International Business growth brings challenges and risks that can become barriers, knowing how to overcome them is key to getting your business moving to the next stage.

Hosted by EEN, this interactive workshop aims to put barriers to international growth into perspective and show how you can identify the potential risks for your business and overcome them.

Delegates will learn about all the relevant areas of risk and understand what they need to know. It will cover what aspects can be supported by banks, accountants, lawyers, freight forwarders, translation companies, and other international business service providers.

The workshop will include enjoyable and lively exercises to challenge perceptions and illustrate subjects. There will also be a quiz on Managing International Risk. Delegates will come away from the workshop more confident about developing their international business and the support that is available through the Enterprise Europe Network and other partner organisations.
