We will start with a brief snap-shot of the current state of the UK economy from Alex Golledge, Deputy Agent at the Bank of England,  followed by an interactive discussion with a panel of experts, who will take your questions and suggest how you can prepare for the medium and long-term results of Brexit.

Guests will leave this event with a renewed understanding of the specific challenges and opportunities presented by Brexit, the latest information and numerous tips for offsetting the risks.

Speakers also include:


  • Terry Clear, Managing Director of Customs Insights Consulting Limited
  • Gary Cobbing, Commercial Director of the Uniserve Group
  • Kevin Shakespeare, Director of the Institute of Export & International Trade
  • Charlotte Horobin, Director at the EEF – The Manufacturing’ organisation
