What Happens After Brexit?

Posted by Bob on Aug 11, 2016 11:02:28 AM

Many of our partners have talked to us about the possible effects of Brexit.

The day after the vote, which I have to say we all expected to be ‘Remain', there was certainly an air of fear pervading the country.

This lasted about a week, and then we all got on with it. And apart from the pound weakening (strengthening tourism and exports) not a great deal has changed.

A short while after your boss is on your back to “follow up” on the client and “close” down the sale, right?

Well, that’s how it used to work!

Advice for Aspiring Apprentices

After studying at university for 2 months, I was confident in my realisation that this wasn’t for me. Even though I loved the subject, the tutoring was dull and uninspiring, and the city that I was living in was a dystopia that I couldn’t imagine myself living in for 3 years.

I found myself in a similar situation as the British population did before the Brexit vote, choose to stay at university and feel secure but ultimately it might not be best for me, or leave and face a mass of uncertainty. However, I decided to take the plunge and leave university.
