World First, the international money transfer and FX expert, today announced the launch of THINK GLOBAL 2016, its inaugural one-day event focusing on international trade, to be held on October 11th in London.

The event will explore the opportunities of trading globally with businesses in attendance receiving expert guidance on how to maximise their potential for international growth and overcome barriers.

Leading experts and entrepreneurs will speak at the event with a keynote address delivered by Mark Garnier, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the recently formed Department for International Trade.

Business leaders will share their secrets for success on a range of topics including; how to make a business ready to export, effective marketing for exporting, accessing the right financial products to support growth and manging local regulatory regimes when entering a new market.

As the UK adjusts to the post-Brexit environment and begins to redefine its relationship with the EU, addressing the importance of international trade and the growth it could help unlock for UK businesses has never been more critical.

Other speakers already confirmed include Cecile Reinaud, founder of Seraphine, Adam Tavener, founder of Alternative Business Funding and Gori Yahaya, Head of Training for the Digital Garage from Google.

Additional speakers and the full agenda will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

It is free to attend and will be held at One Marylebone in London from 10:00-18:00 on Tuesday October 11th.

Commenting Jonathan Quin, CEO of World First said:

“We know from our own experiences and those of our clients that expanding internationally is not easy, but we also know that the potential for growth is significant. Our mission at THINK GLOBAL 2016 is to provide inspiration, confidence and practical advice to enable businesses to make a success of international trade.”

“Despite the uncertainty brought about by the UK’s decision to leave the EU, opportunities still exist for businesses of all sizes on the global stage. We think that now more than ever it is time to think global and support the UK’s SMEs to become the next ‘mini-multinationals’.”
