RRL, Coodes Solicitors and Natwest are teaming up to bring a free business breakfast event to Penzance on Thursday 13th December, in association with the Penzance Business Breakfast.
The event, entitled ‘Penwith Business Endurance Post-Brexit’ will focus on what businesses in the Penwith area could consider to prepare for Brexit, with the date of the UK’s withdrawal now fast approaching.
Taking place at The Exchange, Penzance on Thursday 13th December, 8.30-10am, the event will give businesses a chance to hear speakers from the business, corporate and academic worlds explain how they believe Brexit could affect businesses and how they can prepare themselves for life after Brexit. Amanda Winwood, Managing Director of Made for Life Organics and Dr Joanie Willett, Lecturer in Politics at the University of Exeter will be speaking at the event in addition to speakers from Coodes and RRL.
RRL Partner Mark Williams said, “Penzance is a fantastic place to do business, with a wide array of opportunities for businesses. With the date of the UK’s departure getting ever closer, it is now vitally important that everyone ensures that they are planning for life outside of the EU and assessing what effect it might have on their business.”
Sonya Bassett of Coodes explained that businesses have reason to be positive in the months ahead, saying: “We have seen many businesses preparing themselves for Brexit. For example, by reviewing supplier and employment contracts. The general consensus is positive: that they can not only endure but, with a positive attitude, they can thrive. The speakers at this event are a fantastic example of that positivity and the way the businesses in our region take on challenges and turn them around to achieve results.”
Esther Barrand, Business Growth Enabler at Natwest said, “The Penwith area has many fantastic and longstanding businesses that have already succeeded in a challenging economy. I have no doubt that they will be able to rise to the challenge of life post-Brexit but hopefully this event can support their preparation.”
A locally sourced Cornish buffet breakfast will be provided free of charge, and attendees are being asked to bring along a donation for the Penzance Food Bank.
