United States – Land of Opportunity! FSB Exporting Workshop, Huddersfield
February 28, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The United States is the largest, most competitive and technologically advanced economy in the world. It is the UK’s top export destination. If you are considering the US as an export market then join us for our introduction to entering the market.
Paul Walters, the lead for International Trade for the FSB in Yorkshire and Humber, and Director of Lime Tree Europe Ltd, will offer tips on the logistics of selling to the market.
Paul will be joined by Bev Wills. Bev is the Founder and Lead Consultant of Right Direction Ltd, and has had a long and varied career owning and operating businesses in both the UK and the United States and worked for American and UK companies at senior level. Having lived and worked in both countries he has a wealth of experience in the culture of transatlantic trade.
He will be sharing insights into the significant differences, the pitfalls they create and some ideas and how to safely navigate the U.S. environment. This includes location, recruitment and things you don’t want to learn the hard way.
There will also be representatives from the Department of International Trade, Leeds City Region LEP and our own experts to help you with International Trade – wherever in the world you want to know about.
The event will take place at 3M Buckley Innovation Centre. The closest car park is Kings Bridge Road, operated by Kirklees Council. Several other car parks are within walking distance.
This event is free to both FSB members and non-members but please register your attendance in advance.
