2018 will be a very important year for UK business owners as the government negotiate Brexit with the EU. Hopefully Theresa May and the sub committee Brexit team led by David Davis will endeavour to deliver a Brexit plan to mitigate any further risks to the economy. As we head towards the March 2019 deadline and leave the EU single market who knows what might be the outcome?.
If you are unsure of how these events may affect your business and your customers and wish to know how the current climate is affecting the economy, please join us at our breakfast seminar.
Andrew Hebden, Deputy Agent from the Bank of England will share and summarise the key points from the latest BOE's inflation report.
There will be plenty of chances to ask questions and we will encourage "peer to peer" discussion around the table. This is your opportunity to understand regional business owner’s sentiment and the economic outlook across the North West and Cumbria during 2018.
Unfortunatley our event is fully booked. However if you wish to put your name on the reserve list please email email@example.com
Over the last few years UK Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has increased by around 2% per annum. In 2017 GDP growth was a modest 1.7%, the slowest growth since 2012. Growth has been mainly driven by consumer spending, not just on staples such as food and clothes, but cars, holidays, travel and entertainment, eating out, luxury products and general improvements in living standards.
What’s in store for us during 2018? With recent post-christmas announcements from many of the major retail, car, construction and leisure sector organisations. Are we now starting to see the cooling effects of the uncertainty around Brexit? What's the feedback and predictions from our peers on customers and the general public near future buying behaviours?
