“Our team spoke very positively about the delivery of the international training workshop from Inverness Chamber of Commerce, finding it easy to digest and conducted in a professional manner.  Sarah and Kara were very swift in their responses to questions we had for them in our initial contact, listening to our needs as an organisation, and customising the training specific to those needs, as we prepare our operations for Brexit and further export opportunities.  They also helped to connect us with another member organisation with a specific business challenge which was also incredibly helpful.  We highly recommend this service to any other business looking to ready themselves for exporting overseas.”

Claire Barnett, People Development Manager, Gael Force Group.
