Judgeing Brexit with the Federation of Small Businesses

A morning coffee event  was organised in partnership with  the University of Cambridge is  to be held at the  world famous Judge Business School, Trumpington Street, Cambridge. 

Small business owners will be able to find out what political scientist, Dr David Reiner,  who is a senior lecturer in technology policy at the Judge Business School, believes will be the impact of the decision to leave to European Union on Cambridge’s 5,000 small businesses. 

Alan Todd,  Greater Cambridge’s branch leader said: “ Whichever way our members voted in the referendum, leaving the EU will affect how business is done in the UK. Whilst everything is still up in the air,  our members were  seeking some clarity on the likely impacts of the leave vote an on the economy and it was good to have some expert guidance on how small businesses should react. This networking event gave businesses the opportunity to hear an academic perspective the likely effects that will follow this decision.”
 
He continued: “It was  also great opportunity to see inside the Judge Business School. It is an iconic building  and is a refurbishment and extension of the old Addenbrooke's Hospital which was first established on this site in 1766. The beautifully designed interior of the building keeps this character in a new and innovative way.” 
 
Dr David Reiner said: “I  enjoyed speaking to Cambridge’s small business community about Brexit. The truth is that there have been many confusing messages put out. As a political scientist, I put forward what I believe are the likely outcomes of this decision.”
