Wise Up Wednesday: Protect Your Business From Brexit Chaos!

Whatever your views on Brexit, last night’s events, the ensuing vote, or votes of no confidence, and the chaos that now engulfs us, they are now irrelevant.

It’s in peoples’ heads and it is potentially going to have a direct and damaging impact on your business. For some of you that might be very soon, but for others that have a reasonable forward order book, it might take time to hit.

The public, investors and businesses here and abroad, are being warned day in and day out of impending economic disaster.

Add all this to the banks lack of confidence in the construction sector and the precarious financial position of many construction companies, and it’s a recipe for disaster.

Some Will Say I’m Scaremongering!

I’m not scaremongering, I’m trying to get you to see what my colleagues and I have seen and continue to see on a daily basis.

And it’s not just me that’s saying that this chaos is bad for business. Balfour Beatty chief executive Leo Quinn is reported to have taken part in a conference call with ministers last night after the Government’s Brexit deal defeat.

According to reports, Sky News said Quinn and bosses from Tesco and Amazon voiced their concerns to a trio of ministers including Chancellor Philip Hammond.

Quin is reported to have asked: “… when we might get back to a normal functioning government.”

“The enemy of business is delay and procrastination, and the construction industry will face large-scale restructuring where it cannot carry the resources it will need over the next 25 years, and capability will have to be let go.”

Now whose scaremongering?

I Don’t Care About Them I Care about You

If you don’t protect yourself from this, the results can be disastrous.

There is only one way to protect yourself and that is to take a good hard look at your business and make sure you put in place the necessary systems and procedures to protect and grow your business despite the chaos.

You must, and I do mean MUST get so good at winning the right kind of work, making money out of that work, and protecting yourselves, that the downturn that’s about to hit becomes irrelevant for you.

It’s a choice you must make because whether you choose;

  • lack of action, or
  • taking the right kind of action

It will make a profound difference to the future of your business.

Your business is going to be under attack this year from the chaos caused by the politicians.
