On behalf of ExportSefton and Liverpool Exporters Network, we would like to invite you to participate in putting Export on Trial!

The ‘Trial’ will take place on: Tuesday 14 June (4:00pm – 6:00pm) in the spectacular setting of the Council Chambers, Bootle Town Hall. ‘Court’ will be adjourned for Networking and Refreshments before and after the Trial.

A ‘Mock Trial’ will see our solicitor for the prosecution, Frank Rogers, Brown Turner Ross prosecuting Michael Gould, Chair Sefton Exporters Network and MD Richardson’s Healthcare, on charges of ‘Not Exporting’. The Accused will be facing our Judge for this unique trial, Clive Drinkwater, NW Regional Director, UKTI, who will argue the Case for Exporting.

The Trial is being sponsored by Bibby Financial Services, who will be called as an expert witness for the prosecution and the Accused will be cross-examined and evidence and statements considered, before a verdict is reached! Will the Accused be acquitted or even held ‘in contempt of court’ and remanded in custody?

Attending this mock trial will give you a unique view and a clearer understanding on the Challenges and Opportunities attached to exporting from the UK.

So, if you are NEW TO EXPORTING or if you are ALREADY EXPORTING, then come along to hear how you can get the strategic support you need, grow your export function, survive times of economic instability, build a robust export plan, build on your existing knowledge and access Global Value Chains and New Markets.

This event will be rescheduled at a later date.
