The European Centre of Technology (ECT) Supports Individuals & Companies Following Brexit Vote

Posted: 27th July 2016

Held at the University of London, the ECT will launch training to aid individuals and businesses looking to react, adapt and seize opportunities in the post-Brexit economy.

Following Britain’s decision in June to leave the European Union, there is no doubt that individuals and businesses must take all possible steps to acclimatise to the new economic environment, and in doing so ensure that they are not thrown off-course by future market uncertainty. The new economic situation will also offer many opportunities for those equipped to identify them. As a leading provider of professional training in the fields of Finance and Management, the European Centre of Technology (ECT) will deliver the crucial knowledge and skills necessary for businesses and individuals to adapt effectively to this new situation, in an upcoming two-day training course.

The course – “The UK’s Exit from the EU: Financial Preparation for Companies” – will run in early September and be held at the University of London. It will equip individuals and SME’s with the knowledge they need to prepare for the impact of Brexit, and the insight to recognise the opportunities it may offer. Large companies will benefit from an informed discussion of potential post-Brexit financial strategies from the ECT’s expert Lecturer, who has been selected due to his vast experience in the sector.

The ECT also works in collaboration with the United Nations – UNEP, as well as leading universities worldwide, and has 40 years’ experience of education through knowledge-sharing and best practice in the areas of Finance, Management and Engineering.

The 2-day training course is also approved to offer the Exam for the internationally recognised Galileo Master Certificate (GMC) to all participants. The GMC is recognised as a gateway to working in the Financial, Management and Engineering sectors globally, and is used by participants as proof of personal skills and knowledge relevant to the industry. The GMC has been achieved by participants from more than 120 countries worldwide.
