  • Workshop attendees will gain a clearer understanding of the support offer to MSBs
    Trade associations can help influence UKTIs mid-term strategy and short term tactical support to MSBs and access potential funding to run complimentary projects and events
    UKTI can help cement existing ATO membership from MSB by showing value added support via the ATO
    UKTI can also potentially help identify new member businesses for STOs throught our collaborative work programmes

    What is the call to action for Trade Associations to take from this workshop?
    ATOs will be asked to contribute to the workshop and help shape future UKTI thinking.
    They will also be asked to consider referring potential MSBs members/customer to UKTI to participate in the MSB Programme.
    A single point of contact in UKTI to simplify the referral process.

    3. 3. The context • Mid-Sized Business (MSB) company profile is £25 to £250 million turnover • MSBs vital to Govt’s long term economic plan • In Brazil on 8 April Chancellor announced UKTI’s enhanced MSB programme • Lord Livingston sees re-focusing UKTI on MSBs a top priority • Signals transformational change in way UKTI does business
    4. 4. The MSB programme rationale • 9,100 MSBs in the UK. • MSBs represent just 0.2% of UK firms, they account for one fifth of private sector output and 20% employment. • MSB exporters are currently low-intensity exporters – 55 per cent of MSBs export less than 25 per cent of their turnover • Only 17% of UK MSBs generate revenues outside EU compared to 25% in Germany and 30% in Italy • CBI estimates that if reach full potential would be worth £20Bn to £50Bn to UK economy. • In summary... Lots of untapped potential
    5. 5. Strategic direction • Doesn’t mean we are no longer interested in smaller firms – Passport and overseas FCO support remain key UKTI services • But in future UKTI will be segmenting its market between mid –sized and smaller firms • Intensive, long-term account management approach for MSBs • Closer working with partners organisations who share the same motives

    8. 8.
