So here we are a couple of weeks after the UK public decided that we should exit the EU.
While the now famous article 50 has still not been activated and we have political upheaval on an almost unprecedented scale, the ordinary person in the street may be forgiven for thinking that nothing much has changed. A small increase in fuel perhaps and your Euros are a LOT more expensive but other than that not much else so far (Bank of England interest rate cut imminent anyone???).
As an independent training company i.e. not affiliated to any particular company and therefore with no captive audience to provide training, coaching or other services for, we have been looking at how Brexit if/when it happens may affect us. Will companies that outsource T&D or coaching slam the coffers lids down and wait out the forecast storm or will the reverse be true, amid a recognition that the UK workforce now needs up to date skills more than ever to compete effectively?
So far, it has to be said that there does not seem to be a lot of research on the subject but here is an interesting article from the Huffington post:

I've been working in training and development for more than twenty-five years now including twenty-three coaching.
