Our brand new Let’s Talk Digital series consists of bite sized topical digital trade interviews with business experts. Delivered via Teams, these virtual drop-ins provide an opportunity for you to first enjoy an interview, and then take part with your own questions to our host.

About this masterclass

We are kicking off our first episode of the series on Black Friday (26th November) at 11am with honest and inspirational Barry Tong, a DIT Export Champion, Founder of Sol Retail, and IOD Director of the Year finalist.

Barry will be interviewed on the topic of Amazon – selling to the world, and promises to cover some great tips on how UK sellers can navigate the choppy Amazon waters to maximise international sales growth.
