This free session will include a networking opportunity as well as a questions and answers session, enabling attendees to gain direct and personal benefit from the speakers’ expertise. The event is open to businesses of all industry sectors.
Daren Wood, Membership and Export Services Manager at the BSIA, comments: “Supporting more small and medium sized businesses to export is crucial to the Government’s plan to rebalance our economy, create jobs and boost prosperity. British products and services have an enviable reputation across the globe and there has never been a better time to grasp the international trade opportunities out there.”
