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.email@example.com 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."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
