Brexit & planning for change: how businesses can prepare

27 November 2018

16:00 - 19:30

Bird & Bird, 12 New Fetter Lane, London, EC4A 1JP

With Brexit now only months away, its impact on business is very prominent. Critical issues include employee sourcing and retention, data transfers and supply chain logistics.

Whilst the final outcomes remain unclear, to help businesses prepare for the impacts of deal or no deal, we have gathered together speakers from Bird & Bird to share their insights on important topics which businesses should consider. We are also delighted to be joined by the FT's Political Editor, George Parker as our key note speaker.

This event is aimed at leaders and decision makers from businesses of all types and sizes. We hope you can join us.
