THURROCK businesses are being encouraged to look to overseas growth by the region’s largest international trade organisations.
Enterprise Europe Network and UK Trade & Investment have partnered with Thurrock Council for a half-day export workshop at the Thurrock Learning Shop, George Street, Grays on Wednesday, October 9 from 9.30am to 2pm.
The free interactive event aims to provide businesses with an insight into international sales, share top tips and put new and developing exporters on the road to success.
Mathilde Murphy, Enterprise Europe Network manager, said: “Although choosing the right market and getting started in international trade can seem daunting, exporting is a great way to boost your sales and easier than a lot of people think.
“We hope our free morning workshop can help people decide whether growing their business overseas is for them.”
Topics covered will include an introduction to overseas sales, the different stages of exporting, choosing your markets, the mechanics, reviewing your requirements and a final overview of the help and support on offer from government agencies.
“This workshop will give businesses an opportunity to hear first-hand from experts experienced in overseas sales, government-approved international trade advisors, and find out what it takes to sell successfully overseas,” says Mrs Murphy.
“International trade is the key to continued growth and the British brand has a fantastic reputation abroad and demand for our quality products across the world has never been greater,” she added.
Tea, coffee and networking lunch will be provided; to secure your place email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Enterprise Europe Network on 0845 641 99 55.
