I was delighted to be invited by Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) as their webinar presenter on 19th May 2016 on “Exporting to South America, beyond the Obvious”.

Trade between Uruguay and the UK was the chosen topic for a panel discussion hosted at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Montevideo, organised by AJE Uruguay (an association of businesspeople under 40) and the Graduates from British Universities Association (GBUA). The event took place on 16th March 2016 and I was invited together with Ignacio de Paula from ebizmarts to discuss doing business in both countries. The British Ambassador in Montevideo, Ben Lyster-Binns, and the British Consul, Katharine Felton, attended the event.

One of my favourite ways of contributing to the international trade discussion with other experts and at the same time supporting exporters from all over the world is on social media, and especially on Twitter. The work from the Forum for International Trade Training (FITT) in Canada has particularly impressed me over the years, and it’s a pleasure to join their #TradeElite chats regularly, as a panelist or as a participant (check out @FITTnews)
