With Brexit on the horizon, overseas growth is more important than ever before. This award will recognise companies that have achieved notable success in international sales. This success could be measured either in terms of the number of orders or in adopting an entrepreneurial, innovative approach to breaking into new markets. Judges will want to hear how the business has overcome any problems, how it has used the help available from organisations such as Department of International Trade, formerly known as UKTI and its strategy for the future, with particular regard to how the business plans to manage its expansion – in a sustainable way.
