Event description
In this webinar we will look at the implications for your export business, what it will mean for your current sales and future opportunities

About this Event

Our trading relationship with the EU is about to change forever. No longer will we be partners in the largest free trade area in the world. From 1st January 2021, trading with EU member countries will be largely the same as with any other country, whether there is a final trade agreement or not!

In this webinar we will look at the implications for your export business, what it will mean for your current sales and future opportunities. We will identify the challenges you need to address and how to prepare your business to Be Brexit Ready.

About the event

We all know trading with the EU will be different after the end of the transition period but have you considered all the implications, deal or no deal? This webinar will take you through the inevitable changes and what they mean for your business. We’ll look at how to tackle the challenges and the steps to take in order to maintain your current export business.

Don’t despair however. Being outside the EU will also bring opportunities. Trading with the EU will be like trading with any other country, so why not use your new skills and experience to broaden your horizons. We’ll look at the practical steps you can take to evaluate different markets and successfully expand your business.
