Taking stock of 2016 and identifying the challenges for 2017

Wednesday 30th November, from 17.45
City Hall, London

Speaking on the evening will be:

  • Panellist: Gareth Lloyd-Williams
    Managing Director, Head of Corporate Treasury Solutions, Global Banking, UK, Global Markets Corporate Services, HSBC
  • Panellist: Roy Daintith
    Senior Consultant - Macroeconomics, Kaplan

  • Facilitated by: Andy Perkins

As we approach 2017, we face the imminent prospect of the implementation of Article 50, the German and French elections, and the new US president basking in the honeymoon period of the first 100 days in office. How much political and economic uncertainty do you need to make life interesting?

Formulating economic policy (and by extension, business strategy and policy) in such an environment is challenging to say the least; but assessing the current position of the economy and the likely path in the near future is illustrative and provides a backdrop to the year ahead.

We will discuss:

  • The position of the UK economy and the impact of BREXIT so far
  • The impact of the current economic and political scenarios for our industry and what it means
  • Future proofing yourself in light of the current state of the economic and political climate
  • How can we prepare and predict for the next 12 months
  • Challenges, pitfalls and opportunities to consider in 2017
