We need to grow and develop our business network #IBNLounge
We need to grow and develop our business network on an international platform, which can be a huge challenge. If your business aims to be borderless in terms of the product or service you sell then you’ll need to open your mindset. You should recognise the fact that international business is not simply an expansion of your domestic operations beyond your home country but more like a different business with different needs and requirements than you have known before.
If you want to build a valuable international business network, you should take advantage of the opportunities that are available to you in London, with a culturally diverse community of different nationalities (and languages) on your doorstep.
If you use social networks and share your business message on these platforms, then your business growth increases substantially. However you’ll still need to contact and engage clients since face time gives you an opportunity to build your relationship.
Research shows that firms that sell internationally tend to be more innovative and grow faster than their competitors, while a sound business model and a clear plan are additional requirements alongside a strong network.
Build partnerships and a valuable network #IBNLounge
The East London Export Club also provides a robust platform to build partnerships, identify leads and offer complementary services. Our ‘Business Lounge’ is unique because it is a curated platform with a focus on your business expansion. Every guest in the room could mean synergy with your business. #IBNLounge
