Event description

Description

Got a great business? Want to expand overseas but not sure how? Book a chat with an International Trade Advisor and learn how you could get started today!

Can't make the session dates/times outlined on EventBrite? This opportunity is also available outside Social Media Week. Please email lizzie.bradshaw@businesswest.co.uk to get in touch to arrange a future appointment.

You will be meeting one of the following International Trade Advisors:

Ben Leonard

Ben supports businesses that want to take advantage of the fantastic business opportunities available around the world. From start-ups to multi-million pound businesses Ben works to make sure that exporting can provide business growth that is sustainable, profitable and rewarding. Having worked with growing businesses in Cornwall for over 14 years he has a great ‘black book’ of contacts and is always looking to network businesses together when there are benefits to be had. Ben also runs his own thriving martial arts business so if you need some more practical advice on taking out the competition, he can help with that too!

Hilary Charman

Hilary Charman started her international sales and marketing career selling packaging machinery in the Black Forest in Germany. Prior to that, she worked as European marketing manager for a swimming costume company, then as an export sales manager, travelling three weeks a month to visit distributors and run overseas national accounts. She also owned a translation agency, and worked as an export communications consultant advising UK companies how to offer their overseas customers the highest level of customer care. Hilary has worked for the Department for International Trade in Somerset since 2006, and advised hundreds of companies on all matters to do with exporting. She manages four clusters (food, drink, baby products and products for animals) to help companies overcome export barriers through networking.

Andrew Fraser

Andrew advises companies of all sizes and types to increase their export business. Andrew’s international experience is in the healthcare and food and drink sectors so he gravitates towards business in these areas. Australia and New Zealand are markets of particular interest, not altogether unconnected with a love of new world wine and travel. He enjoys food, sports, and reading.
