The host, Edward Clarke, senior operations manager at FedEx, is looking forward to a lively event to help SMEs overcome their challenges and reap the rewards of entering global trade.
"Cambridge is a city buzzing with creativity and entrepreneurial spirit, so we're very excited about offering useful hints and tips to help grow local businesses globally. We're used to working directory with SMEs, so we understand some of the challenges they face in competing with larger players in individual markets," Clarke said.
Building on years' experience of providing a platform for companies to do business overseas, this advice session will provide the opportunity for small business owner-managers to hear from an entrepreneur on their success to date, the challenges they faced and ultimately how they have managed to successfully enter international markets and the secrets of doing so.
The briefing will also feature insight from:
- Dr Nick Hill, MD, inventor of award-winning Cambridge-based SureFlap, makers of a range of innovative microchip operated pet doors which use patented low-power RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology developed in Cambridge (UK).
- David Moir, International Trade Adviser at UK Trade & Investment
The event takes place at The Hauser Forum from 8am. For full details, please see the Cambridge Network event page. If you are a local business and would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a free place.
