The Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce has been recognised for Excellence in International Trade, becoming finalists at the 2018 Chamber Business Awards.

With a combined 60+ years’ experience, the export team has been supporting Hertfordshire’s businesses to fulfil their overseas ventures.

Whether a business is planning to export for the first time, or is expanding on existing export activity, or has Brexit concerns, the dedicated Export team can offer practical advice and assistance, documentation services, international marketing and business information to help make sure that businesses are fully prepared for trading overseas.

Herts Chamber recently bolstered the export team, welcoming John Woodruffe, International Trade Advisor. Bringing a wealth of experience, including 32 years at the Foreign Office and DIT, this addition enables the Chamber to deal with more export enquiries and provide consistent export advice.

Neville Reyner, CBE DL Hon.Dlitt, Chairman, Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce said “During a time of uncertainty, it is vital that businesses ensure they are ready for anything Brexit throws at them. The export team has done an amazing job at helping Hertfordshire’s businesses with all their export needs and concerns. With the addition to the team, we are now more than ever best positioned to assist Hertfordshire’s businesses. We are greatly pleased to be a finalist in the BCC national awards (BCC represents some 75,000 businesses, several million employees through 53 accredited Chambers of Commerce.)”

Frances Harris, Export Manager at Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce added “We are delighted to be shortlisted as finalists for this award. It is especially pleasing to be recognised for all the hard work and commitment our export team puts in to make sure Hertfordshire’s businesses are in a prime position for export activity.”

The winners of the Excellence in International Trade award will be announced at the 2018 British Chambers of Commerce Business Awards Gala Dinner taking place on Thursday 29 November.
