Webinar: 20 January 2021, 3pm to 4pm

As UK embarks on new trading relationships with the EU and the rest of the world, it is important that we consider the major questions and the practical challenges that emanate from the new operating environment if business is to continue to survive and thrive – the two essential ingredients of resilience.

In this webinar, organised in partnership with Control Risks, the audience will hear the latest assessment from a leading consultancy and a member of Resilience First, as well as other speakers on topics such as the legal situation for businesses and the security dimension around borders.

With supply chains starting to reactivate after the holidays, the question on exporters/importers' minds is how much bureaucracy flowing from Brexit will interrupt distribution flows. During this session, Alexandra Kellert will examine the early signs and give her assessment of the opportunities and challenges ahead. Associated with distribution is the new regulatory regime that will apply and what this means for businesses, both large and small: Emma Shipp will offer her view on the situation, particularly with regard to data transfer and compliance. The concern for law enforcement is also around data as the UK has lost access to certain EU facilities such as the Schengen Information System: John Vine will consider the prospects for keeping the UK safe without such systems.

We hope you will be able to attend what promises to be a stimulating discussion.
