Brexit Ready Podcast

We know that businesses want to hear from other businesses about how they are getting ready for the end of the transition period. So we’re launching a brand new podcast series to do just that – businesses like yours talking about the challenges and opportunities they are facing.

Brexit Ready is a brand new podcast series from the London Business Hub where we’re talking to businesses all over London, finding out about them, and the challenges they face because of Brexit. Whether it’s labelling, exporting or staffing we’ll bring them together with experts to help them find solutions that will help their businesses continue to grow.
