Speakers

Allie Rennison

Allie spent her formative professional years working in the British Parliament as an adviser to a number of MPs and peers in the House of Lords on a range of issues ranging from trade to employment policy. During this time, she cultivated a deep understanding for the political lobbying environment at a time of seismic change and regulatory reform to lobbying statutes.

Later, Allie was head-hunted and brought over to the Institute of Directors to be their new Head of Europe and Trade Policy in order to expand the IoD’s focus to Europe. She is currently building up a network alliance of business organisations across Europe around an SME-friendly EU reform agenda. She spends a significant amount of time in Brussels and Westminster promoting the policy recommendations she has devised in this area, as well as pushing forward amendments to MEPs in the legislative process.

She has also led the most vocal business campaign in the UK in support of TTIP, and regularly does public debates on this and a number of other EU policy issues.
