Kick Start to Global Growth events

Posted: 27th March 2017

ExportSelling 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.

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
