Help design the future of export support at UKTI 'Export Jams'
UKTI wants businesses to help design the future of export support at workshops across the UK on 28 July 2015.
UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) are holding nine workshops around the UK on 28 July called ‘Export Jams’. These workshops look at how the government provides export support to companies in the future.
Export Jam is being run by UKTI’s Ideas Lab and the Cabinet Office Policy Lab. The South West Workshop will take place in Bristol at Smith and Williamson, Portwall Place, Redcliffe or you can take part online by joining a live stream of business ideas.
Each Export Jam will see professional facilitators work with a roomful of people from all kinds of backgrounds to work in teams to generate, develop and test big new ideas. Jams are typically very high energy events where people are encouraged to speak up, think outside the box, and explore new tools and skills like design thinking.
UKTI are looking for companies to attend an Export Jam - either at their most local venue or online, in order to gather information on how they might make it easier for companies to trade internationally. Companies will have the opportunity to network, share insights, and work with others to create prototypes of the products and services you need in the future.
These sessions will identify, test and generate new ideas that will make a difference to companies who want to export or are exporting already.
