Milsted Langdon is already on the front foot in helping businesses fearing financial fall out from Britain’s dramatic vote to leave the EU.
Inspire by Wessex Chambers recently hosted a business breakfast at Bradford on Avon’s Cumberwell Golf Park, at which Kevin Butler, Milsted Langdon’s Economic Consultant, helped calm the nerves of anxious local business leaders and entrepreneurs who have been asking ‘What now?’ since 24 June.
Milsted Langdon’s May survey of 250 South West SMEs indicated that most believed Brexit would be detrimental to their interests, with nearly 60 per cent of respondents expressing a preference for Britain to remain in the EU. Kevin also delivered four free ‘EU – In or Out’ seminars on Britain’s during the same month.
The former Head of Audit and Regional Director at the Bank of England shared his 20 years of wisdom and experience with more than a hundred delegates eager to benefit from an economic expert’s view of Brexit’s potential impact on them, their livelihoods and their families.
Kevin’s authoritative and informed analysis of Brexit’s opportunities and threats for the South West was well-received and the brisk Questions and Answers session generated enthusiastic and largely positive discussion about the region’s future outside the EU.
Kevin said: “I am always pleased to offer my views to local individuals and businesses on any subject within my field of expertise.
“It was a genuine pleasure to offer constructive advice and reassurance to many who are in turmoil about what might happen now Britain has voted to leave the EU – and concerned about what the end of free access to the single market could mean.
“I wish to thank our partners, Inspire, for hosting the business breakfast as it provided a great mutual support and networking opportunity, and might have forged business links that will help the local post-Brexit economy.”
