The Chamber’s aims to bring members and guest more diverse activities and speakers of interest. Given the shock of last week’s election results, this evening’s presentation is a must for any business person in the UK. By then certain political moves may have occurred and we shall get the up to date scoop from a legal profession with European experience complemented by view of a chief City economist.

BLP will be hosting the Chamber’s evening in their excellent auditorium.

The country could not have created a more complex situation to unravel, the politicians are vying for the lead role while markets are volatile and business is faced with increased uncertainty.

BLP’s lead on Brexit, Chris Bryant, will be giving his view on the UK’s future on the Brexit negotiations – can we achieve it? What is required? What kind of a Brexit might it be?

We shall also be hearing from Philip Shaw, a leading City economist who will consider the implication to the City, to business and international trade.

Please join us for what is a critically important subject to all of us.
