Brexit - Britain’s break from the EU

In June 2016 the UK voted to leave the European Union. For Government, organisations, communities and individuals the world of VUCA (Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) became a pressing reality.

Eight months on, the mist has yet to lift fully on the UK’s future relationship with the EU. John Ludlow Managing Director of Leading in Risk will help delegates explore and discuss the risks and opportunities that could come because of Britain’s withdrawal from the EU and how to take a leadership role in embracing the changes ahead.

This session will allow delegates to:

  • Help their organisations embrace this time of uncertainty.
  • Consider the opportunity for risk leaders to become more strategic.
  • Explore how the situation is likely to impact businesses differently.
  • What businesses can do to prepare for an uncertain future.
