The private sector must do more for SME exporters – roundtable event

A few weeks ago, I was invited to take part in a Roundtable event organised by Wilkins Kennedy titled ‘The private sector must do more for SME exporters’. The event was held in Cobham, Surrey and was a brilliant opportunity to meet with leading professionals in the area to discuss how the private sector can contribute to the UK economy through exports.

Surrey and the South East really is a thriving business community, and this event emphasised how much we can do to help the UK economy. As SME’s and businesses in the UK, we can all do our bit for the UK economy by doing what we do already on an international level.

Other attendees included Dave Birch of Consult Hyperion, Dr Malcolm Parry, Director of the Surrey Research Park and Dr Kegang Wu, chief China adviser to the British Chambers of Commerce.

“Chaz Brooks, Managing Director of Chaz Brooks Communications in Guildford, said the internet had made the world smaller, which gave English companies a tremendous advantage. “English is still the international business language. A website or a blog in English is a big advantage.”
