HHCC and HEY LEP are holding a free ‘Grow Global’ event

Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce and the HEY LEP are working together to provide Hull businesses with an exceptional opportunity to hear from and meet top international trade experts at a series of export awareness and development workshops in March.

The second workshop in the series is an online webinar on Tuesday 14th March. Grow Global will focus on e-commerce and cross border digital trade, with experts sharing their extensive knowledge and expertise to help you grow your business globally. The event will welcome Sarah Carroll who has over 30 years of e-Commerce experience and is the author of UK Amazon bestseller ‘Grow Fast, Grow Global: 6 steps to unstoppable international growth in the digital age’. Joining Sarah will be Jessica McNally, International e-Commerce Advisor for the Northern Powerhouse region of the Department for International Trade.

There are various options for selling internationally and Sarah and Jessica will be discussing best practices in growing your business globally, as well as providing top tips for selling through your websites, marketplaces, social media and distributors. They will also help you with Action Planning:

Are you already digital and want to go international? Or are you international and want to go digital?

  • What is the opportunity?
  • What are the drivers?
  • What is your visibility? (you need to be visible in search engines, marketplaces and social media!)
  • Where are you on your digital journey?
  • What support is available?

Both Sarah and Jessica will be available for a limited number of private consultations after the presentations. These 1-2-1s are available to all attendees but will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. There will also be the opportunity to network over lunch.

A local company that has gone through the digitalisation process and is now successfully selling globally will also speak at the event.

This is a free of charge event for Hull-based businesses and is part of a series of export awareness and development workshops funded through the Shared Prosperity Fund.

Exporting doesn’t have to be difficult – it can be made easier but research has to be carried out. Don’t miss your chance to gain advice from the top experts HHCC and HEY LEP are bringing to Hull in March 2023.
