IoD South Online - Post Brexit and Covid - What do businesses need for future trade?

19 Jan 2022
Online webinar, Online
IoD Sussex and our colleagues across IOD South have a membership of Directors who are involved in diverse sectors with vast experience. We are delighted to announce the latest meeting of the Trade Special Interest Group on 19th January that will enable Directors to connect, share, and exchange peer-to-peer learning and good practices. For example, how are you gearing up for the challenges and opportunities that 2022 brings? This SIG is part of my Ambassador role for Governance, Policy and Trade, and your thoughts will be raised directly with government through our Policy team. 
We continue to encourage regular communication within the IoD South network to hear from and listen to Directors and to develop possible solutions to the challenges that have arisen. 
Many of you join the IoD to engage in a community of like minds but different experiences. You are all managing unprecedented change and we have received feedback that fellow Directors want to both listen to and share experiences of managing change and overcoming barriers. This is a unique opportunity to share ideas with peers in an informal way. 

Join us at 12:30 pm on 19th January for this opportunity to engage and connect with fellow Directors and members.

Please book on and secure the date in your diary. You will be sent a TEAMS meeting invite before the event.
