Humber LEP launches workshops to help SMEs plan for Brexit

The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership is rolling out interventions to help SMEs get to grips with  issues surrounding Brexit.

The LEP’s Growth Hub Business Advisor team will be offering ‘1-2-1 clinic’ appointments to advise and signpost businesses toward the range of advisory support that is available from government departments and local and national business organisations. A dedicated webpage to link businesses with the variety of advisory sources available can be found on the Growth Hub website at hub.humberlep.org/brexit. In addition, through the Growth Hub’s new #GrowMySME Programme, the team is running a number of business support workshops and masterclasses covering a number of topics, including business planning, risk mitigation, sales & pricing masterclasses and workforce planning.

Kishor Tailor, Chief Executive of the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “With the economic turbulence that Brexit may generate for businesses, it is more important than ever for businesses to ensure that they are at the top of their game in all areas of their business operations and participate in these free workshops and take advantage of the service bring provided by the LEP and its Growth Hub.”

The LEP is also gathering local intelligence and an online survey has been launched, which can be found on the Growth Hub website here: hub.humberlep.org/brexit-survey. Businesses can complete this survey to raise any issues or problems they are currently facing – or anticipate facing – due to the U.K’s exit from the EU. These survey responses are also being shared with the Government Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy in order to inform them of the issues SMEs in the Humber region are coming up against.
