Kent Business School, in partnership with Santander UK and Produced in Kent, invite you to this year’s first Business Soundbites event on Wednesday 21 March 2018.
As it becomes increasingly apparent that the Brexit phase 2 trade negotiations are complex in nature and will take more time than initially anticipated, UK companies are understandably anxious about the impending changes in trade regulations. At the recent Kent Business Summit a round table discussion on export reflected this growing apprehension within the Kent business community.
During this Business Soundbites session, organised in partnership with Santander UK and Produced in Kent, we will be looking at the expected changes in trade regulations under three different Brexit scenarios, explore possible ways to prepare for those changes, and try to debunk some of the myths around trading outside Europe.
This Business Soundbites event will take place at Kent Business School on Wednesday 21 March 2018 17:00 – 20:00 and is free to attend.
