As Brexit continues to dominate the headlines we look at the facts and how to plan for longer term global trading activity with thus far undetermined trading conditions.
This interactive course is designed to give you the most up to date position on Brexit and how this might affect your business, and to give you some guidance on how to address issues this may raise. Furthermore, we will explore risk in international trade and how to identify and mitigate this in order to make informed decisions about opportunities for export growth.

Workshop Programme in detail

• The facts about Brexit 
• Key legislation
• Perceived challenges
