Enterprise Ireland has taken to the road for May and June to host a number of regional discussions to assist companies in preparing and planning for Brexit. The events provide a platform for robust discussion, information and practical advice for those preparing for Brexit. Hear first-hand how other companies are putting plans in place for Brexit. Members of the Enterprise Ireland Brexit and Global team will give insights into the challenges and opportunities Brexit presents and the practical supports available. The events are also an opportunity to network with your peers.
These events are suited to companies who may have an exposure to Brexit on the supply or export side or are concerned about competition the market place. The Brexit roadshows are the first in a series of events and will be followed a later in the year with workshops to support capability building to help companies strengthen their resilience in the face of Brexit.
