Brexit Readiness

Brexit Readiness


This programme is now closed

In October RTC North held a series of Brexit Business Readiness events across the North to find out what actions your business needs to take to prepare. 

The events will combine a keynote address, interactive support, advice stands and in-depth sessions led by subject matter experts. They will provide you with specific business-focused advice and help.

We welcomed one of the  UK’s top EU Competition lawyers and Brexit expert, Neil Warwick OBE, to get the facts on Brexit and how to mitigate any impact.

The events were  delivered by RTC North Ltd. on behalf of the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy.  Brexit will impact you and your business regardless of:

  • Whether you provide a product or a service
  • Your sector
  • If you import or export
  • If you employ people

About Neil Warwick OBE: Neil is the National Portfolio Chair for Brexit for the Federation of Small Businesses and has given evidence to Select Committees in the house of Commons and the House of Lords on the impact of Brexit. He provides businesses with advice on the practical implications of how Brexit will affect their industry, and, as Chair of the North East Sub-Committee for European Structural Investment Funding, Neil has been consulted on the structure and purpose of the proposed Shared Prosperity Fund for the UK.
