Our research has shown that more than 70% of small to medium sized businesses in the UK have no plan for Brexit at all. Some will wait and see what the changes bring.
This could mean that the businesses face unanticipated changes at short notice. We have proven experience working with SMEs to prevent this situation.

These are turbulent times. Just when it appeared that the UK’s withdrawal from the EU had been injected with direction after years of uncertainty, humanity found itself contending with the SARS COV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic. Now, as the UK government begins to ease the lockdown imposed in response to this public health crisis and reopen the economy, many economists believe a global economic depression looms. In order to thrive once again, businesses must carefully rethink every aspect of their operations and now is the time for them to do it.
Some businesses have already been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. To successfully manage their way through this public health crisis all businesses should create a business continuity plan to protect the health of their business, their employees and their customers.
Our experts have studied how businesses in countries where COVID-19 hit first, responded to the challenge of rebuilding. We are ready to share these learnings with businesses in the UK, EU and further afield.
Let our business resilience experts help you navigate simultaneously through two of the biggest uncertainties that the UK has ever had to face: Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic.

WorldFirst had the pleasure of hosting BrexitHelp at our London HQ for a free workshop offering SMEs training in how to successfully plan for the impact Brexit could have. Despite various Brexit developments during the planning of the workshops, BrexitHelp produced a well-organised and engaging workshop featuring key speakers such as our Chief Economist. The BrexitHelp team proactively supported our Social Media Manager in the promotion of the event across our channels, providing branded materials and suggested copy for tailoring. Overall, it was deemed to be a successful day!
Thank you very much to the London Growth Hub and Sietske de Groot for delivering the Brexit Resilience Workshop to the entrepreneurs of the Prince’s Trust Enterprise programme. The workshop was able to exaggerate the need for SME’s to continuously monitor the progress of Brexit talks using certain resources available in order to best prepare for possible impacts. It also highlighted key talking points for both product based and service based businesses, which proved valuable. There are clearly still masses of questions to be answered but this workshop is very important for keeping enterprises engaged and informed.
I run the Start-ups in London Libraries program for the London Borough of Waltham Forest. We work with the British Library and nine other London boroughs to deliver ERDF-funded workshops to pre-start-ups and early stage entrepreneurs, in the space of our lovely local libraries. It is important that we consistently seek out service providers who can inform our customers about external factors that may impact their business. Naturally Brexit was a key concern for many of our stakeholders, so we were thrilled to be able to welcome Chris and Sietske from Brexit Help during one of our core workshops. The information they presented was insightful for the 30+ participants – feedback was that it helped them to think about Brexit in a different way, to evaluate how their business might be at risk, to be aware of the Brexit support resources available to them, and to be more at ease with the ambiguity of the situation. We were grateful for the content provided, and for Chris and Sietske’s enthusiasm in sharing their knowledge.
The Brexit Help team delivered a How to prepare for Brexit workshop, for Wandsworth Council in July 2019.
The session was well attended and really well received. Guido – the presenter – was great and incredibly knowledgeable.
He pitched his talk perfectly and was extremely generous with his time – staying for ages afterwards to talk to business owners about their concerns. The feedback after the event was really positive. It was a pleasure working with Chris and his team, who I cannot recommend highly enough.
In late November, we ran a session in tandem with the London Growth Hub and Brexithelp.net. It was an insightful and engaging session, presented by Sietske de Groot. Despite the uncertainty surrounding this situation and defining what Brexit means, Sietske gave great clarity to businesses in how to prepare, taking the time to go into the detail and even support specific sector focused questions. Those in attendance found the session useful, with some practical takeaways in preparation for Brexit. The team did well to avoid bias and look at the opportunities to support small businesses and start ups. Chris was great at supporting the session, getting everything organised and set up!
Sietske’s presentation was really good, very informative which the other attendees really enjoyed and found very useful. She explained the different sections really clearly and put simply which made it easier for the audience to understand. The attendees all gave great feedback on the day and some of them emailed us after saying that it was a great event and the topic was very interesting and helpful. Some also advised us that they’d visited the websites provided to have a read through in their own time which shows the presentation must have stuck with them. Sietske’s presentation was also very helpful for us in the branch as we are also able to better understand the issues our clients may be facing, which helps us to speak to them about how we can try help too.
Attendees at the Waltham Forest workshop came from a broad spectrum of sectors, sizes and stages and it was amazing to see everyone gain so much from their participation. The depth and breadth of material shared was spot on and we all came away feeling better informed and prepared, thanks to the engaging and open tone struck by the presenter. The team at BrexitHelp.net were a pleasure to work with throughout and their professionalism ensured smooth organisation throughout.
We worked with Chris on delivery of a Brexit preparedness session for London based businesses. Chris and his colleagues, Sietske de Groot and Guido Reinke, were able to engage the delegates with their knowledgeable and clear delivery style. Their guidance on a topic on which there is a great deal of uncertainty but still much that can be done to prepare was perfect. Reassuring, practical and good honoured.
I cannot thank BrexitHelp enough for their detailed and tailored expertise throughout all of their workshops in Camden, and indeed across London. The SMEs have felt supported, had their questions and concerns answered, and been given important advice to help future proof their businesses. It’s almost unprecedented to have so much change within one year – a global pandemic (COVID-19), early elections and EU negotiation push backs – but BrexitHelp have always upheld a united and informative front, which has been up-to-date and accessible for all. Thank you.
In February and May 2019, London Growth Hub visited PBC providing small and medium-sized businesses with information about Brexit and the changes will impact their activities. Maria Stammers, our Senior Business Advisor, who attended the seminars said ‘The seminar was informative. They gave up-to-date accurate information in a simple to understand format. Good advice for businesses to get ready in advance.’
