'East London Export Club' Launch Initiative To Provide Businesses With An International Reach

East London Export Club encourages and promotes business growth and development 


London UK, Monday 14th May 2015 - The last few years have been a difficult time for business, with an uncertain economy and slow growth affecting everyone. With things getting back on track, 2015 is the time to take positive action: formulating a plan; securing new contacts; growing your customer base; increasing exports.

Launching this June the East London Export Club, supported by established commercial enterprises, was formed to assist small and medium companies with business growth in the Greater London area.

Ade Awokoya, Co-Founder at East London Export Club said “We have had great support from the well-established South London Export Club and will be providing similar export support services in East London.”

With support from NatWest Regional Enterprise banking team, the Club will provide an enabling environment by establishing a business community. It will be a platform for networking with the leaders of other ambitious businesses, and provide ideas and insight to help you grow your own business, nationally and on the international stage.

The first FREE event will take place in London, on Tuesday, 2 June 2015 from 18:30 to 21:00 and will be attended by a number of notable business executives, including keynote speaker and Director General of the Institute of Export & International Trade, Lesley Batchelor OBE. Having championed UK exports for many years, Batchelor is a highly influential figure within international trade industries.

In addition, panelists include:  

Jim Foxall – MD, Ringshall Resources

Levent Yildizgoren – MD, TTC wetranslate

Nick Howe – NatWest Regional Enterprise Manager, London

Bryan Treherne MBE – Chairman, South London Export Club

The panel will cover the Launch topic "Go Global - East London and Beyond".  The discussion will bring into focus how to develop and grow a business through International Trade. This will be based on insights from the experience and track record of panelists.
