Exports Communications Review Scheme
A subsidised UK Trade & Investment export communications review can help exporters by evaluating the way they present themselves and their products or services to overseas customers. The review provides companies with impartial and objective advice about addressing language and cultural barriers when trading with overseas markets, and helps to increase competitiveness and marketability overseas by recommending practical and achievable improvements.
A British Chambers of Commerce-accredited export communications consultant will analyse the business's current situation and prepare a report, highlighting strengths and weaknesses while making practical recommendations to help achieve goals and suggest other organisations or companies to contact. An indication of costs enables the exporter to draw up outline budgets. The aim of the export communications review is to provide the confidence to deal with overseas customers both now and in the future. That's why, as well as offering solutions to immediate problems, the review makes longer-term recommendations which can be used as the basis for developing an export communications strategy.
Depending upon the size of company and the extent of its product range and export activity, a review may involve up to three visits by the consultant.
