This will the change the game for all of us!  There is no clear picture of how Britain will trade with other countries after 2018, yet we already see a major push to expand international trade.

With a weaker pound, there are real opportunities to grow. How you respond in the coming months will determine the future for your business. So, we’ve created an informative and interactive event for Oxfordshire businesses.

Anneliese Dodds, MEP and parliamentary candidate for Oxford East, will give her perspective on the challenges and opportunities offered by Brexit. 

Rob Lewtas from the Department of International Trade (DIT) will introduce a new source of funding to support international expansion. 

Two local business leaders with a successful history of international trading will share their experience and plans. There will also be small group discussions and a panel debate, with experts in relevant fields available to facilitate and contribute.

End your evening with canapes, drinks and networking - the chance to make new contacts and discuss further. 

Event agenda

Anneliese Dodds - MEP for South East England

As an MEP I push for a greater focus on creating jobs and sustainable economic growth, and fight for a higher level of investment from the EU to the South East. I would particularly like to see more funding for the most deprived areas of my constituency.

Rob Lewtas – Department for International Trade
Rob specialises in international business development and marketing with experience across both public and private sectors. Rob's role in DIT is to work with UK based FTSE 250 companies and hi-growth SMEs to develop new opportunities and to win business in new markets. Rob's particular specialism is identifying and securing hi-value procurement contracts and accessing large scale investment programmes in complex markets.

Dale Harper - Head of Business Development (WMP Creative)
With a passion for connecting people, organisations and design, he enjoys holding the key role of Head of Business Development at WMP Creative. As lead NBD, Dale has in many ways become the face of WMP representing the organisation both home and abroad. He frequently attends international trade shows and was instrumental in creating the foundations for WMP’s Asian explorations.

“Excellent event: great value, very relevant, and chock-full of speakers who offered practical advice and were happy to share their personal experiences. Much better to get advice from real business people than the usual sources.”
