Each quarter, the Sheffield City Region Chambers are hosting flagship events in partnership with the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership and Growth Hub and Sheffield University Management School, to share the Quarterly Economic Review results and what they mean for business.
This event will focus on recent issues with companies like Carillon and the impending changes because of Brexit, with the fact that many organisations are identifying cashflow as a risk. Control of cashflow is further exacerbated by extremely variable payment terms. The event is designed to explore the variables at an operational level so we can feed the issues back into the British Chambers of Commerce and local and national government for inclusion when business matters are being discussed.
