Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Business Clinic in partnership with MoneyCorp on 28th July 2016 to provide local businesses with information about the current foreign exchange environment and how they ...
Exchange rates are affected by a number of things including current affairs, a country’s economic performance, politics and data releases. Since the referendum, the uncertainty surrounding the UK economy has been unsettling leaving many UK exporters and importers in a tough position. The pound has decreased 11% against the Euro and 13% against the dollar since the Brexit vote. While this is making our exports more attractive, our imports are becoming significantly more expensive. With uncertainty being the most certain thing at the moment, Greater Manchester businesses need to protect themselves so that they aren’t seriously affected by the volatility of exchange rates.
Over the next few months there are a number of things that could further affect the rate of the pound, these include:
- Further referendum calls from other EU nations
- UK Prime Minister announcement
- US elections in November
- Bank of England interest rate cuts
- UK quantitative easing programme
- Release of consumer confidence figures
Please note that exporters and importers will take priority over non-exporting/importing companies. Registration will be verified in order to ensure a non-sales environment. We will confirm your registration over email.

This time Kev Murray & David Draper from Valtech will demonstrate the Lean UX technique of "Assumption Mapping" with a workshop session that will have you taking a new product idea and exploring it from the perspective of identifying and prioritising assumptions.
Lean UX introduced a technique called Assumption Mapping as an approach to identifying areas of uncertainty and hence drive prototyping. We’ve found that this method can be tailored to provide a framework that brings together stakeholders from all disciplines.
In development of a new product or service, this approach can reduce costly mistakes by enabling prioritisation of a range of activities from data analysis and technical exploration through to user research and prototyping.
In this workshop session you will take a new product idea and explore it from the perspective of identifying and prioritising assumptions. We will also share some examples of where this has driven rapid delivery of MVPs as well as supporting avoidance of costly mistakes.
Please note that this event will be an interactive workshop.
