Crucial timing to harness opportunities in the post-Brexit business reality

UK's decision to leave the European Union took many by surprise and signaled the beginning of dynamic changes in the business world. It impacts not only the UK and the European Union, but the global economy in general, as it raises new challenges and opportunities for companies, expanding their businesses abroad. Brexit has raised many questions: Will the end of EU tax directives push multinationals out of the UK? Can London keep its status as the #1 Global Financial Centre? How to retain your top management in an age of high talent mobility? How will Brexit impact the investment strategy for Sovereign Wealth Funds? How can some of the EU states benefits from deals with UK? and, most importantly, Where will you take your business next? The Brexit & Global Expansion Summit will explore all of these questions and give you access to valuable market intelligence in times when being well-informed is more important than ever.
