Preparing for Brexit - Business-Facing Public Sector Employees
16 Jul 2019 09:30 - 12:30
Non members: Free
As part of this funded project, we are holding a half-day workshop outlining the various packages of support available for business-facing public sector employees in the Black Country. The session will begin at 09:30 and run until 12:30 on Tuesday 16th July in the Sir Jack Restaurant at the Molineux football stadium, home of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.
This event will see guest speakers from government and other key stakeholders, discuss how the UK’s exit from the EU will change the local business landscape. The aim of the session is to ensure that LEPs, Growth Hubs and Local Authorities understand the various means of support available for businesses in the Black Country. From Chamber and government support to regulatory changes and where to signpost, this workshop will cover a lot of information, whilst allowing for audience Q & A.
