Hear the results of the Q3 Sheffield City Region Quarterly Economic Survey – the first business survey since the EU Referendum.
Find out how businesses in the Sheffield City Region have been impacted since the vote to leave the EU – for better or worse.
Business leaders from across the Sheffield City Region will meet to hear the results of the first Quarterly Economic Survey since the EU Referendum vote and debate how they are managing the uncertainty around the general economy.
The results will also show when Sheffield City Region respondents think when Article 50 should be triggered to leave the EU and what they think are the most pressing issues the Government needs to clarify and work on.
There will be plenty of networking opportunities over breakfast with other regional businesses.

Businesses need to be clear about what they want from Brexit and the role of the Chambers and local government is more important than ever to communicate this. The survey results and event discussions will be used by the Sheffield City Region’s four regional Chambers of Commerce and Local Enterprise Partnership to offer the right business support and lobby Whitehall for the right frameworks to be agreed internationally to meet the needs of regional businesses.
