Get your business Brexit ready. Free seminars offering Brexit resilience training to owners and employees of Small and Medium sized businesses (SMEs) are being held - these are the July dates:
Attendees will find out what Brexit could mean for SMEs; how to use Brexit information resources; how to deal with uncertainty and spot opportunities and how to do business post-Brexit.
This practical, interactive face-to-face training session offers information and advice from experts to help SMEs anticipate the coming changes.
When the UK leaves the EU, the commercial environment as we know it will change. This may cause disruption for business, but could equally mean unexpected opportunities.
Cutting through the confusion and helping SMEs to make their businesses Brexit-ready, the Navigating Brexit for SMEs seminar is a London Growth Hub initiative, delivered by BrexitHelp.net.
With a Q&A at the end of each seminar and a certificate of attendance, there are FREE sessions across London for all small businesses with a turn-over of less than £44m, that have been trading for over six months.
The programme was launched in March to deliver free Brexit-readiness training to 1,500 entrepreneurs and SMEs across the capital.
