The confusion surrounding Brexit has only intensified in the years following the Referendum. The range of possible outcomes is wide, the implications of those outcomes unclear and the time available to respond short. Our panellists will discuss how their sectors of the economy are coping with the uncertainty.


  • Where are we now and what does it mean?
  • What impact has the uncertainty had on business?
  • What is the current plan and how might it evolve?
  • What has your firm done to cope with the uncertainty? What more do you need to do?
  • What open questions remain?
