International Business Forum - Brexit Clarity with the Department for Exiting the EU

15th April 2019

Sheffield Chamber of Commerce are delighted to announce details of our upcoming International Business Forum event, taking place on Tuesday 18th June at Sheffield Chamber of Commerce.

Kirsty Long from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy will travel to Sheffield to offer clarity on the Brexit deadlock and offer support and guidance to businesses to help them prepare for any eventuality resulting from Brexit. Whether you are an importer or exporter, or you are just concerned about Britain's economic future, then do not miss this exclusive event, which is free to attend for members of Sheffield Chamber. During the event, Andrew Hulse, the new Chair of the International Business Forum will set out the aims and objectives of the recently refreshed and relaunched forum. Commenting on his new role, Andrew said 'Whilst the benefits of exporting continue, Sheffield businesses may question the opportunities and be wary of the challenges in the changing landscape ahead.' Andrew went on to say 'For this reason the role of the International Business Forum is more important than ever. In mirroring the Department for International Trade's own strategy objectives, we will Inform, Connect and Encourage local companies, providing support at a time where it is needed more than ever. During the meeting, delegates will also hear from Dr Tom Buckley from the University of Sheffield Business Management School.
