I am concerned about Brexit. Speaking to many of my brilliant clients and candidates so far in 2019 has led to lots of alarm bells ringing about the severity of the situation.
The trade blocks, currency issues, and general unknown are a potential nightmare. However, the time it is taking away from normal business practices, in order to plan and prepare, is causing more issues in the short term for what are essentially pure fantasy scenarios.
My question back on Brexit issues has always been; "Surely the vote for Brexit was long term and not this short term panic rhetoric we keep having shoved down our throats?" The general pragmatic consensus I receive is, "We totally agree".
What concerns me is the scaremongering about something we can cope with. Our trade bodies like the FDA, Business Leaders and Politicians, I believe need to deal with more fact & not speculation - especially with consumers.
The government must communicate all scenarios back to our Corporates. And, if these 3-6 month critical issues, food wastage, labeling issues, trade blocking, 20% more shelving gaps & £4.5bn worth of lost trade in the first 3 months, cannot be overcome...do the people at the top of those businesses really deserve to be there?
