EU Debate: A brave new world

As you may have heard, the UK has made the historic decision to leave the EU. Although we will not officially leave the EU until two years after we have invoked Article 50, a lot has changed since the result almost a month ago. We have a new Prime Minister, she has formed her new Cabinet, a legion of Labour front benchers have resigned and Jeremy Corbyn faces a leadershipchallenge.

It’s not exactly clear what our relationship with Europe will look like just yet, or how the new political landscape will affect us, but there’s certainly plenty to discuss. Following on from our last EU debate just before the Referendum, we thought you might like to hear the thoughts and opinions from the same speakers, nearly four months on.

The debate will be chaired by Sir Michael Snyder who, apart from being a partner for 42 years and leading the firm for 37 years; first as Managing Partner and from 1990 also as Senior Partner, also served the City of London where he was the Chairman of Policy and Resources, for over five years.

Our four speakers are: Lord Flight, Mark Boleat, Jean-Pierre Larroze and Christian Clingen.

Lord Howard Flight is a Conservative politician and a member of the House of Lords. As well as this he holds various Director and Chairman positions in commercial organisations.

Mark Boleat is Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee at the City of London Corporation, leading on policy issues affecting London as a key international financial centre.

Jean-Pierre Larroze is the Managing Partner of French accountancy firm Aplitec and was instrumental in founding an international association of accountancy firms.

Christian Clingen is a Partner at German accountancy firm WTG.

We had a fantastic response to our first EU debate and anticipate this will be a popular event too. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

If you can’t make it, don’t worry. We will be live streaming the debate and it will also be available on our Youtube channel after the event.

However, we do hope you can join us for what will be a very lively discussion.
