Members' only event - Effective Networking
Wednesday 10 August, 17.00 - 19.30pm
The Yew Lodge Hotel, Kegworth, Leicestershire

When identifying new markets, evaluating overseas partners and understanding what help which is available, exporters need to use the knowledge and contacts of other businesses. This will include other exporters, export service providers and support organisations. But how do we recognise such useful people, how do we build relationships of mutual trust and how can we leverage these relationships for maximum effect ?

This workshop will teach us the practices and techniques needed to ensure our networking is effective. A number of practical exercises will be used to demonstrate the points being made – and we promise that you will do things differently afterwards.


So whether you’re new to emita or you’re a long standing member, this event is a perfect opportunity to meet like-minded people.

To register for this event, please visit the emita website.
