The Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, Black Country Chamber of Commerce and Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce are working with the West Midlands Combined Authority on a programme of activity aimed at helping businesses navigate Brexit.
This workshop is aimed at business support providers & public sector employees from across the GBS LEP area who engage with employers as part of your day to day work. It will provide a high level briefing on the current and potential challenges or opportunities businesses are or may be experiencing as a result of Brexit and the support available to them.
Brexit represents a significant amount of change for local businesses. As it stands, businesses are already being impacted by Brexit related uncertainty. When the UK leaves the EU it will represent the biggest fundamental change to the UK’s political and trading relationships for a generation. Making sure that businesses know where to go for support when they need it will be critical.
This workshop aims equip delegates with enough knowledge to navigate and signpost to the local Brexit business support environment and help make sure local businesses are receiving the support they need.
