DIT Workshops


Brett Harland, digital trade adviser for the Department for International Trade (DIT) Yorkshire and the Humber, said:

“In today’s digitally driven economy, an increasing number of businesses realise they can significantly increase their sales by targeting customers overseas. Just as online sales are increasing here, so are online opportunities abroad. Businesses can increase their worldwide presence by better structuring their websites for international reach. A quick and low-cost way to enter these markets is by using global e-marketplaces and we have preferential agreements worldwide that companies can take advantage of. Any small or medium-sized business wishing to improve its skills and knowledge in this key area should attend the workshops being staged with Search Laboratory as we work together to encourage more SMEs to trade overseas.”

Ian Harris, CEO, Search Laboratory said:

“We’re thrilled to be working with the DIT Yorkshire and the Humber to help local businesses expand. There’s more opportunities than ever to grow your business through digital marketing, and our workshops take you step by step along the journey.”

The DIT have eight more events planned in 2017.
