The Manchester Metropolitan University has several webinars coming up that may be of interest to GMCC members.

Creating new products: A bitesize session to explore whether you’re ready

Thursday 2 July, 12.30pm – 1pm (Includes a Q&A session with our host, Claire Pattison)

Perhaps you’ve spotted a gap in the beauty market, for example, and want to create a new face cream. Maybe you’re an accountant and have read about a secure IT system to help process customers’ data, and you’d like to use it in your business. It could be that a company website would allow you to expand your wholesale business...

In this interactive session, we’ll explore risk, resilience, and the idea of being ‘ready’ to innovate.

It’s designed to help you consider whether you have the passion, drive and resources to create a new product. And whether you’re ready to take the risks connected to adding a new product/process to your small business.  


SME Briefing: The Brexit Effect on Staff Planning

Thursday 2 July, 3pm – 4pm

We’ll explore the effect Brexit may have on your current staff, and how your business can mitigate against operational or financial difficulties caused by immigration rule changes.

We’ll explain how your ability to recruit non-British nationals from 1 January 2021 will change, and cover what steps you can take now to ensure you don’t hit a recruitment black hole or incur financial penalties.

Speakers: Charlotte Ashton, Employment and Immigration Solicitor at Farleys Solicitors LLP, and Professor Mark Jarvis, former Group CFO at EY and Visiting Professor, Department of Accounting, Finance and Banking at Manchester Met.
