Brexit roundtable event to take place at MIRA Technology Institute

Friday 18th of October 2019 11:42 AM

Businesses working in the transport and logistics sectors across Coventry and Warwickshire are being urged to attend an event aimed at helping them prepare for Brexit.

The Brexit Resilience Roundtable: Transport and Logistics is being held at MIRA Technology Institute in Nuneaton from 9am-11am on Friday, October 25.

The event, which is being organised by the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) Growth Hub, will provide a forum for discussion around how businesses can gear themselves up, develop de-risking strategies and understand how they can increase internal capacity to thrive in the face of uncertainty.

Expert speakers will provide useful insight, case studies and advice around how businesses can manage and implement innovation, diversification and organisational change to decrease the risk of external factors.

There will also be the chance to discuss with other professionals the challenges businesses are facing and to understand the opportunities in the transport and logistics sector.

Craig Humphrey, managing director at the CWLEP Growth Hub, said: “The transport and logistics sector employees thousands of people across Coventry and Warwickshire, generating millions of pounds in revenue every year.

“It is vital that businesses throughout the region are kept informed while the country prepares to leave the European Union.

“Many of these businesses operate across the European Union Customs Union and to that end there will be many questions about how Brexit will impact on operations.

“The CWLEP Growth Hub understands these concerns and is committed to providing companies within the transport and logistics sector across Coventry and Warwickshire with business intelligence and support while Brexit is resolved.”

The event is one of a series of major events across Coventry and Warwickshire this month aimed at preparing local businesses for Brexit.

Humphrey continued: “I am urging all businesses in the region to attend the Brexit Resilience Roundtable.

“Not only will there be an opportunity to raise concerns with industry experts, the event will enable businesses to connect with one another to share experiences and best practices.

“It will also provide attendees with a chance to discuss the opportunities that exist in the transport and logistics sector.”
