The British Chamber’s second annual London visit will give delegates an insight on what preparations are being made ahead of the UK government triggering ‘Article 50’. The two day visit gives participants the opportunity to talk to government officials and London insiders about the future Brexit negotiations and the subsequent implications.

     During the first day of the programme, we will welcome speakers covering the new political appointments in the UK government and the different facets of infrastructure. On the second day, delegates will be able to interact with government officials who will cover topics such as trade, talent management, and the future of London, all within the overall theme of making Brexit work.

     Participating in our London Delegation means you are able to represent your organisation and make your case to UK government officials explaining the impact of the negotiations on your business.

The UK as an International Trade Hub

Looking to form its own trade network post Brexit, we discuss how the UK will build itself as a trading platform fit for global purpose with its new Department of International Trade under Secretary of State Dr Liam Fox MP.  The Prime Minister called for the UK to become “the global leader in free trade.” In this session, we will explore the challenges and opportunities relating to this


Lunch in House of Commons with Graham Brady MP

Graham Brady is Chair of the 1922 Committee, a committee comprised of Conservative backbenchers that recently oversaw the Conservative leadership election which resulted in Theresa May’s appointment as Prime Minister. He is a prolific backbencher known as a former Shadow Minister for Europe and a leading Brexiteer in the Conservative Party. Graham was voted the Backbencher of the Year by The Spectator in 2010 and has been an MP for Sale and Altrincham West since 1997.


Panel debate on UK infrastructure

It is clear that UK infrastructure – whether it be transport, energy or broadband related – will be critical to ensuring the country’s economy can maintain competitiveness post-Brexit. Members will get the opportunity to present the challenges they face to senior policy makers ahead of Article 50 being triggered. Panellists will cover the responsibilities facing the negotiators and what’s at risk for all the groups involved.


The Future of London as a Global Financial Hub

London overwhelmingly voted to remain in the European Union against the wishes of the rest of the UK. And much of London’s economic success has been based on the financial markets and trade opportunities it has been able to access as a result of the Single Market. Panellists will discuss the future of London as a global city in terms of competition and influence.


Post-referendum Impact: Making Brexit Work

Despite the referendum result, the shape of Brexit still remains very unclear and the Government will have to make a series of decisions in the coming months which will have a long term impact on business. As the debate around hard versus soft Brexit continues, this session will look in detail at some of the decisions that will need to be made and the consequences of these for the country’s future relationship with the EU.


Securing Talent for UK

Panellists will discuss one of the core issues facing businesses globally; talent management. Members will have the opportunity to present the impact the negotiations have on their ability to secure talent. We look at innovative solutions and resource efficiency, and how to best ensure a competitive edge.
