GLE oneLondon's Business Club: How London businesses benefit from the International Games?

Date & Time: 
Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 18:00 to 20:00

GLE oneLondon’s ‘Business Club’ has become a well-established networking event within London’s small and medium enterprise community. Previous business clubs have covered major worldwide sporting events including the 2008 Beijing Games, the 2010 Commonwealth Games in India, the 2010 Football World Cup in South Africa and the 2012 Games in London. Our next business club, on 15th January will focus on the involvement of women entrepreneurs in the International Games Market.

Speakers will include:

Nicola Bridgett, a UK Trade & Investment London International Trade Adviser who will address the financial benefits of international trade,

Sara Gatoff from Buying Vision Ltd, who will discuss the development of product strategy when visiting overseas markets, and

Sara Ellen Williams from Really Red Shoes, who will share her experiences as a business woman involved in international trade, particularly in relation to international games.

As usual there will be time to network over light refreshments after the speeches. This will be an exciting and informative evening with the chance to get to know other businesswomen with an international business outlook. We very much look forward to welcoming you on 15th January. The networking event is free and forms part of our “International Gateway 4 Suppliers” programme, funded by the London Development Agency and supported by our strategic partner UK Trade & Investment. This programme helps businesses to access commercial opportunities connected to the 2012 Games.
