We are delighted to invite you to join us at the first UCLan Centre for SME Development Business Breakfast of 2019.
Brexit – what it means for you
Given the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, and the need for businesses to undertake preparations to take account of any resulting potential changes in the business environment, we will cover the following:
- Are we nearly there yet? A brief outline of the current state of play.
- What do the Brexit options mean? What is the difference between Norway-plus-plus, a customs union and a free trade agreement? What is the backstop and why is it important for Lancashire when it is all about the Irish border?
- What does this mean for my business? Should I undertake Brexit planning? If so, what sort of issues should I be considering?
We are delighted to have secured Prof. Philip B Whyman to share his expertise with you. Philip is Professor of Economics and Director of the Lancashire Institute for Economic and Business Research (LIEBR) at UCLan. His research includes the economics of Brexit (European economics), post-Keynesian economic policy, workplace flexibility, economic democracy and local economic development.
