The opportunity to support local businesses and help them bring down costs to assist them in competing within the market is inspiring. I look forward to playing a key role in consulting with them and supporting their growth in international markets.”

In his new role as International Trade Coach, Julian will be working closely with our International Trade team, providing businesses access to events and peer to peer learning, as well as one to one intensive support aimed at helping businesses make the first steps into new markets, who are new to import / export or are seeking growth.
