THE NEW WORLD OF TRUMP AND BREXIT – AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO US ALL?
2016 was undoubtedly a year of dramatic change in direction for the expectations of an enormous number of people. The vote for Brexit in the UK and the election of Donald Trump have repercussions that will continue to reverberate throughout the world for many years to come. The possible scenarios relating to the future of the UK, the European Union and the USA are many and varied. Major impacts relating to Trade and Investment, Security, Immigration, International Travel and Energy Resource Management are but some of the concerns that have come to the fore. Disappointingly – the shrill voices of the media and the pundits frequently leave much to be desired by those who wish to be better informed.
Join us to hear a distinguished panel present their ideas of the “landscape” that they visualize over the next four years, relating to their area of expertise. Each speaker will make 3 to 5 predictions which will be open to challenge, with no holds barred, bu the moderator, the other panelists and the audience. The speakers will vie to win the hearts and minds of the audience based on the strength and persuasiveness of their arguments in support of their predictions.
