How Southwest SMEs can Export Successfully and WIN Overseas Business

As part of its ongoing support for members and the wider advanced engineering sector within the South West, WEAF is pleased to announce that it will hosting in partnership with the regional DBT (Department of Business and Trade) export team a ‘How to Export Successfully and Win Overseas Business’ support webinar.

The process of exporting can seem daunting. This webinar will take through details of the new SW Export Academy and highlight the support available to help your company plan for, and execute, your export activities.

The Export Academy is primarily designed for owners and senior managers of SME businesses located in the South West.

Why has the Export Academy been developed?

Research from the DBT suggests that most business who could export feel that they don’t have a good level of knowledge about how to do so.

The Export Academy aims to address this uncertainty about how to sell internationally through education and support, up-skilling businesses so they have the tools and confidence to seek out new opportunities around the world.

The webinar will also provide introductions to :

  • Barbara Singleton – Advanced Engineering Sector Specialist from DBT
  • Tim Burden – Presenting on behalf of UK Export Finance
  • Emily Lambert – Export Academy Adviser from DBT
  • Nigel Barker – Digital Commerce Adviser from DBT

The final part of the session will provide success stories from two exporting SME’s.
