Businesses are 'sleepwalking' into disaster as Brexit approaches
Businesses are 'sleepwalking' into disaster as Brexit approaches. That's according to new data from the Cranfield School of Management and the British Standards Institution - that safeguards standards in business. They also found less than one-third of CEOs were confident of leading their firms to long term success. The report argues companies aren't taking enough risks because of 'rigid' ways of thinking. James Brydges spoke to Howard Kerr, CEO of the British Standards Institution.
