“I have been actively selling on Amazon for over five years. Following the Brexit Referendum in 2016, I saw there were potential risks to my business. I immediately embarked upon contingency planning, which included expanding my Amazon consultancy offering. Research into what Brexit potential risks (and opportunities) would bring to business caused me to open a Brexit consultancy and share these learnings with other businesses.”
Sietske de Groot
Sietske de Groot
EU expert, regulatory geek and government specialist
Before setting up her own consultancy TradePeers Ltd, Sietske represented the Federation of Small Businesses at EU level. She has worked on EU legislation and free trade deals throughout her career, and knows what reasonably can and cannot be expect.

“I am a seasoned EU expert and offer trainings, briefings and consultancy to help organisations understand what the UK’s different relationship with the Single Market could mean for their activities in the EU or with the UK. I know Brussels inside out but I am also well-versed in the nitty-gritty of EU trade negotiations because of previous involvement in (what was going to be) the EU-US Free Trade Agreement. With this knowledge and experience I ‘translate’ what is happening at a political level and help businesses and organisations preparing for a new commercial environment, whether they are based inside or outside the UK.”
