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 email@example.com 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.
"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. "
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"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. "
"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."
