Business Development for members
“Failing to plan is planning to fail” – we’re all familiar with this popular adage but not many implement it. With current uncertainty about the terms of the country’s exit from the EU, it is evermore important to plan ahead in securing a future for your business.
We’ve therefore organised an informative event to prepare your business for BREXIT.
- Advice on priority government business messaging
- Best destinations to get info online
- Key No-Deal prep activity for SMEs to do now
Order of the evening:
- 5.30pm: Welcome drinks and introductions
- 6.00 to 6.30: Brexit preparedness presentation for SMEs & Q&A by Sietske De Groot (Tradepeers)
- 6.30 to 7.30: Networking and 1-2-1 Brexit advice sessions (Lambeth council and Brexit help)
TradePeers Ltd is a consultancy that specialises in helping organisations prepare for the UK’s exit from the EU. They identify and analyse political and regulatory developments that could impact the activities with EU or UK partners, and what the change from one legal order to another could mean for them. For example, the extent to which rules could stay the same (or not) for businesses in the poultry meat sector. TradePeers explains the nitty-gritty of the talks between the EU and the UK in plain English so organisations can optimise their planning.
