Will There Be Disruption and Chaos in YOUR Team After Brexit?

If you think everything is going to remain calm and settled at work come March 29th and that it's going to be business as usual, then think again. Chaos could be just around the corner.

And it may not just be about stock delays, Euro exchange rates, EU citizen employment rights and so on. You may face stresses, strains and breakdowns in your teams with tensions rising as the impact of Brexit becomes a reality in personal lives.

I'm not over dramatising things. My comments are echoed by what the government is preparing for.
