Newcastle University Business School are delighted to continue to deliver the Herbert Loebl Export Academy, work that was launched under the leadership of Dr Herbert Loebl OBE, BSc, MPhil, Phd, Hons, DSc, C Eng.
Dr Herbert Loebl, an alumnus and honorary graduate of Newcastle University, founded the Joyce-Loebl Electronics and Scientific Instrument Group and has played a leading role in developing the economic fortunes of the North East region.
At the 2010 North East Business Executive of the Year Awards ceremony he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award.
The 2013 Herbert Loebl Export Academy builds upon the 2012 and 2011 Herbert Loebl Export Academy programme. Delivered in partnership with RTC North and UKTI, the Herbert Loebl Export Academy offers regional young and developing businesses the chance to explore with expert practitioners how and why they could consider exporting and the practicalities of getting their business export ready.
Exporting can transform businesses by developing new markets for existing products and services or indeed, developing the product offering in response to international requirements and preferences. With proximity to airports and ports and the growth of online trading, businesses in the region can be well placed to develop their international businesses.
The Academy will provide access for a selected cohort to a series of participative workshops, case studies and mentoring from regional businesses.
Places on the Herbert Loebl Export Academy are limited. If you would like to apply for a place on this series of free business breakfast workshops, please complete our brief online Herbert Loebl Export Academy application form.

The workshops will include presentations from experienced exporters, expert guidance from advisors from UKTI and other business support organisations, and up to date research from Newcastle University Business School academics in the field of international business.
Where possible, our postgraduate students can also offer to undertake consultancy projects for you to explore in detail a particular export market or topic of interest, which can add detail to your export plans.

The Academy follows on from the successful Herbert Loebl Export Workshop “Building for Export Success” which took place on 12th January 2010.
Herbert learned the hard way, starting with only £200 worth of capital and working from under a small railway arch in Newcastle in 1951. Dr Loebl’s company grew, was successful and became an internationally significant manufacturer of electronic and scientific instruments, employing over 400 members of staff.
