Event description

Description

Introduction:

According to influential sources, as many as 30,000 companies in the UK were established by Poles. Additionally, around 85,000 Polish nationals are self-employed or work as sole traders in the UK. In 2015, out of 650,000 new companies registered in the UK, over a quarter were registered by non-British citizens, and Polish nationals represented the largest proportion of that group.

On 23rd June 2016, Britain decided to leave the EU. Exactly 12 months later – on 23rd June 2017 – the FSB will stage its National Anglo-Polish Business Conference from 10.30am – 3.00pm at The Cutlers’ Hall, Sheffield. This event will focus on Brexit and all that it may mean for our ongoing trading opportunities with Polish businesses both in the UK and in Poland.

Our guest speakers will include:

  • Marek Niedzwiedz, FSB South Yorkshire Branch committee
  • Richard Edwards, Master Cutler
  • Paul Blomfield MP
  • Helen Walbey, FSB Director of Diversity
