This article has been archived for reference, but the event has now taken place

If you are in the audio production world - running a radio station, production company, audio publisher, related radio business – or you’re a freelance audio producer or podcaster, then the effect of Britain leaving the EU on the way you work could be considerable. 

Brexit will affect the operation of businesses across the country – foreign travel, movement of goods, data exchange, intellectual property and of course with change there always comes opportunity. 

AudioUK, funded by the Business Readiness Fund, is offering a free event where experts will be able to explain changes and answer questions, so book your free places now at bookwhen.com/audiotrain

The sessions will equip attendees to plan their business to exit the EU under a No Deal; provide an overview of the broader impact of exiting the EU; highlight new and existing funding for creative projects; provide the opportunity to meet other audio professionals and share information.   There will be experts from all the key areas – law, finance, HR, and the Audio sector.    Attendees will be signposted to other relevant sources of information to help them prepare for a No Deal.

The day is presented by award winning TV and Radio presenter Georgie Frost [right]
