Our last #BL Live Show was on Tuesday 22nd November.

This show is all about leveraging international trade through importing and exporting and how it could help to grow your business in new and exciting ways. We will cover the plethora of support available across Greater Lincolnshire, whether you’re new to international trade or a veteran looking to exploit new markets.

Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, International Trade Coach, Eve Farley, will discuss key considerations for those businesses wishing to start their export journey and how best to prepare for success. International Trade Adviser from the Department for International Trade, Heather Martin, will talk about how the DIT help businesses explore and access support to help them export successfully.
