BUSINESS MIGRATION: Global Britain: Opportunities for businesses in the new post-Brexit United Kingdom

Online

With the UK's referendum on leaving the European Union taking place back in 2016, the country has had time to consider what a post-Brexit Britain would look like as well as developing foundations for its new position in the world. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has declared this new identity as 'Global Britain', but what does this look like and what opportunities does this present to business? During this presentation, Daniel will be exploring why Global Britain presents world-class opportunities for international businesses in relation to research & development capabilities, talent, infrastructure access, ease of business and more. He will also explore regional opportunities outside of the usual destination of London, which may still give businesses access to London, Europe's startup capital, as well as unique sector specific excellence with the local ecosystems of the various regions of the UK.
