Event Overview

In the second 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.

At our last webinar our panellists talked about the opportunities that Brexit represents for NI as a very attractive place to do business and the ease that we can dispatch goods to Europe with no documentation. However, as one expert put it “Data is the new oil” and businesses can be prepared by ensuring the correct data processes are in place ahead of the 31 December deadline.

Our expert panel including Deirdre Maguire of InterTrade Ireland, Seamus Leheny of Logistics UK provide solid advice and critical information to help support businesses to prepare for Brexit. Colin Mullan, Managing Director of FindInsurance NI, a locally-owned business with nearly 50 years’ experience in Northern Ireland, will talk us through the Brexit challenges his business faces.
