The Chairman of IoD Central London invites all IoD members, their guests and non-members to the International Trade Special Interest Group Launch Event which is being kindly hosted by KPMG.

The new International Trade Special Interest Group seeks to create a community for members that are interested in all aspects of international trade, both exporting and inward investment.

For the launch event our expert panel will provide their insights into the business benefits of exporting. The Director General of DIT will outline the services and support they provide. KPMG will discuss the business benefits of exporting. An SME will describe their export journey, challenges, success stories they have achieved and the positive impact it has had on their business.

After the panel presentations, there will be a Q&A session. This will be followed by networking drinks with canapes. 

There will be a business card draw with a member and non-member prize.
