  • Overview

    Business leaders are overwhelmingly optimistic about Britain's prospects outside of the EU and many are also confident about the year ahead, a new survey revealed.

    Conducted by Tunbridge Wells-based law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore on October 20, the anonymous poll of 60 regional businesses took place at a Brexit forum hosted at Tonbridge School. Speakers at the event included local Conservative MP Tom Tugendhat, Dominic Deeson of the Institute of Directors and John Elliot of Millwood Designer Homes - a longstanding client of the firm.

    Sentiment among those attending was that Brexit 'must mean Brexit' and that its also presented an opportunity for Britain.

    This was reflects by the survey, which revealed 77 per cent feel confident about the economy in the next 12 months, while 84 per cent believe Britain will thrive outside the EU.

    However, almost three quarters of those polled said they preferred a 'soft Brexit' - meaning continued access to the single market - over a 'hard' break, although 70 per cent did say striking free trade deals with other countries was a benefit of this option.

    Commenting on the results, Thomson Snell & Passmore CEO said: "This was an interesting and thoroughly informative forum on the impact of the enormous economic and political event. It was great to be able to collate the views of the business leaders of the south-east region, which is uniquely place to understand the challenges and opportunities that Brexit brings."

    First publiished in the Times of Tunbridge Wells Newspaper on 2 November 2016.
