Aug 28, 2019, 02:08 PM
As a no-deal Brexit looms larger and larger on the horizon, we all hold our breaths not knowing just how it will impact our lives.
But for Irish agriculture, so reliant on the UK with 40% of our food exports destined for the UK, how can this vital industry safe-guard itself from the consequences of Brexit?
Thia Hennessy, Dean of CUBS UCC is also a renowned agri-economist and on this episode of Insights, she joins Anthony McDonnell to give her insights into the potential fall-out and knock-on effects from Brexit, and how we're looking to Asia and the Americas for future food markets.
Plus, Thia explains how CUBS is planning for its own future with a new business school in Cork city and how research topics such as sustainability and the environment are, and will continue to be, central to the school's ethos and thinking.

Insights, the CUBS UCC podcast presented by Anthony McDonnell, Professor of Human Resource Management, finds out about the new and ground-breaking research and ideas from CUBS lecturers that are making an impact on society in Ireland and abroad. 
From business to Brexit, management to marketing, the Insights podcast brings you fresh perspectives and different ways of thinking from CUBS UCC.
