights in Turkey. Then we changed our mind and started to design in Turkey, manufactured in China, and export our products. We are specialized in all in one solar led lighting solutions and export our lights to 4 continents. Still we are growing with our passion of business.

In 2018, I and my business partners founded FUTURESIA Global Trade, we helped people and companies to  be a better player in global business. We specialized in Energy and Lighting, Medical Tools ( especially Medical Gloves), Agricultural Machinery, Gears and Gearboxes, and Food trading. We give Global Supply Chain and Global Marketing services to our clients.  

I’ll probably still be doing this for another 20 years; it’s the best job in the world.

Why this is the best job in the world for me?

I love doing this. Why?

I love it because the world of business is fascinating. There are so many facets to it, so many things to try out, levers to pull, and all the bits are interconnected. And there’s so much to learn, there’s always a new approach or a new tactic to test out. I love the feeling of thinking hard about a client’s problems and working out the best way forward.

And of course, I love the feeling that I can help people to make a successful business. I get a real thrill out of seeing an old client and finding out the impact of applying the strategy we put together.

I believe that everyone is entitled to make good money (there’s certainly enough in the world to go around) and enjoying the process of building a global business. That’s why my unofficial strapline is:

Let’s create something great together, and have fun doing it, too.

the other bits of my life

But what do you do the rest of the time, when you’re not being a business geek?

Well, I live in Bangkok and discover this awesome city. I search and learn many subjects, like Thai language, web design, graphic design.

In my spare time, I go to shopping malls, and historical places. I read a lot of fiction, usually with two or three novels on the go at the same time as a business book.

I worked as a English tutor when I came to Bangkok, I can say I liked to be a teacher and enjoyed with my students. I studied and held my TEFL certificate (120 hrs)  in April, 2020. 

I love to walk and explore the city where I’m living. I do fitness and jogging for stay healty because I know the most important thing is health.
