A comprehensive Export Expert training programme is offered to companies which runs throughout the year and is designed to train companies in most aspects of International Trade.
Export awareness and Country focused events regularly appear in our events calendar. These we run
in conjunction with the Global Business Network and various outside organisations such as DIT, UKEF and a variety of sponsors. A wealth of expert advice can we gleaned at these events so they are not to be missed.
We have a quarterly on-line International Trade Magazine called i-leader which provides companies with successful news stories of Essex exporters, webinars, outside training, opportunities overseas and Country profiles.
Being a Strategic Partner of COBCOE allows us to tap into the network of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe. The contacts we have allows us to assist our members in these countries with various enquires. Together with the Export Britain website this now allows us to stretch out further to British Chambers Worldwide expanding the Chamber Network and the wealth of information available.
In 2014 we launched our very successful International Trade Forum which brings together exporters and MP’s and is going from strength to strength for 2017!
