On June 23rd 2016, the United Kingdom made the historic and to some, terrifying decision to leave the European Union after 40 years.
The implications and consequences of triggering Article 50 by Prime Minister Theresa May this month affects all aspects of our lives.
We have sent various speakers to address a range of clients looking to discuss the possible impact and change on the political, business, financial, economic, banking, trade, legal and social side of life as we know it over the next few years. The potential repercussions of Brexit affect not just us here in the UK, but Europe and the wider world community too.
A few of the speakers we have sent out to speak about Brexit include Alastair Campbell, who travelled to Ireland to address a conference of business executives from various industries. The interest in what he said at that conference was widely reported on in national newspapers in both Ireland and the UK.
Sir Vince Cable, Former Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills stayed closer to home by addressing the Shared Services at a meeting held at the House of Commons, whilst Economist Vicky Pryce travelled to Jersey and Valencia to address the IoD and petroleum industry respectively.
Political Journalist Andrew Rawnsley spoke in London to a conference of accountants about the impact of Brexit on business in London, and whilst Ed Balls might have skipped across the dance floor on Strictly Come Dancing, he’s still got his feet firmly on the ground when it comes to Brexit and will be addressing a conference for the Food sector in London later this year.
We have speakers with opinions both for and against Brexit, as well as impartial observers who are happy to comment on the individual as well as national impact of Brexit.
