Our approach 

With time running out, uncertainty still surrounds the details of UK’s exit from the EU, as businesses in every sector try to prepare for Brexit. Questions still remain as to what the real-term economic impact will be on your industry and day-to-day business operations.

A constant stream of vague political rhetoric has also offered little reassurance to UK businesses as they begin their preparations.

Robust Brexit Contingency Planning for Business                           

We assess how outcomes of the Brexit process will impact your industry sector and business, to help you identify and manage any resulting business risks 

How we do it 

At Shaping Business, we have developed an efficient process using an industry-recognised risk management framework to identify and assess the risks associated with Brexit to your business, even in a worst-case leave scenario of “no-deal”. This framework can be applied to companies in the engineering, manufacturing, technology, IT and professional services sector. 

Through our Brexit Planning service, we will work with your team to establish an understanding of the challenges that Brexit brings to your business. 

From here, we will discuss and agree on a specific Brexit scenario that the risk assessment will be framed around. We will undertake a comprehensive risk assessment to determine the likelihood and impact of key risks on your business.

This will encompass all areas of the business, from sales, right through to supply-chain and resourcing. We will work together to determine how each risk can be managed within your business and identify the action plans that need to be implemented.

This Brexit planning risk management is typically delivered in five consulting days over a two-week period, so businesses can get peace of mind for a relatively small investment.

We have already successfully delivered Brexit planning services to clients in the UK and the EU, helping them understand the actions they need to take to fully prepare for Brexit.
