Build your Business’ Resilience – free advice and workshops

 

Build your business’ resilience with our free workshops and advice clinics

Our business resilience service is designed to help businesses remain resilient and find new opportunities to sustain and grow, even during times of economic uncertainty.

Join us to explore how Brexit, a changing global economy and local consumer insights could result in changes for your business – and how you can get ahead of the competition.

Our workshops and advice clinics are best suited for sole traders, small or medium sized businesses looking to provide their clients, investors and employees with the assurance that they can and will continue to trade in a changing economic landscape.

Workshops

Each session is practical, interactive and completely free to attend. Our presenters are renowned EU and business experts. Our workshops are open to all London sole traders, small and medium sized businesses with a turn-over of less than £44m, and that have been trading for over six months.

Preparing for economic uncertainty

In the face of economic uncertainty, our advice and resources will help you identify the next steps you need to take to make sure your business remains successful.

Whether the UK leaves the EU with or without a deal – the way the UK does business with the EU will change. This may cause disruption for business, but could mean unexpected opportunities.

We’re here to guide you through these changes with up-to-the-minute advice from EU experts, helping you to spot new opportunities and navigate any risks.

Secure the future of your business

Our workshops and advice clinics will help you to:

  • Develop a Brexit plan – actions you can take to show partners, clients and suppliers you are prepared
  • Understand how Brexit will impact on import and export arrangements and what you need to do to maintain your trade with EU countries
  • Know what you need to do to for current and future EU staff, including new employment requirements
  • Navigate potential changes to contracts and insurance
  • Map key opportunities and risks for your business with sector-specific insights and case studies
