  • Are you thinking about making the first move into exporting?
  • Are you confused as to where to start?
  • Want to know who can support you?

You need the Passport to Export – a series of short, sharp, interactive workshops that will give you all the information you need to start trading internationally.

Through four workshops the Passport to Export will help you explore the exciting prospect of growing your business on the global stage. If you have little or no previous exporting experience but would like to find out a bit more about what is involved these workshops are for you.

The workshops are FREE and are delivered between 8.30 am and 10.00 am or 4.30 pm to 6.00 pm so that they don’t impact too much on your working day. You will also have the opportunity for networking at the beginning and end of the workshop and to hear from businesses who have already taken the first steps into exporting.
