Resetting for the future: A window into the global Brexit conversation.
The fourth and last event in the global Brexit Boardroom series, The Financial Times and KPMG International hold a private editorial event for board members and business leaders - bringing all the insights from the series of global events into this final session.
Discussion at this event is focused on the strategic choices facing corporate decision-makers as they prepare for Brexit and other shifts in the geopolitical landscape. How are businesses planning for harder borders between the UK and EU? What should be the main objectives of a trade deal? What could a transitional arrangement look like? Karen Briggs, Head of Brexit in KPMG in the UK, and Bill Michael, Chairman and Senior Partner Elect in KPMG in the UK, will lift the boardroom conversation by comparing and contrasting how UK CEO's are handling Brexit compared to their global counterparts and resetting for the future of Brexit.
The event is held under Chatham House Rules to create an open dialogue in the discussion and was moderated by FT Whitehall Editor, James Blitz and Lionel Barber, FT editor and international award winning journalist.
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 in October 2017.
