Our speakers bringing their personal perspectives and through some life examples will raise awareness of the potential implications of the EU Referendum on the City, addressing some key questions:

  • Will young executives in the City be looking for new opportunities elsewhere after the EU Referendum?
  • Is the City ready to face the challenges of Brexit and the impact it may have on Millennials?
  • How are the big financial and public institutions and successful entrepreneurs shaping their businesses to keep attracting the best talent?
  • Keynote address: Stephen Parish, Global Chair, Norton Rose Fulbright


Our panel of eminent speakers sharing their views includes:

•  Alexandra Renison – IoD Head of Trade Policy. Key activities are devising recommendations and representing the voice of members on EU reform matters and helping to provide the link between business and Government on increasing international trade. She also routinely provides advocacy for the IoD on a range of regulatory issues in Brussels.

Chun Qing Li is an award-winning architectural designer and entrepreneur,  founding director of KREOD Architecture and China Britain International Design Week based in London.
