The Chamber’s popular Economy Business Breakfast returns and aims to help you make sense of this swiftly changing economic landscape.

Hear the expert opinions of Scottish and North-east economists to aid your business decisions and planning.

Sir Charlie Mayfield, Chairman of the John Lewis Partnership will give an overview of the opportunities and challenges for businesses in the modern economy.

Carl Paraskevas, the senior Financial Economist for the Bank of Scotland, will be looking at the state of the energy markets. Energy markets have undergone sudden change in recent years. Low cost US crude oil and natural gas have dramatically changed the supply landscape. Equally, future demand is highly uncertain, due to increased use of renewable energy and uncertainty around the consumption in the emerging markets. Come along to discuss these issues and how they are impacting commodity prices today.

Ramsay Jones CBE, the former special adviser to David Cameron on Scotland, will give his own insights into the current state of play in the political arena with a whistle stop tour from Holyrood to Downing Street to the Whitehouse, musing on Brexit, Indyref2, the Trump presidency and the growing turbulence on the global stage from the Kremlin to North Korea.
