How farmers will be able to Brexit-proof businesses
THE NFU is all set to delve into what farmers can do to Brexit-proof their businesses and will also look at a host of other crucial topics during our highly-anticipated Brexit Conference.
Held at the Midlands Machinery Show in Newark, and with just months to go before Britain leaves the European Union, the conference will give everyone a chance to scrutinise the situation and work out the way forward.
We will explore all things Brexit, including timescales for change, the transition and new policy timetable – as well as the Agriculture Bill.
The conference, chaired by NFU deputy president, Guy Smith, will also hear from speakers from JVFG Consulting, Stableprice, Barclays Bank, Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).
The NFU’S EU exit and international trade director, Nick von Westenholz, will update members on the latest developments, give an overview of NFU activity and scan the 12 months that will follow as we exit the EU.
Last year, guests looked at how the agri supply chain was being prepared for life outside the EU at our inaugural Brexit Conference, ‘Business after Brexit.’
This year, we are turning things 180 degrees to look at what farmers can do to build Brexit resilience into their business.
So join us on November 21 to investigate the elements of your business that you can take control of and learn practical steps to improve the future of your business in a post-brexit landscape.
The event is free and all members are welcome, but registration is essential.
