Engage: influencing the agenda

Straight talks: Engage

Listen to partner Charles Brasted discuss the Engage element of our toolkit.

Following the EU referendum in the UK, businesses around the world are assessing what impact Brexit could have on their operations and relationships in the UK, the EU, and internationally.

At the moment, there are many unknowns. However, whatever sector or country you operate in, the sooner you are ready to engage with government to shape the impact of Brexit on your business, the greater the opportunities will be.

The following policy engagement steps will help you to optimize the business landscape for your business, your employees and your stakeholders.

  6. Articulate your response
  7. Find allies
  8. Identify targets
  9. Be constructive
  10. Stay ahead
