Business Resilience Programme

The Building Business Resilience Programme aims to ensure that businesses in the East Midlands are informed and prepared to deal with any challenges that may result from the UK’s departure from the European Union, as well as to help them spot and capitalise upon opportunities that may result. The Programme offers a range of services to businesses:

· Building Business Resilience – Getting Ready Briefings

The Getting Ready briefings will combine a keynote talk from EU exit expert, Neil Warwick OBE, giving the latest insights from government, interactive support, an introduction to the Are You Ready? interactive audit tool and a chance to network with specialist advisers and support organisations from across the region who can provide you with specific advice and help.

· Building Business Resilience – Making Sense of the Next Steps seminars

Using the Are You Ready? interactive audit tool, these seminars will help you to identify what steps you need to take before December 2020 and develop a plan to help you get there on time, as well as thinking beyond the EU exit transition period and the opportunities and challenges that change brings to ensure your business can get fit for the future.

· Building Business Resilience – Sector Opportunity Briefings and Workshops 

Sector-specific workshops for businesses in the Transport and Logistics, Engineering and Manufacturing, Tourism and Food and Drink sectors to help businesses in these sectors who may face particular challenges.
