CHAMBER DELIVERS SERIES OF BEIS ‘GET READY FOR BREXIT' EVENTS
Throughout October, the Black Country Chamber hosted a series of Brexit Readiness events in partnership with the Department for Business, Energy and the Industrial Strategy (BEIS) delivered across all areas of the Black Country.
Delegates heard from a range of guest speakers on crucial Brexit-related business policy issues and the important steps they need to think about to get ready for Brexit. Across the four weeks, the events covered topics such as the Home Office Settlement Scheme, Regulatory Divergence, Compliance and Contracts, Customs Procedures, GDPR and Data Protection and Intellectual Property. Following the presentations from our experts, delegates were then invited to 1-1 conversations and could take the opportunity of asking any specific questions for their business.
