On Wednesday evening Clive and I were invited to attend the NW UKTI (UK Trade and Investment) awards evening. I joined the Passport to Export scheme offered by the organisation a couple of years ago.
The scheme helped me appreciate that even as a self-employed person offering a niche service that trading abroad is possible.
They have written an article about me here:-
The venue was the exquisite Knowsley Hall, which I confess until this event didn't know existed!
Carpets to sink into, chandeliers galore and the lovely touch of current family photographs amidst the historical portraits.
Wow! I was so glad I wore a long dress with a 'swishy' skirt to hold up on the stairs!!! Ladies, you will know what I mean!
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to UKTI for a lovely evening. I had one of those 'how did I get from a psychotic wreck to here' moments!
