Gloom, pessimism, trepidation.
That's the unmitigated message from detailed research by consultancy Eden McCallum as Brexit looms over UK business.
The sixth annual Eden McCallum economic outlook survey of 192 senior business leaders finds little to look forward to in 2019 — and you can share the general depression here.
Dena McCallum, co-founder of Eden McCallum, says: "It is a real concern that the mood in the boardroom is as downbeat as our survey suggests."
As well as taking the mood temperature, the firm's report contains revealing data on Brexit expectations, and has interesting cross-reference to similar work — and growing anxiety — in The Netherlands.
