The first in a new series of mini-export networking events get under way tomorrow.
The event which brings into contact with some of the region’s top exporters in a bid to boost Leeds City Region’s overseas sales, will held at the offices of Deloitte at City Square, Leeds.
The theme of the event will be How Can I Export? A talk will be given by Mike Strawson, senior export adviser at Bradford-based Chamber International. The event is staged as part of a new contract from Leeds City College, using the European Social Fund.
The event is the first in a new twice-monthly programme where novice exporters will be able to get hands-on support from experienced international traders. Export professionals will also work closely with firms to identify what skills they need to help them to trade overseas successfully so a new training module can be devised.
Contact Chamber International on 0845-034-7200.
The We are International initiative is delivered by Leeds City Region’s Enterprise Partnership with international trade specialists Chamber International, UKTI Yorkshire and Humber, Enterprise Europe Yorkshire, MY Export Hub and Yorkshire Universities in a bid to add £1.6bn to the City Region economy .
