Quarterly Economic Review Breakfast: Q1

Date: 17 Apr 2018

Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Each quarter, the Sheffield City Region Chambers are hosting flagship events in partnership with the Sheffield University Management School to share the Quarterly Economic Review results and what they mean for business.

This event will focus on recent issues with companies like Carillon and the impending changes because of Brexit, with the fact that many organisations are identifying cash flow as a risk. Control of cash flow is further exacerbated by extremely variable payment terms. The event is designed to explore the variables at a operational level so we can feed the issues back into the British Chambers of Commerce for inclusion in things like the Brexit negotiations.
