Selling overseas has significant benefits for businesses, positively impacting on staffing, productivity, financial performance and longevity.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) is hosting a series of interactive sessions aimed at businesses that want to grow by considering selling internationally – if this is you, then please come along to this workshop.

Hosted by Angela Maxwell OBE whose contribution to commerce and enterprise support has seen her develop a stellar reputation together with a wealth of business and export experience. Angela will bring her energy and enthusiasm to encourage you to think about why you should take the first steps in selling overseas…

What to expect:

  • learn about why exporting can be beneficial and how it could boost your profile, credibility and bottom line
  • hear success stories from local business leaders and learn why they would never look back
  • meet your local DIT team and get sight of the journey your business could embark on with the aim to join an organised visit to an overseas market six months from now
  • share thoughts and have group discussions with companies that are in similar sectors to yours, making valuable contacts and even gaining potential collaboration opportunities

The UK is home to cutting edge innovators, a place that nurtures talent and creates exceptional products and services. This is your opportunity to sell to the world.

The demand is out there. You should be too.
