Brexit dominates the news agenda and at Cirencester Growth Hub we are supporting local businesses by answering questions and giving them guidance.
At the time of writing, we were heading towards the October 31st deadline, but whatever happens (or doesn’t happen) on that date, there will still be many questions and concerns from businesses of all sectors.
As champions of developing businesses in the Cirencester area, it is also our duty to represent the views of local enterprises. It may be 119 miles from Gloucestershire to the Houses of Parliament, but businesses based here are entitled to a voice.
So to gather the feelings and concerns of business people in the area, we have set up a short survey, which will help inform the message we give to MPs.
We have a Brexit Hub on the Gloucestershire Growth Hub website – www.thegrowthhub.biz – which has helpful links and information. This includes details of international trade events, expert articles, frequently asked questions and a link to the survey.
We have also included a link to the government’s 7-step tool to help businesses get guidance relevant to their particular sector.
Deb Govier, Business Navigator at Cirencester Growth Hub, said: “To find the solutions to businesses’ challenges, we want to hear from business owners. We will use this information to make sure that Gloucestershire’s voice is heard in Westminster, and to make sure that we have the resources to support businesses’ specific needs.”
Cirencester Growth Hub, by the Royal Agricultural University, is part of the Gloucestershire Growth Hub network and supports developing businesses. Events and workshops are staged every month, which are free to Gloucestershire-based businesses. There is also co-working space, available on a pay-as-you-go or membership basis.
