Kent Business School to hold Brexit conference for Kent business leaders

The University of Kent is planning to host a Brexit conference on Friday 12th January, 2018 for local businesses, public sector leaders, MPs and academics. The purpose of this conference is to discuss the challenges and opportunities that will be faced by the region during the Brexit preparations as well as once Britain has left the European Union.

The Kent Business Summit: Shaping Kent’s Future in a Global Economy is being organised by Kent Business School (KBS) with the Federation of Small Businesses and the Institute of Directors and is a great chance for local businesses and individuals to explore the future of the UK during this period of change.

University of Kent Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Karen Cox says, “Bringing businesses, public sector organisations and academia together to share ideas, knowledge and opinions during the Brexit process and beyond will provide us with a great opportunity to prepare for the future. The University of Kent is proud to host such an event.”

The Kent Business Summit will take place at the University of Kent’s new £37m Sibson building and will feature several prominent guest speakers, including David Smith, Director of Economic Development at Kent County Council and Jane Ollis, director of start-up Quvium, and former BBC South East political journalist Louise Stewart. It is the first event as part of the University of Kent’s new pop-up research institute, Project UK, that examines the economic, geo-political and social implications for the UK before and after it leaves the European Union.

This event is being sponsored by Crowe Clark Whitehill.
