Community of Global Trade Champions

As we return to work, we want to champion all businesses that trade internationally. We are therefore launching the Global Trade Champion community and we’d like you to get involved.

We want to encourage business across the region to engage more internationally and ensure they are prepared up to and after the Brexit transition period has ended. We believe that by doing this, all Global Trade Champions will also benefit within their own business.

What is a Global Trade Champion?

An individual or company representative

  • That wants to create links to do business overseas
  • That is actively pursuing import and export opportunities
  • That wants to share their knowledge to help others conduct business outside of the UK.


What does a Global Trade Champion do?

Trade! We want all relevant businesses to be able to trade internationally from January 2021 once the Brexit transition period is over. Here are some of the ideas of where our global businesses can contribute:

  • Be business-ready to trade / take your international trade journey to the next level
  • Bring expertise to other businesses in our region by offering advice, contacts and resources
  • Provide input into the needs and interests of your business to identify the right type of international growth initiatives
  • Explore trade opportunities in new markets through local market access support and sharing country and sector experiences.

Views and opinions will be sought by survey, poll, discussion, roundtables, meetings etc. and can be supplemented by engaging with the monthly Chamber Export Club and International Sector.
