Special business briefing with the Department for International Trade

A special briefing,in conjunction with Square One Law and the Institute of Directors in the North East, with a senior national official from the Department for International Trade (DIT), which will highlight UK Government assistance for exporting businesses in post-Brexit Britain.

We are delighted to be able to welcome the DIT’s Marian Sudbury OBE to the North East to take part in the briefing, who will provide a unique insight into the operations of the Department and the role of SMEs in maintaining the UK’s growing export activity.

As a Director of DIT, Marian leads the drive for exports from, and investment into, areas of the UK including the Northern Powerhouse and partnering with the Devolved Administrations.

The event will focus on the range of support offered by the Department for SMEs. This includes a new match fund grant, due to be launched in April, to help SME businesses become export ready and be able to grow in global markets.

The event will also feature a Q&A session discussing some of the key and emerging markets in which the DIT is helping SMEs access along with the experiences of successful SME exporters from the region.

Light refreshments will be served with plenty of opportunity for networking.
