Brexit & The Public Sector

Brexit & The Public Sector…………

The Black Country Chamber of Commerce are inviting public sector businesses and employees from across the region to join them at their next Brexit event as the country moves once again closer to yet another Brexit deadline date.

In a period dominated by Brexit uncertainty, it is crucial that public sector employees are aware of the wide range of Brexit support available for businesses in their region.

As such, the Black Country, Greater Birmingham and Coventry and Warwickshire Chambers of Commerce have been chosen by the West Midlands Combined Authority to deliver a bespoke package of Brexit support for businesses and public servants across the Combined Authority.

As part of this funded project, the Chamber are holding a half-day workshop outlining the various packages of support available for business-facing public servants in the Black Country. Free to attend 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.
