What will Brexit mean for YOUR Business?
Official figures indicated that the UK's service sector helped the economy to grow faster than expected in the three months after the Brexit vote.
So were the pessimists wrong?
The second Kent Vision LIVE Big Business Lunch will see over 100 invited business owners, managers and leaders from across Kent and the South East come together to join the debate with an expert interactive panel as they discuss the opportunities and threats Brexit presents. Focusing on the current Brexit issues but most likely covering Labour Force and Skills issues as well as Customs, Border controls and Infrastructure concerns.
Whatever sector you consider – Services, Agriculture, Hospitality, Manufacturing or the Digital Economy – it’s clear that exit from the EU will have a significant effect. Businesses need to plan with the best information they can access, or they risk missed opportunities, disruption or worse. To help inform that planning, we have brought together a panel of experts with a wealth of experience and a broad range of perspectives.
For the second year this event aims to help the Kent business community learn practical steps to help them thrive in a post-Brexit world, plan for the future and be ready to exploit the bigger opportunities in the months and years to come.
