Brexit: an industry’s biggest challenge – a spotlight on the construction industry
After a year which has given the construction sector a significant headache, Brexit is likely to throw the sector into further difficulties. We consider the important issues and risks that have the potential to cause major project and material delays with further cost implications. Blake Morgan’s head of construction, Richard Wade and Director of Ardynt Consulting and Chair of the Heathrow Rail Link, Ruth Bagley will discuss dealing with European supply chains, disruption to the supply of labour, as well as changes in product regulations and the associated mountain of paperwork to come.
While the session focuses on the construction sector particularly, the key issues are of concern across a variety of industries and the presentation will be of broad interest. Your questions will be answered live at the end of the presentation.
