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.
Episode 1 – Framestore & EU Talent
In this episode, we’re asking how UK businesses can continue to employ EU talent. How else are businesses going to remain globally competitive after losing a massive part of their workforce? Journalist Nick Wallis is joined by Sir William Sargent of visual effects company Framestore and immigration lawyer Sacha Schoenfeld. Together, they try to find some answers.
Episode 2 – Dina Foods & Tariffs
In this episode, we’re tackling the T-word. That’s right, tariffs. Will they, won’t they and how can businesses prepare? Journalist Nick Wallis speaks to Wilda Haddad from Dina Foods and Ian Wright of the Food and Drink Federation. Together, they try to find some answers.
Episode 3 – Talking Tables & Labelling
In this episode, we’re trying to get to grips with labelling. There’s no definitive advice online, so what are businesses meant to do? Journalist Nick Wallis speaks to Mark McCormack from party supplies company, Talking Tables, and commercial lawyer Stephen Sidkin. Together, they try to find some answers.
Episode 4 – Threads & Apprenticeships
In this episode – what happens when half your workforce goes back to the EU? Can apprenticeship schemes help pick up the pieces? But what if they’ve not worked for you before? Journalist Nick Wallis speaks to Sital Punja from couture dressmakers, Threads London, and Anna Ambrose from new apprenticeship scheme, London Progression Collaboration.
