Very excited to announce that we have won the Open to Export - Export Action Plan Competition sponsored by NatWest.
Susie went to London to present to a panel of industry experts and do a Q&A.
Here's an expert from her post win interview:
How have you found the experience of the final today?
It was a fantastic opportunity to pitch our company to people who have a wealth of experience in the export market.
Presenting can be daunting but preparing for it made me focus on how ready my business is to export and the judges feedback was invaluable.
What tips would you give to other new exporters?
- Look at every aspect of your business and be honest. Do you have a product that the export markets wants/needs?
- Make sure you understand the market you are planning to export to and be clear on their requirements, product labelling, import duties etc.
- There is so much help out there. Seek it out. It will make the process so much easier.
