The GBCC has teamed up with the West Midlands Combined Authority, Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce and the Black Country Chamber of Commerce to scale up existing support for West Midlands businesses to help them prepare for the new post-Brexit trading environment.
Over the coming months we will be providing a range of FREE events, resources and training programmes for businesses based in the West Midlands Combined Authority area to help them navigate this difficult period.
The GBCC has designed a series of Brexit checklists to help businesses prepare for the new trading arrangements with the EU. The purpose of the checklists is to highlight the key areas of Brexit related change that you will need to consider and any actions you need to take to ensure you are ready.

Take part in FULLY FUNDED accredited or high-quality training courses worth over £200+VAT per person.
Between September 2020 and February 2021 the GBCC, CWCC and BCCC are offering a limited number of free places on 24 international trade training courses which can help businesses get ready for the new trading environment in 2021.
There are a limited number of free places available on each course and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like further information on the courses included, or are interested in taking up one of the free places available, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
