In the third webinar of our Countdown to Brexit series our expert panel assesses the current knowns and unknowns of Brexit and how this will impact on Northern Ireland’s unique trading position with Europe. At this critical time, it is essential that businesses are clear on the steps they need to take now.

Time is of the essence and deal or no deal, businesses must act to protect trade flows and to be alert to changes and new guidance. Registering for Trader Support Services is highly advisable, and our panel will explain why.

Our expert panel including Deirdre Maguire of InterTrade Ireland, Seamus Leheny of Logistics UK and Johanna Cunningham from Arthur Cox provide solid advice and critical information to help support businesses to prepare for Brexit.
