As the UK heads towards the possibility of leaving the EU without a deal, it can be difficult for businesses to know where to go for guidance.  Amidst all the political noise and confusion, the IoD is here to give business leaders the information they need to help them prepare and plan.  A no-deal doesn’t have to mean no idea.
