Whether you champion the ‘in’ or ‘out’ camp in the Brexit discussion, one thing is for sure, if your business is based in the UK you are hoping for an outcome that gives you the strongest possible trading opportunities, no matter what the result of the referendum.
Now more than ever, it is time to show the world why you are a great British business; to show them that you are a safe bet when it comes to international trade; to show them what you can offer as seasoned expert at exporting.
In these changing global times, wouldn’t you like to have the external credibility that gives you the competitive edge? Because if exporting suddenly becomes more complicated, challenging or competitive than it already is, then your award-winning status might just be the golden ticket you need to get you through the door to a new market.
If you have battled through economic turbulence over many years and come out on top by taking your products, operations and services across the world you could now be in line for a key return on your investment by becoming an award-winning exporter.
Take a look at my top three awards for UK exporters:
1.The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise – perhaps the most coveted award for UK based businesses. There are three categories including International Trade and approximately 100 exporters receive awards from The Queen every year. Check out my simple Queen’s Awards infographics to see the criteria.
These are just three awards out of many international and national awards now open. Check out my Awards Expert blog for tips on winning awards for your achievements. And contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org for a FREE Queen’s Awards consultation or to be assessed for your likelihood of winning any of the awards above and more. I have driven a 100% success rate for my Queen’s Award entries and will give you all the help you need to win this year.
