Course overview

The way in which the UK trades with the EU and the rest of the world is undergoing the most radical change in modern times. How goods move across borders is changing and providing services in Europe is certain to become much more challenging. This will be the result of the new relationship that is being negotiated after Brexit between the Government and the EU that will come into force in 2021.

There are many details of the future relationship about which we already know a great deal. This practical and comprehensive one-day course uses a mix of training techniques to help you understand the many different ways your commercial environment will be transformed after Brexit. It will help you to make an informed assessment of the threats and illustrate the steps you can take now to protect your business and take advantage of the potential opportunities.

It is packed with practical advice and will equip you with in-depth knowledge and confidence to anticipate the complex issues related to your organisation and the post-Brexit trading environment. Our expert presenter will help you to identify the key elements directly affecting your business and focus attention on the relevant issues.
