Carolyn Bentley – International Trade Specialist
Carolyn is an international trade specialist with over 25 years’ experience in that field, both hands-on in the manufacturing and service sectors and later as an adviser. She is a graduate in modern languages, with a high level of fluency in both French and German.
After many years working with clients on behalf of the Department for International Trade on both a one-to-one basis and also leading trade missions, she now helps businesses independently with specific projects ranging from export strategy and implementation to organising participation at international trade shows and multilingual support to help them increase sales.
Other areas of expertise are in researching and developing new overseas markets and export logistics – helping clients through the minefield of export documentation and procedures.
Taking a practical and common sense approach, she can guide clients through the challenges that SMEs face when approaching international trade, helping them to avoid costly pitfalls.
