Business Breakfast on the UK Political Landscape #2

Business Breakfast on the UK Political Landscape #2

12 March, 8:00am - 10:00am

Danske Bank, 75 King William Street, London EC4N 7BE

Welcome to a Business Breakfast where the UK Political Landscape will be discussed

As the UK gears up towards a General Election, this Business Breakfast series will be an opportunity for specialists to share their insights and consider the different scenarios likely. And a wider roundtable discussion to reflect on the impact those scenarios could have for businesses investing and operating within the UK market.

Let’s cut through the speculation and try and get our minds into the heads of the electorate as the political parties ramp up their ‘sales’ pitch!
