Selling overseas event


Are you running a small business in Cornwall and always wondered if exporting might be for you?

The Engine Room & Export Cornwall will be opening up the export debate, trying to dispel some of the myths when considering the export market, in a special conference in Truro on November 7.

Matthew Thomson, CEO Fifteen Cornwall & Cornwall Food Foundation, will open the show sharing his knowledge of the exporting from his experience in the social enterprise sector.

He said “As Britain’s first Social Enterprise Zone, Cornwall has got itself another unique selling point to add to its formidable armoury.

“Social enterprise is increasingly recognised as the 21st century way of doing business and the more we can position ourselves as engines of social and environmental growth as well as economic growth, the more interest there is going to be in what we do, how we do it and what we sell.”

David Bone and Annette Morton from Export Cornwall will also be available to answer any questions.

Bone said: “There are many reasons why you may want to focus on developing your business overseas – some will be peculiar to your business.  By understanding these reasons you can build a business model that delivers the benefits.”

Lunch will be provided with a networking opportunity to follow. This event is free but booking is essential, as numbers are limited.
