Political uncertainty and risk in the United Kingdom is at its highest level, right now, for many years.
For the first time in modern UK political history, five parties (six in Scotland) are polling more than 5% of the national vote. And we face the unprecedented prospect of a second consecutive UK ‘hung parliament’.
In this highly uncertain political moment, many corporate decision-makers (whether public/corporate affairs specialists, strategists, or C-Suite executives etc) are looking for the right ‘toolkit’ to plan ahead to mitigate risk and seize any potential opportunity on the horizon in the pre and post-General Election landscape.
The seminar will showcase new insights and focus not just on the domestic political context, but also look internationally, including to the prospects of the United Kingdom remaining in the European Union in any ‘in-out’ referendum in coming years.
A distinguished panel will include ex- Coalition Government Minister Jeremy Browne MP and former Global Corporate Affairs Director at Diageo Ian Wright. It will look at best practice in corporate political risk and opportunity planning, and what key elements of this toolkit should include, from foresight and scenario planning, to political risk and opportunity assessment/evaluation tools.
Held on March 11th, shortly before the dissolution of the UK Parliament, the seminar will be hosted at ReputationInc’s offices at 83 Pall Mall and include refreshments.
- Jeremy Browne MP – former Minister of State at the FCO and Home Office and ex-ReputationInc
- Simon Lewis – Chief Executive of the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME)
- Ian Wright – former Global Corporate Affairs Director at Diageo
- Andrew Hammond – Former special adviser in the UK Government and Associate at London School of Economics
