Another Success at the International Trade Club Breakfast

Event Date: 03 October 2019

‘We joined the International Trade Club over two years ago now and the support and information received so far has been invaluable.  The breakfast club is an opportunity to meet and learn from likeminded people about their inspirational stories and experiences in areas we often fear to tread.   Even as a complete novice you are guaranteed a warm welcome and the very best of advice’ 

Deborah Smith, Fennel UK Ltd


Another successful international trade club breakfast meeting concluded Thursday 3rd October with our members joining us at the Mecure Dunkenhalgh hotel in Accrington.
