Businesses across Staffordshire are being invited to a free event aimed at reducing the uncertainty that exists over Britain's decision to leave the EU.

Staffordshire University is hosting A 'Taste' of Brexit event on its Stoke-on-Trent campus next Thursday 7th December from 8am – 12 noon commencing with breakfast and including talks and taster sessions.

This includes a keynote session by Staffordshire University law graduate Mark Blackhurst, a collaborator on a newly published book Doing Business After Brexit by Manchester businesswoman Helen Tse MBE.

Mark, whose internet business Digital Next has seen substantial growth over the last seven years, said: "I'm delighted to be coming back to Staffordshire University to talk about the book and how businesses might take advantage of an uncertain situation. What I have learnt from working with Helen, is that our country now has to take advantage of opportunities that are going to present themselves whether they be in technology, people or resource.

"One fundamental factor business people have to be aware of is the importance of online marketing and the Digital world, in which we are already leading against many other world nations."

The event also features a Digital Marketing Taster Session in the University’s Digital Kiln and a presentation on courses which may be of interest to business leaders including the MBA and a new Degree Apprenticeship for Senior Leaders.

Rachel Gowers, Associate Dean in Staffordshire Business School, said: "While 'divorce' negotiations continue to cast uncertainty over the future for British businesses, we are hoping that our event will positively address some areas of concern and give businesses some ideas about how they can develop."

"We are also delighted to be inviting back an inspirational graduate and businessman Mark Blackhurst who is staying around for a panel discussions on the impacts of Brexit. Although places are filling fast, we are still taking bookings on Eventbrite."
