David Birchall author and partner with Artemis Media UK said: “There is considerable discontent about not knowing what will happen when the UK leaves the EU, but all the naysayers can come up with is the unknown issues that leaving the Single Market will drop into our laps”.
He went on to say: “I have yet to hear someone explain what will happen when Germany has to pick up the UK’s contribution to the Single Market after the UK leaves, and the impact this will have on the Euro, The ECB, the single market and the remaining member states, a number of whom do not have ‘a healthy bank balance’. I may be wrong, but I can’t see the Euro appearing as strong as everyone thinks it is now after the UK leaves. And from the outside, looking in, I don’t see the Euro holding up especially amongst the disquiet already seen from a number of member states. Perhaps the consequences are not so horrible after leaving the Single Market.”
Dr. Liam Fox, the UK’s International Trade Secretary is asking more UK businesses to look at exporting to bolster their income and profits as Brexit draws ever closer. Mr Fox has already said as recent as 5th August that he expects the UK will leave the EU without a deal and that there are potential customers out there looking for the goods and services that UK companies can supply.
Baroness Rhona Fairhead, the UK’s Minister for Trade and Export Promotion, is reported to have told the BBC’s Today Programme that the research carried out shows some interesting conclusions in that, businesses that export are healthier, more profitable, employ more people and as a result are more sustainable. Her message to small family businesses is “Take the plunge! The Government will provide support to you because you are more likely to have a flourishing business that you can pass on.”
Kamal Ahmed the BBC’s Economics Editor reported that we (the UK) are in uncertain times and confirmed that the UK’s exports are at an all time high due to the week pound. Mr Ahmed also reported that UK companies who export, and in particular those exporting outside the EU’s single market are actually finding plenty of willing customers.
David Birchall, who is an exponent of Authority Marketing said: “If you really want to look at exporting or even just consolidating your home trade after Brexit, then it will be essential that you stand out from the crowd. Don’t be fooled into thinking that what is happening to the UK is happening in a vacuum. Companies outside the EU are well aware of what is going on and are watching events closely. They may be looking for new customers, new suppliers of goods and services, or perhaps they are on the lookout for potential partners. Consequently, those who present themselves as being Confident, Authoritative and who demonstrate their Expertise and Leadership in their chosen markets can expect to be the businesses that will have the best opportunities looking for them.”
Birchall finished by saying “All the negativity makes it more important for UK businesses to Stand Up and Stand Out! After All, There Will Be Life after Brexit.”
