Kelly becomes the latest entrepreneur to agree to work with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), and other parts of government, to promote UK excellence internationally.
As part of her advocate role Kelly will work with UKTI sharing her knowledge and insights in international business, by giving practical support and mentoring SMEs and entrepreneurs taking their first steps into trading in international markets.
One of UKTI’s key aims is to work with more small and medium-sized enterprises to encourage them to export and support them until they are able to confidently trade overseas without assistance. Kelly has been invited by the Government to help inspire UK companies grow internationally.
Speaking of the appointment, Kelly says: “I feel honoured to be working with UKTI and I look forward to working closely with SMEs and entrepreneurs to help them grow and take the next step into international markets.”
