Brexit Support, Events and Training for Businesses
The Black Country Chamber of Commerce (BCCC) has teamed up with the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA), Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce (CWCC) and Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC) to scale up existing support for West Midlands businesses to help them prepare for the end of the Brexit transition period.
Over the coming months we will be providing a range of FREE events, resources and training programmes for businesses based in the West Midlands Combined Authority area to help them navigate this period and get ready for 2021.
