If you want to expand internationally – talk to the government – no seriously – I mean it…

Despite government promises and plans for the future, let’s face it – very few business owners see s much benefit in seeking government help.  I certainly assumed it would be shrouded in red tape and ultimately a fruitless exercise – how wrong could I be…

With Kyoto a regular client and a trip planned to visit we decided to invest time in growing our Japanese business – but how?  What would be the best way to progress?  Our executive director, Helen took these questions to a recent UKTI event and came away with some surprisingly positive results.

Firstly it was suggested that as was to be new business elements to the trip we apply for a grant to help with travel expenses.  Not only was the form relatively simple to complete, we had a positive response in less the 48 hours.

Secondly we were offered UKTI’s OMIS service, essentially a research process where they took the time to understand our business before making introductions on our behalf.  The result was three new business meetings – sure they might take time to gestate, if at all – but certainly a lot better than we would have managed on our own.

It is a paid service so the cost has to be weighed up against the return but I certainly believe it was worth the effort. Go on, try it out for yourself…
