Brexit: Impact and future for the hospitality industry.

With Brexit looming, we can expect a lot of changes to impact the hospitality industry, especially the already challenging employment issue of recruiting and retaining staff. Join expert speakers as we provide a sector update, with insights and advice in how best to tackle issues post Brexit that specifically relate to the hospitality industry, including mastering your tipping and HR systems.

We’ll be giving exclusive insight from expert speakers on the future of the hospitality industry, how you can reduce your staff turnover and how to prepare and stay compliant for the year ahead. You’ll also have the opportunity to get your questions answered in a Q&A session with our panel, followed by some light networking among hosts and guests.
