We are delighted that John Wyn-Evans, Head of Investment Strategy at Investec Wealth & Investment and Gráinne Walsh, Director at Stratagem will join us as guest speakers.

At this session, John will give his opinion on the economic landscape and provide clarity on what directors should be looking at next. As we turn to the latter half of 2023, John will reflect on how we can expect the year to end in terms of the markets and what factors will have the biggest impact. 

Gráinne Walsh, Director at Stratagem will provide an update on the Windsor Framework and what it means for Northern Ireland business leaders. 

Spaces at this event are limited so please book now to avoid disappointment.
