Export masterclasses for Shropshire businesses

Shropshire businesses are being urged to sign up for two masterclasses that aim to get them exporting their goods and services.

The half-day masterclasses - which are funded by ERDF SME International Growth Project and organised by the Department for International Trade (DIT) and West Midlands Chambers of Commerce - will be headed by a specialist trainer in international business strategies. There is no cost to eligible businesses attending.

The session on March 22 will examine how companies can pitch their business to an international audience, looking at business style, culture and market, using the gov.uk Export Opportunities platform, and how to make the most of Department for International Trade networks and overseas contacts.

The second, on April 17, will focus on the eight steps to successful international negotiation skills, negotiation, planning and how to improve the outcome of negotiations.

Patrick McCarron (pictured), business development manager at the Department for International Trade said: “More often than not, businesses need a guiding hand when it comes to having a strategic plan for export growth because there’s a step up from being reactive when an enquiry comes in from really planning to grow the business’s overseas markets.

“Our masterclasses can put businesses on the right path towards exporting, give them the confidence they need and also provide vital information on where they can get DIT support.”

Eligible businesses can sign up for both or just one of the masterclasses and the sessions will be hosted by Richard Jeffrey, of Business Navigators, at the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce, Trevithick House, Stafford Park 4, Telford.
