It will include an update on the latest Brexit timeline, an opportunity to trial the GBCC’s new Business Brexit Health-Check tool and a small number of presentations, followed by an opportunity for discussion. It is part of a series of free Brexit Clinics run by the GBCC.

It will be chaired by Henrietta Brealey, Director of Policy & Strategic Relationships at the GBCC with further presentations from Ananth Krishnan(Regional Director - Corporate and Business Banking, Midlands Region, HSBC UK) & Stuart Chapman (EU Exit Business Intelligence and Readiness Directorate, The Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy).

  • The latest insight & intelligence on Brexit
  • Practical tips that you can apply in your business to help get Brexit ready
