Diane James, MEP for South East England, will give her perspective on the challenges and opportunities offered by Brexit.

Rob Lewtas from the Department of International Trade (DIT) will introduce a new source of funding to support international expansion.

Dale Harper, Head of Business Development WMP Creative will share their experience and plans of a servicies business in international trading.

There will also be small group discussions and a panel debate, with experts in relevant fields available to facilitate and contribute.End your evening with canapes, drinks and networking - the chance to make new contacts and discuss further.
