On Friday 24 June 2016, the world woke up to the first day of a new chapter as we digested the result of the UK referendum voting in favour of leaving the EU and David Cameron’s announcement that he would step down as Prime Minister. Instantly there were discussions of what opportunities there were for British business now that the decision for the UK to leave the EU had been made – and how businesses can make the most of them.

Soon after the vote we held a breakfast with Something Big, where businesspeople who attended the event, were mostly looking for clarity. Generally the issues covered were, long term planning for policy, development, and the economy, and more specifically Access to the European Economic Community Common Market for British businesses, Procurement, Regulations and Freedom of movement.

Exactly one year on from the vote we are hosting another breakfast with Something Big looking to re-visit some of the challenges businesses are facing, and a practical guide to what businesses should be doing and thinking about now article 50 has been triggered.

Mike Spicer, Director of Research and Economics at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC). Mike directs the BCC's policy research and survey programme. He represents the BCC externally on business policy and matters relating to local economic development

Mike will give his views on the implications business are facing and what can be expected for them in the Brexit negotiations, but you are the ingredient to make sure we understand the real issues on the ground.

Please come and share your knowledge and experiences.
