The potential impact of Brexit on Jersey businesses will be discussed at a networking lunch today.

A guest speaker from the Institute of Directors (IoD) will address local business leaders to talk about trade opportunities and other key issues.

Dubbed 'Miss Brexit', Allie Renison is the Head of Europe and Trade Policy at the IoD, and is closely engaged with all parts of the UK government in mapping out Brexit priorities.

She will be able to shed a light on how talks are going, as well as what the IoD is doing to influence and plan for the UK's exit from the EU.

Brexit is pertinent to all businesses here in Jersey and will undoubtedly have an impact on how we do business and who we do business with, offering some challenges but also presenting real opportunities.

It is a hugely complex and evolving issue, and with that in mind I'm delighted to welcome someone of Allie's calibre to give her thoughts and insights on the subject.

– Chris Clark, Chairman of the Institute of Directors Jersey

The event will be held at the Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa.
