Your membership. Your Club.


Forbes Solicitors, John Pickervance head of the Commercial department and Manufacturing & Engineering sector, will cover T&Cs and sales contracts in the context of international trade. John will outline the importance of ensuring that your legal documentation is suitable for international trade, clauses of particular interest and the implications of failing to take the appropriate steps.

John-Joe McGonagle, Northern Industrial Ltd, will discuss the company’s experiences and challenges with exporting overseas. Traditionally a service provider to local manufacturers since 1978, NI began exporting worldwide in 2008 when they delved into e-commerce to sell spare parts they had acquired over the years. Since then, they’ve shipped to over 140 countries, been on a vast learning curve and won several international trade awards including the International Trade Club outstanding exporter achievement in 2014.

"The International Trade Club is an invaluable forum in which to exchange views with other exporters, and to keep up to date with new developments in a rapidly changing global business environment. In addition, we get to enjoy a great cooked breakfast.”
