Resetting for the future: A window into the global Brexit conversation.
With the third event in the global series, the Financial Times and KPMG International co-host a seminar style event for a selected audience of Japanese CEOs and board members in Tokyo, Japan in October 2017. As well as the two previous events in New York and Frankfurt, respectively, the purpose of these events is together reflections and sentiments from business leaders on the core business impact of Brexit in their region.
Discussion at this event focused on the strategic choices facing corporate decision-makers in Japan as they prepare for Brexit and other shifts in the geopolitical landscape. How are Japanese businesses with operations in the UK planning for Brexit? How could diplomatic relations between the UK and Japan evolve? How is the global trade environment changing? A governance angle will guide the discussion through these and other complex topics.
The event is held in Japanese under Chatham House Rules to create an open dialogue in the discussion and was moderated by FT Tokyo Bureau Chief, Robin Harding who started his career as a financial banker before entering journalism in the Japanese market focusing on economics.
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.
