The UK in transition: What does it mean for our business?
18th March 2020
Join us in Newcastle on Wednesday 18th March for an engaging and thought-provoking session centred around the emerging consequences of Brexit, the UK's pending trade deal with Europe and what it all means for business in our region.
Economic experts David Smith (Economics Editor of The Sunday Times) and David Henig (Director of the UK Trade Policy Project and leading expert on the development of UK Trade Policy post Brexit) will join as guest speakers to offer their views on the UK’s position in world trade, the consequences of leaving one of the world’s main trading blocks and the likely shape of the UK’s new trade agreements.
Part of a series of high profile key note speakers, organised by Richard Swart (Honorary Vice President of North East England Chamber of Commerce and global sales director for the Berger Group Europe) and Co-chaired with Colin Hewitt (Partner and Head of Commercial at Ward Hadaway), this event will provide you with an excellent opportunity to hear from highly respected and experienced economic experts who have their finger on the Brexit pulse.
During the session there will be a panel discussion where you can pose your own questions and which we are sure will generate interesting debate among panelists and delegates alike
