Brexit Awareness Boot Camps – preparing you for all outcomes

A series of awareness boot-camps across Sussex will be held in October to address the many questions businesses are asking. We’ll have on hand experts from a variety of specialist fields to answer your questions. The dates for these workshops will be announced soon across our website, social media and newsletters.


ALL Business Brexit Awareness Boot-Camp events are open to ALL businesses and free to attend. These events will be a collaborative approach with the Local Enterprise Partnerships, County, District and Borough Councils, Town Chambers, other business organisations, local professional firms and experts.


Why is this needed?


The British Chambers of Commerce network survey of over 1,500 firms from across the country, carried out in July, found that two-fifths (41%) of UK businesses have not done a Brexit risk assessment. Those that trade internationally (63%) are far more likely to have carried out a risk assessment on the impact of Brexit to their business than their counterparts that trade in the UK only (35%).

Sussex Chamber of Commerce, working closely with the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) is your first point of contact to understand how Brexit is going to impact your business.


We have numerous resources available for companies to help them become aware of all the key issues that could, and in many instances will, affect their business.


Resources include:


Business Brexit Checklist


This checklist has been created to help you consider the changes that Brexit may bring to your firm, and to help business planning at both operational and Board levels. While not all issues will affect all business, almost all businesses will be affected in some way – find out what you will need to take into consideration and where you need to take action now.


No-Deal Guidance Dashboard


The British Chambers of Commerce has evaluated the quality of official guidance to assess whether it provides sufficiently clear, complete, visible, timely and actionable information which businesses can use to prepare for change.



What the Chamber network is demanding – The Business Brexit Risk Register


The Business Brexit Risk Register - Please take your time to review the current state of progress on a range of 24 business-critical questions being asked on Brexit by businesses across the UK. These are the issues the BCC is actively lobbying for clarity on.


We want to hear from you!


Should you wish to raise any business concerns regarding Brexit to the Sussex Chamber please email: 


Please begin the subject of the email with BREXIT.


Your inputs will be forwarded to the BCC and will add weight to their lobbying activities. We represent your interests – let us know your issues!


Further resources


The Government has also launched a new hub for no deal Brexit information. It has dedicated sections for businesses, individuals, UK nationals in the EU and EU nationals in the UK.
