On 21st November our newest special interest group, the Young Executives, held a discussion event to tackle the prospects laid out following the UK vote for Brexit.
The aim was to examine what potential impact the move might have on young executives, directors and entrepreneurs in the City of London, and whether they might be looking to work elsewhere in the wake of the public vote. Will funding opportunities vanish or will economic pressures force millennials out of work or into different markets? Will London manage to remain competitive, not just in business, but in retaining and cultivating talented professionals?
The event was kindly held at and sponsored by Norton Rose Fulbright. The keynote address was given by Stephen Parish, Global Chair of Norton Rose Fulbright, who shared his views that having seen several political and economic crises in his time, we will get through the current situation as well.
Other speakers included award winning architectural designer Chun Qing Li, Founder of China Britain International Design Week and director of KREOD Architecture, Li Yu, a senior global product manager and China specialist from HSBC and Alexandra Renison, Head of Trade Policy at the Institute of Directors.
Overall, the tone of the event was one of optimism. We live in a time of economic uncertainty and significant political change but business will prevail. We look forward to more engaging events organised by our Young Executives group in the future.
