Brexit Readiness Conference | Deloitte belgium

Adequately preparing for an imminent Brexit 

Be prepared for all eventual outcomes. As it stands, the United Kingdom will leave the European Union on 30 March 2019. Following the October 18 EU Council Meeting, a hard / no deal Brexit is more likely.

26 November 2018 from 8:30 - 16:00

“The stakes are high; be increasingly prepared for all scenarios, including a so-called ‘hard’ Brexit,” warned the European Commission. On both sides of the Channel, signals have gone out to the business community to make the necessary preparations.

Regardless of how Brexit takes shape, it will certainly have a business impact. Contracts, supply chain, processes, people, logistics, customers, and many other areas will be affected by the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

Deloitte Brexit Readiness Conference

Despite (and because of) the uncertainty, businesses should be taking immediate action to mitigate potential risks and position themselves to take advantage of opportunities.

To help you prepare, you are invited to attend Deloitte’s Brexit Readiness Conference.

By attending this hands-on event, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the current state of play and Brexit related risks and opportunities for your business;
  • Feel more comfortable in drafting a Brexit contingency plan to prevent disruption of your activities; 
  • Have the opportunity to exchange insights and best practices with Deloitte experts and business peers in dealing with Brexit.
