Doncaster Business Insight Breakfast Briefing
Join us for this important breakfast briefing to hear the results of the Doncaster Business Insight Survey for the first quarter of 2020.
This quarter’s survey results feature hot topic questions relating to International Trade, and following the DBI Survey Dan fell, CEO of Doncaster Chamber, will facilitate a discussion panel focussing on the business barriers to International Trade, how these can be overcome and the benefits it can bring.
Featuring representatives from the Department for International Trade and a range of local businesses already trading outside of the UK the discussion is the ideal opportunity ask questions and hear about others experiences, using these to inform your own potential business growth opportunities.
Benefits from attending: The event is the first public opportunity to hear the survey results first-hand and is designed to enable business-leaders from across Doncaster to keep their finger on the pulse of the latest economic and investment conditions.
