    Is it right for me?

    The UK's vote to leave the Eurpoean Union on 23 June 2016 is likely to be seen as a landmark in our legal, political, social and commercial relationship with our European partners.  With the signing of Article 50 expected any day now, marking the start of the withdrawal process, the impact of the Brexit vote is already being felt throughout the UK, Europe and the world.  

    With the wealth of articles, news and opinion pieces, there may well be a sense of 'Brexit overload'.  Many senior procurement professionals are sure that there will be impacts on their business as a result of the actual or anticipated changes arising from Bexit - they just don't know what those impacts will be or how to mitigate against them.

    This one-day workshop is structured to help you explore your current and future commercial relationships and understand the different ways they may be impacted by the changes ahead.  In an uncertain legal, commercial and political environment, you will have the tools for assessing areas of potential risk and opportunity created by Brexit.


    What key points will the training cover?

    • Overview of the existing relationship with the European Union
    • Possible changes to key legislation
    • Risks and opportunities of Brexit
    • Potential for impact
    • Mitigation strategies
    Course fee includes:
    • Lunch

    Tiffany Kemp

    Tiffany Kemp encourages business people to use contracting to create more profitable deals and deliver happy customers who will buy again. Her mission is to de-mystify contracts, putting them back in the hands of business rather than being the sole preserve of lawyers. 

    An engineer with a Masters in Business Law, Tiffany founded her commercial contract consultancy, Devant Limited, in 2003 to provide practical and effective commercial contract drafting, review and negotiation support to businesses. Her experience of negotiating many hundreds of successful deals (and some unsuccessful ones!) has provided her with a huge store of anecdotes and case studies that illuminate her speaking and writing, providing valuable ‘hooks’ for delegates and readers to relate complex contractual concepts to their own business experience.


    Tiffany is the author of ‘Deal Makers – how intelligent use of contracts can help you sell more and deliver better’ and ‘Essentials of Contract Drafting’.

    She contributes regularly to IACCM and other industry webinars and publications. She is a contributing editor of the IACCM’s ‘Contract and Commercial Management – an operational guide’ and a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association.
