Online international trade workshop - understanding exporting - June 2023

The UK is only 4% of global GDP so 96% of the world’s market could be open to you. The world is more and more connected, so it is easier than it has ever been to trade internationally. This is an introduction to exporting and the practical considerations needed. The workshop covers the requirements of sales and purchase orders, an introduction to Incoterms, packaging considerations, general compliance issues and commodity codes. The importance of export documentation is explained, along with sources of help and guidance.
This online workshop will be delivered by Frances Fawcett, of International Trade Matters Ltd.

Frances has worked both within and with large global corporations and small businesses and frequently internationally for many years in a wide range of sectors. Frances is a member of the Institute of Leadership and Management and a Fellow of the Institute of Training and Occupational Learning. Her areas of expertise and interest spill over into her personal life where she is a volunteer scout Leader holding local, district and county roles including that of county leadership and management trainer.
