Episode 2

The Brexit survival guide with Nik Haidar

Nik Haidar of Consultancy Four23 takes the Problem Busters through the Brexit issue and explains what it really means to businesses both in the UK and in European nations trading with the UK.

He then outlines a Brexit survival guide for both businesses and indviduals and finally explains how to make the best of this moment of great change and opportunity.

The UK has now officially "Brexited", yet the year of grace that began at the start of 2020 draws to a close on 1 Jan 2021 - this is the date we will really feel Brexit for the first time. What does Brexit mean for your business? How will it affect our lives as the effects of a hard Brexit are felt? And what do businesses need to do to prepare themselves for the years ahead?

Nik covers this and more in a surprisingly positive episode about making the most of a difficult situation (and how we can get through this together).
