Irish companies must prepare for a hard Brexit – Enterprise Ireland

Much of the debate about Brexit has been on the theoretical side with, as BBB has pointed out continually, little on the practical.  Now Enterprise Ireland has launched a very practical online scorecard www.prepareforbrexit.ie .  With a warning that Irish companies should prepare for a hard Brexit the SME organisation is providing a new interactive online platform which can be used by all Irish companies to self-assess their exposure to Brexit under six business pillars. They are Business Strategy, Operations, Innovation, Sales and Marketing, Finance and People Management. The tool is a starting point for SME management teams looking to develop an action plan to help mitigate risks and leverage opportunities which may arise from Brexit. Based on answers supplied by the user, the Scorecard generates an immediate report which contains suggested actions and resources, and information on events for companies to attend, to prepare for Brexit.
