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.
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“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. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
