Firms invited to Kent Business School event on international trade post-Brexit

Organisations in Kent are invited to attend an event hosted by the Kent Business School (KBS) to discuss changing trading regulations post-Brexit.

The event, part of the Business Soundbite series of talks run by KBS, will take place on Wednesday 21 March at the Sibson Building on the Canterbury campus from 17.00 – 20.00.

Among those speaking will be the University’s Professor Richard Whitman from the School of Politics and International Relations, discussing the latest developments in the Phase 2 Brexit discussions between the UK government and the EU. Dr Gbenga Oduntan from the Kent Law School will examine some of the possible trading regulation changes in three different Brexit scenarios.

Simon Warne from tax advisory firm Crowe Clark Whitehill LLP will discuss how to best prepare your business for post-Brexit trade while Alvaro Alamillo, Head of International Partnerships, Santander UL will tackle some of the myths surrounding trade outside the EU.

There will also be a panel discussion and audience Q&A followed by drinks, canapés and music, allowing attendees the chance to network.

The event follows on discussions that took place at the recent Kent Business Summit in January that featured input from local businesses, the council and MPs on how the county can best prepare for the future, however discussions around Brexit evolve.

Attendance is free of charge and those interested in coming are asked to register online via Eventbrite. For information about the event, please contact: f.hoette@kent.ac.uk.
