Description

The International Trade Day will start off with Keith dispelling the myths, giving the facts and sharing his years of experience in an informative workshop. The workshop is aimed at those who have already started exporting as well as those being new to trading overseas and will help clarify what’s involved in preparing your business for your exporting journey. It explains why we should export, how to establish and manage an international trade strategy and how to build and market brands in a number of diverse overseas markets.

In the afternoon there will be opportunity for you to have a private one to one mini consultation with Keith so you can further understand how to get your business export ready and make the most of the current international trend. (There are limited private consultations available so early booking is advised)

You will also be able have an informal chat with Owain Williams from NatWest Cymru on the various routes to funding should your business need a capital injection. (Again early booking is advised)

Not only have we got rugged mountains, miles of sandy beaches, ancient woodland, longest ever zip wires and guaranteed surf. We’ve also got a huge range of independent crafters, artisans, creators and manufacturers in North Wales that could be out there selling their goods and services to the world – but they’re not. We know there are many reasons for this, especially fear of the unknown, thinking they’re not large enough or even good enough but for many reasons they’re not taking advantage of the fact that the world is simply loving North Wales and everything it has to offer.
There’s never been a better time to start your business on its exporting journey and share your Welsh business products with the rest of the world.

Bydd y gweithdy yn help ichi ddysgu am y gwaith ynghlwm â pharatoi eich busnes ar gyfer mynd ati i allforio. Bydd Keith yn ymdrin â’r buddion dros allforio, sut i sefydlu a rheoli strategaeth fasnachol ryngwladol yn ogystal â sut i ddatblygu a marchnata brandiau mewn sawl marchnad tramor amrywiol.

Mae gennym ni fynyddoedd garw, traethau tywod sy’n ymestyn am filltiroedd, coetir hynafol, gwifrau gwib hiraf y byd ac amgylchedd delfrydol ar gyfer syrffio. Fodd bynnag, nid dyna’r oll sydd gennym ni i’w gynnig yng Ngogledd Cymru. Mae gennym ni nifer fawr o grefftwyr, creawdwyr a gwneuthurwyr annibynnol yma fuasai’n medru cynnig eu nwyddau a’u gwasanaeth i weddill y byd – ond dydyn nhw ddim ar hyn o bryd. Mae llawer o resymau dros hyn yn amlwg, yn enwedig yr ofn o’r anhysbys a’u bod yn meddwl nad ydyn nhw’n wneuthurwr digon mawr neu hyd yn oed yn meddwl eu bod yn ddigon da. Beth bynnag dydyn nhw, am amryw resymau, ddim yn manteisio ar y ffaith fod gweddill y byd wrth eu bodd efo Gogledd Cymru a bob dim sydd ganddi i’w gynnig.

Rŵan ydy’r amser delfrydol i fynd ati i drefnu fod eich busnes yn allforio a rhannu eich cynnyrch Cymreig gyda gweddill y byd.
