Series of Virtual Events

We understand the instruction to reduce face-to-face contact in order to reduce the spread of infection – we also recognise that businesses need the ability to continue in some form.

 

During the pandemic we are vowing to be a source of pragmatic, practical and valuable guidance so our business community is able to fight the fight.

 

Join our series of interactive webinars to support your business and employees as we navigate the coronavirus crisis. We will be joined by an expert from within our membership to provide key insights into topical subjects and ensure your business questions are addressed.

 

As a community, we must stick together to protect ourselves, our businesses and our workforce.

Change is inevitable as we will leave the single market, trade agreements we have now may be lost and others won, and our border and customs arrangements will be different from the way they operate today.
