"Man describing with hands to colleague

The business relationship between the Great State of Ohio and the United Kingdom is a significant one that is not widely known. In the lead up to Brexit and post the US election, Howard Kennedy brought together a panel for a timely discussion about its importance, trajectory and prospects.

As businesses are adapting to the recovering economy, C-suite executives are now able to consider their future commercial growth strategy. Highly competitive domestic markets, and the realisation that doing business internationally is much more attainable than it was prior to the events of this year, means that internationalisation is going to be a key factor in the future plans of many businesses.

The Ohio and UK business corridor is a significant and longstanding one. Many are surprised to learn that Ohio is the world's 21st biggest economy sitting between Saudi Arabia and Argentina, and that the UK is Ohio's largest European market. To throw light on this, Howard Kennedy is pleased to have put together a panel of well-known Ohio-UK supporters and promoters. They shared their valuable insights about this relationship and the opportunities in each market for businesses looking to establish their operations across the Atlantic.

The event was chaired by Howard Goulden from Howard Kennedy with panellists:

Sandra Morgan - Honorary Consul for the UK, State of Ohio

Edward (Ned) Hill, Ph.D. - Professor of Economic Development at The Ohio State University and Senior Faculty Associate in OSU’s Ohio Manufacturing Institute

Rob McNeill - Regional Director for the Midwest and Colorado at Department for International Trade

Justin Kocher - Director of International Business Development at JobsOhio

Ian Fuller - Deputy Director Europe at JobsOhio & Project Manager at OCO Global
