Discussing Brexit: The impact on small businesses.
Whatever your political persuasion, wherever you placed your cross on the ballot paper on the 23 June 2016, events are now unfolding that will change the economic landscape of the UK for generations to come. With a panel of trusted experts helping to answer the many questions business owners have.
Working with the East Midlands Chamber on a Brexit Support Programme
Small businesses have less scope to spend on contingency plans to prepare for Brexit and as a result have taken fewer, if any, measures. Yet these businesses, with fewer than 50 employees, account for 99.3 per cent of UK firms, almost 60 per cent of private-sector employment and almost 40 per cent of turnover.
While the FTSE100 firms may get the headlines, it is small businesses who are the backbone of the British economy, and who may hold the key to whether or not Brexit is a success.
Working with Love Business to highlight the opportunities
The main theme of the panel event is to highlight the opportunities, because the mainstream media only appear to be interested in a Doomsday version of what will happen. As a business based within the East Midlands region, there are lots of positives - whatever happens with Brexit. The debate will highlight what’s going on in the region and how businesses can capitalise on these opportunities.
