Resetting for the future: A window into the global Brexit conversation.
As the second event in the global series of privately held events, the Financial Times and KPMG International have a limited number of board members and business leaders gathered in Frankfurt, Germany in September 2017.
Discussion at this event will focus on the strategic choices facing corporate decision-makers as they prepare for Brexit and other shifts in the geopolitical landscape. How are German and multi-national businesses planning for a harder shift in the trade dynamics in Europe post Brexit? What should be the main objectives of a UK-EU trade deal? What could a transitional arrangement look like and how will this specifically affect the Frankfurt area dominated by the financial services industry and many other significant industries?
The event is held in German under Chatham House Rules to create an open dialogue in the discussion and open a window into the Brexit conversation. It is moderated by Fred Studemann, FT Comment and Analysis Editor who is highly experienced within both the FT and other large financial publications. Karl Braun, CMO and Member of the Board, at KPMG in Germany will co-host the event and brings interesting business and industry specific perspectives from the Frankfurt region.
This global program is led by Rohitesh Dhawan – Director in KPMG’s Global Brexit Centre of Excellence – and the events in the series will be co-hosted by KPMG’s UK Head of Brexit, Karen Briggs to bring both global, regional and UK perspectives into the discussion. A suite of collaterals including an executive summary report and video assets which will be made available after the event.
