Free event to help businesses get Brexit ready

Galway Daily news EU treaty rights for UK citizens in Ireland post-Brexit

The British Irish Chamber of Commerce and Ulster Bank are holding a free event in Galway for businesses looking beyond the Brexit at the end of this month and wondering how they’ll have to change their game.

The ‘Supporting Business in a Post Brexit World’ event will take place at the Connacht Hotel next Tuesday, October 22 from 8am to 10am.

This event will be the first of the #BusinessBeyondBrexit series which will look at the impact of Brexit, its eventual outcome and the business landscape beyond it.

It aims to both look at what the broader economic shifts will be after, or if, Britain leaves the EU, combined with a regional focus on the issues specific to local businesses.

The event will feature an economic overview from Ulster Bank, as well as a case study presentation from a local business followed by a panel discussion.

Speakers at the event include Simon Barry, Chief Economist at Ulster Bank; Katie Daughen, Head of Brexit Policy for the British Irish Chamber of Commerce; Breda Fox, Head of Enterprise for the Galway LEO; and John O’Loughlin, Head of Investment for the Department of International Trade from the British Embassy.

Attendance is free for this event at the Connact Hotel, but place must be registered online in advance. Registration will be at 7:30am before the day kicks off at 8.
