Labour Member of the House of Lords, Lord Andrew Adonis has kindly invited Young Professionals for a discussion on Brexit and the future of the UK with focus on the ongoing relationship with member countries of the EU. This is a truly unique opportunity for you to express your views and ask questions to one who has real impact.

Lord Adonis is a Labour peer and formerly Transport Minister, Education Minister and Head of No 10 Policy Unit under Tony Blair. 

He began his career as an academic at Oxford University, before becoming a journalist at the Financial Times and later The Observer. Lord Adonis was appointed by Prime Minister Tony Blair to be an advisor at the Number 10 Policy Unit, specialising in constitutional and educational policy, in 1998. He was later promoted to become the Head of the Policy Unit from 2001 until being made a life peer in 2005, when he was appointed to the Government soon after as Minister of State for Education. He remained in that role when Gordon Brown became Prime Minister in 2007, before becoming Minister of State for Transport in 2008. In 2009, he was promoted to the Cabinet as Secretary of State for Transport, a position he held until 2010.

Following the 2016 Brexit referendum, Lord Adonis became a key proponent of a second referendum on British departure from the EU.
