Now that the first stage of negotiations is complete and progress to Brexit is gathering real momentum, Enterprise Ireland is encouraging companies to be pro-active in their preparations and are running a series of Brexit Advisory Clinics to support this.

These clinics are designed to help companies plan and take immediate action to effectively mitigate the risks and avail of the opportunities that Brexit poses, increasing a business’s resilience and making practical business sense, irrespective of Brexit.

Enterprise Ireland is encouraging companies to develop their capabilities in 3 specific operational areas:

Financial and Currency Management

Managing a volatile exchange rate and implementing best practice for financial management for SMEs in uncertain times. Ensuring your business is sufficiently protected with insights into the actions you can take.

Strategic Sourcing

What if your key suppliers are not able to supply at current volumes required, increase their costs by 20-30% due to new excise duties or even go out of business tomorrow? Understanding your sourcing arrangements to reduce costs, increase efficiency and identify alternative suppliers with better supplier management.

Customs, Transport and Logistics

Implementing more efficient transport and logistics arrangements and preparing for import and export procedures (customs declarations and administration etc.) with the UK if necessary.

Along with a series of seminars, the clinic provides the opportunity to get personalised advice specific to your business through one to one meetings of 40 minutes with independent experts across the 3 business areas. A panel discussion will also take place between SMEs from the region, moderated by Newstalk broadcaster Jonathan Healy.

Demand for seminar registration and one to one meetings will be high and it is important to note that meeting numbers are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
