Brexit & My Business: "Our experience is of shaken confidence"

Johnsons of Whixley's MD Graham Richardson says the commercial nursery relies on EU agency workers.


Brexit has had a profound influence on the operations of many British businesses, whether they're stockpiling for the apocalypse or preparing to set sail as a buccaneer in free-trading global waters.

As part of a new series, Management Today is speaking to bosses around the country to find out the impact Brexit's had on them so far, and how they’re preparing for the big day - whenever that may be.

The North Yorkshire based firm supplies six million plants and trees annually to organisations including the Olympic and Commonwealth Games, the Department for Transport and the National Trust.
