What’s it all about?
From Brighton with Love is a package of support designed to help businesses through EU transition and give them the confidence to embark on international trade.
It includes a series of expert panel events, Your Questions Answered sessions, and Export Leaders peer network sessions. The programme focuses on topics including exporting and importing, supply chains, employment issues post-Brexit and more.
It is practical support, delivered by people who are already doing it well. You can ask the questions you want and build the resilience you need to grow your business going forward.
This new initiative is led by Brighton Chamber and supported by Brighton & Hove City Council with event partner Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership. Its aim is to provide Brighton area businesses with expertise that will see them through the EU Transition and beyond.
All sessions will be held virtually, are open to all, and are free to attend.
