The Outlook After Brexit

The biggest issue on the agenda for all businesses is the impact of Brexit and its effect on the UK's economy and consumer confidence. Now with two dates on the table–12 April for a no deal and 22 May for a deal, to leave the EU, uncertainty still reigns.

  • Examining how manufacturers have been preparing for the worst with brands making decisions to invest elsewhere hitting the headlines.
  • What will be the implications for the sector and UK business as a whole?
  • Drawing on his co-authored book ‘Keeping the Wheels on the Road–UK Automotive after Brexit’, what will the sector be up against in the Brexit aftermath?
  • Bailey will aim to deliver as much clarity and insight as possible to what is currently an ever-shifting landscape.
