Insight breakfast: Build a world-leading export business

17 May, 2017, 7:30 am - 10:00 am

Vision West Nottinghamshire College and Nottingham Trent University (NTU) are working together on an exciting series of free insight sessions and masterclasses.  These events are all themed around business innovation, success and development.  They also provide the opportunity to network. 

Introduction to Insights

The insight sessions last for two hours and are delivered by business experts. They run from 8am-10am with the opportunity for breakfast and networking from 7.30am.  These sessions run monthly from January to October 2017 in the new university centre on the college’s Derby Road campus. Each session covers a different topic and is often complemented by a full-day masterclass. What’s more, since these are part-funded through ERDF, attendance at these events is completely free.

Insight Content

This month’s insight breakfast session is subtitled Expanding Internationally for SMEs.  Delivered by Malcolm Hall MBE of HallFast Industrial Supplies, you will find out more about this multi-award winning company and its exponential export growth.  To complement this, there is an exporting masterclass, jointly delivered with DIT, scheduled for Wednesday 20 September.

Malcolm Hall MBE is the founder and Managing Director of Hall-Fast Industrial Supplies, which he established in 2006.  Eleven years on Hall-Fast is one of the fastest growing and most successful in its sector.  This has largely been as a result of Malcolm’s pioneering exporting approach, capitalising on the power of digital to grow markets internationally.  Hall-Fast currently export over 200,000 products to 92 countries.

In this unique insight into Hall-Fast’s incredible success story, Malcolm will share hints and tips for any business seeking expansion overseas.  Not only that but he will also bust some of the myths surrounding international trade.  Furthermore, he will encourage local SMEs to dip their toe in the waters of international expansion.  Find out more about Hall-Fast here.
