Mandy Lockett, International Business Director of the East Lancashire’s Chamber of Commerce , has published her latest column in the Business Life magazine Spummer edition, which reads:

“Lancashire has a strong international trading heritage.Complementing this is the International Trade Club who are celebrating their 60th Anniversary from its formation on the 22nd December 1957. This makes the Lancashire club the UK’s oldest – successfully helping Lancashire manufacturers realise their exporting potential. The club, sponsored by Cassons, is going from strength to strength and now totals 109 members. Of these 14 are actively contributing to the work of Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy as they negotiate the exit from the EU.
Our next meeting scheduled for the 5th October welcomes Simon Mollan, Senior Lecturer at the York Management School discussing the three scenarios for Brexit, hard, soft and limbo. Louise
Green, Counter Terrorism Security Advisor for Lancashire Constabulary and Andrew Turner, Managing Director of composite tube makers Langtec Limited, sharing his experiences, successes and pitfalls of international sales. Join today to become part of this highly acclaimed network.
Over the last few weeks we have been connecting with the British Chambers of Commerce, Global Business Network. A powerful and reliable B2B network, supporting Lancashire businesses on the international field. Positive feedback has been received from Mexico (possible visit in Oct), Colombia, Africa, Chile, Palestine, Kenya, Nigeria and Cambodia. Local businesses will have the option to link-up with these British Chambers here in Accrington through scheduled one-to-one meetings. An hour of your time may open a world of opportunities. Look out for the visit dates or register your interest to not miss out.”
