Speakers:
Stuart Bennett: Head of G10 FX Strategy, Santander
Adam Marshall: Director General, British Chamber of Commerce

While Brexit is understandably a huge undertaking, many of the biggest challenges and opportunities facing the UK economy have little or nothing to do with the UK’s departure from the European Union.
 
The best Brexit deal imaginable won’t be worth the paper it’s written on if the fundamentals for growth aren’t right here at home. Competitiveness, productivity, skills, and connectivity – all long-standing challenges for the UK – must be improved to enable businesses to drive our success through Brexit and beyond.
 
The Industrial Strategy White Paper, published by government in late 2017, is a first milestone in a renewed partnership between business and government to deliver growth. But strategy documents mean little without sustained efforts to deliver real-world outcomes that matter.
 
The ‘Imagine there’s no Brexit Breakfast’ will look at the real-world, practical issues that must be addressed for businesses to drive growth. From cost rises, skills development and investment in infrastructure to deliver the connectivity that organisations need; to digital transformation and the revitalisation of energy supplies, it will put the focus back on the business-critical issues which have been lost in the Brexit blur.
 
Speakers will include Dr Adam Marshall, director general of the British Chambers of Commerce. Charged with representing the interests of many thousands of companies, Adam works at the highest levels of business, government and the media to tackle many of the key issues facing firms in Britain today. Prior to joining the BCC he helped start up the Centre for Cities, build commercial links between industry and universities; and worked in the broadcast media. He was previously executive director for policy and external affairs at the British Chambers of Commerce prior to his appointment to director general in 2016.

He will be joined by Stuart Bennett, head of G10 FX strategy at Santander.
