The Irish Times explains: How you can get in shape for a no-sweat Brexit

It would be far fetched to claim that Brexit is ‘no-sweat’, especially if you are new to trade and customs procedures and their implications – not to mention the many added costs associated with tariffs, paperwork, planning and transport. Nevertheless, some preparation can go a long way. Training and awareness of what is required is essential; and I am incredibly proud of the very positive feedback from the Irish SME business community about the training that we delivered in partnership with KGH for Enterprise Ireland and Ireland’s Local Enterprise Offices. Some of the advice provided in those workshops has been prominently featured in the Irish Times article. You can find it here.
