Beyond Leadership: International Business Conference on export and international trade at Lancaster University, March 2013

The pressure on businesses to survive and thrive through developing their export capacity are growing weekly. Hardly a day goes by without some politician or business leader exhorting businesses to develop their international links and export capabilities. But authentic and inspiring knowledge, advice and guidance can be hard to find. All too frequently, businesses can be offered superficial solutions to complex, strategic problems.

Beyond Leadership aims to reverse this trend by offering business leaders and acclaimed business academics the space, time and opportunities to meet, converse and establish meaningful long term dialogue between each other. The conference will offer opportunities to re-think strategic approaches to export and international trade and establish vital new links between the higher education sector, businesses and international partners.

Beyond Leadership is for business professionals, academics and researchers who specialise in business and those who practise leadership especially in international trade and export contexts. It is suitable for both those businesses who are new to export and existing, well established exporters. The conference will enable you to make new business and academic connections, develop new knowledge about export, develop new approaches to strategic development and increase your capacity to grow your business both nationally and internationally.

Co-produced by the Aspire Trust and the Grove International Management School, this event is for practitioners, academics and researchers and those who practice leadership in any kind of organisational setting especially in overseas trade.

The event will take place at Lancaster University on 21 and 22 March 2013. For further details, and to book your place please contact us at
