Business Post-Brexit – What Will The Future Look Like For Suffolk?

Join us at our Suffolk Chamber February Networking Lunch which is being held in partnership with Felixstowe Chamber of Trade and Commerce.


With expert knowledge of the manufacturing sector, and Brexit just around the corner, Caroline Gumble, Chief Operating Officer of EEF will be delivering a key note speech to Suffolk firms in February.

Caroline has over a decade of experience in the manufacturing industries and will be providing an insight into the sector, noticeably what the future could hold for firms up and down the country.

With question marks looming over the import and export of goods and the retention of staff following Brexit, now is a good time to get in front of an industry expert prior to the 29 March.

This event is kindly sponsored by CMS Colour Marketing Services.

We are delighted to be joined by our guest speaker Caroline Gumble, Chief Operating Office of EEF, who will be discussing the current challenges and opportunities in the manufacturing industry within Suffolk and how EEF supports this, plus her role within an environment which is often perceived to be male dominated and the challenges that this brings.

Caroline is responsible for the delivery of membership and commercial services in EEF.  She ensures that EEF’s services and information sources reach and support all of their members. She’s also responsible for EEF’s apprentice and technical training, learning and development, as well as a portfolio of open courses and bespoke training programmes.

Prior to joining EEF in 2003, Caroline had an extensive career as a human resources professional in the automotive sector. She also worked for an American international capital goods company gaining valuable business transformation experience.
