AutoRek and Glasgow Chamber of Commerce come together for free International Business Development working lunch

AutoRek, a global financial controls, regulatory reporting and data management platform, have announced that they’ll be hosting an International Business Development working lunch in collaboration with Glasgow Chamber of Commerce next month.

The aim of the event is to bring together a number of business leaders from Glasgow’s SME community to discuss the International Business challenges they face and will provide them with an opportunity to work together to overcome such challenges. As a business with roots in Glasgow, AutoRek is keen to offer advice to these businesses, as well as give them the chance to collaborate with like-minded professionals and tackle issues head-on.

Headquartered in Glasgow, with offices in London, Edinburgh and New York, AutoRek’s solutions are deployed globally. They deliver a range of financial, operational and regulatory reporting control solutions. They have supported implementations in many leading organisations with projects including high volume data migrations, elimination of spreadsheets and manual processing, regulatory reporting, mitigation of operational and regulatory risk, and reduction in fast close processes. This makes AutoRek well placed in their collaboration with Glasgow Chamber of Commerce to assist these businesses in combating the challenges they face, Lyn Canavan (Head of Marketing) said:

“We have teamed up Glasgow Chamber of Commerce to host our first in a series of International Business Development working lunches. We believe that it presents a great opportunity for local business leaders to collaborate together sharing ideas and common challenges. We already have a good relationship with Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and we are looking to build upon this partnership and expand globally.”


The event will be held between 11:30 and 14:00 on the 5th of March in AutoRek’s offices at the Garment Factory on Montrose Street. A huge plus for these businesses is that the event will be totally free to attend, offering an excellent opportunity to network with other Glasgow-based business professionals and SMEs looking to work on these common issues and expand internationally. With Brexit on the horizon, the impact of it on SMEs has been and is a growing concern. Recently, Barclays has announced that it will be hosting ‘Brexit clinics’ in Scotland from March to support SMEs through Brexit, and, last week, Scotland’s finance secretary Derek Mackay told MSPs that the Scottish economy faces being pushed into a recession “worse than the 2008 financial crash” under a no-deal Brexit. With the loss of multi-million pounds worth of global trade contracts in such an event, it’s no surprise that Scottish SMEs are keen to prepare ahead of it.


AutoRek’s offices are located in the heart of Glasgow’s City Centre, just off of George Square and will be easily accessible for all attendees; just a 10-minute walk from Glasgow Central Station.
