%name International Week

Our third themed week, International Week, will be taking place week commencing Monday 19th February. Five days of activity will demonstrate how the North’s strong international connections facilitate trade, export and travel, with the region fast becoming a ‘Global North’.

We’ll be using the week as an opportunity to call on small and medium sized enterprises to grow, and begin their export journey.

We will shortly be sharing a toolkit of assets that can be adapted and used across your social media channels to promote International Week. We would also ask you to like and share the content posted directly on the Northern Powerhouse Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages on your own social media channels.

How partners can get involved:

  • Do you have any great facts or statistics about how your organisation has facilitated or benefited from the North’s global connections? Please send them to us and we’ll use them to create infographics or posts that will be shared on HM Government channels and can be added to the toolkit of assets.
  • Is there content you can create for the week, or an event that you can deliver in February, that brings international connections in the North to life? We can provide key messages to support your own communication tactics and may be able to create bespoke assets with you. Tell us what you plan to do, and we’ll make sure to share this across LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
  • If your business has received support from the Government to grow and export we want to hear from you and we welcome your support in promoting those opportunities.
  • Finally, do you have any supportive spokespeople who would be prepared to speak to interested media on key successes from your global connections?
