Following the recent Budget announcements, and the profound political and economic changes arising from the General Election and the UK’s departure from the EU, this event seeks to examine to what extent we are emerging from a prolonged period of uncertainty that has damaged business and investment confidence.
The latest intelligence will be presented, based upon substantial feedback from firms from right across the Sheffield City Region that participated in the Q1 Economic Survey.
This event also examines the capacity and adaptability of the modern workplace to respond to crisis-management scenarios. By necessity, contingency-planning has taken place to circumvent issues such as flooding, Brexit uncertainty, and the corona virus outbreak. A compered Q&A discussion between business exemplars and the audience should prove to be an informative and insightful session that tackles day-to-day topical concerns from an operating perspective.
