Busy day again tomorrow as I am one of the members of a panel at a Guardian & Lloyds TSB Breakfast Seminar being held at the Cardiff Marriott Hotel.
The Institute of Directors is running a series of breakfast seminars across the country for business leaders, in association with the Guardian Small Business Network and Lloyds TSB Commercial.
The seminars bring together a panel of well known business specialists to discuss the key issues of the day.
Run in the style of Question Time, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions to the panel and contribute to the debate.
For more information and details on dates and venues please visit the Guardian Small Business Network
The Cardiff seminar will be co-chaired by a Guardian business journalist and the IoD Wales Director, Robert Lloyd Griffiths.
The panel is made up of well-known sector specialists and a business professional from Lloyds TSB Commercial.
The seminar topic is‘Accessing New Markets.’
The seminar will discuss the following ideas -
- New markets equal new opportunities for business: whether it’s expanding beyond your local region, opening up a new customer base for your products or taking your business global.
- What are the tools and support available and how can you form partnerships to achieve success?
- With the government’s commitment to opening procurement routes for SME’s how can businesses be best placed to win these opportunities?
- Is meeting sustainability standards the key to unlocking public sector contracts?
