This webinar is hosted by the D2N2 Growth Hub, East Midlands Chamber and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19 earlier this year, the UK spent 3 ½ years debating a withdrawal agreement with the EU. The separation process thus far has been something akin to a military assault course and there are many obstacles to be navigated before the end of the transition period – still scheduled for December 2020. 

How well are you preparing for your part in this? Will your business be leading from the front having undertaken adequate preparation of both staff and processes so that the obstacles are easier to conquer? Or are you a ‘have a go’ hero who is planning to join the course at the last minute or part way through and see what happens?  

Whether a seasoned importer/ exporter or new to the process, this webinar will give an overview of the assault course and walk you through some of the main obstacles, whilst giving you some tips on how to get your business in the best possible shape for the challenge.
