Brexit is a disaster for businesses. That's the standout finding from our report, Brexit and Businesses: In Their Own Words.
Based on testimonies and feedback from businesses up and down the country, the report highlights multiple challenges, from new Brexit red tape, a lack of workers, and huge hikes in overheads.
The struggles of businesses need to be heard, and the evidence we've collected shows the urgent need for our politicians to improve our trade relationship with Europe.
To hear more about the report’s findings and about what’s happening next in our campaign to improve prospects for UK business by regaining access to the EU Single Market, join us for this panel event online on Wednesday, 22 November, 6.30 - 7.30pm.
Chaired by the author of the report, Maura McKeon (Local Campaigns Manager), we will hear from Barbara Callender, Baroness Joyce Quin and small business owners, about their views on the report, the impact of Brexit on business today and what we, as a movement, can do next.
In this free and interactive webinar, you will have the opportunity to pitch your questions to the panel.
