UKTI currently has a few places available on its flagship Passport to Export programme. The programme, which lasts for one year, is aimed at new or inexperienced exporters and includes advice and guidance from a local International Trade Adviser (ITA) and an interactive group workshop covering all the elements of exporting – what is your sales proposition, which market should you start with, what is your route to market etc. There is also a version for companies for whom E-commerce is their primary sales channel.
This programme is free of charge to eligible companies so if you would like to find out more, please contact Carolyn Bentley at Carolyn.firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 07713 085371. If you are thinking about exporting or have been starting to react to orders from overseas for a while but need some structure and a plan, this could be a good way to kick start 2016.
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
