At BSRIA’s flagship event: the annual Briefing and lunch – industry’s current hottest topics – key aspects of Brexit and all that it entails – and performance and wellbeing beyond compliance – will be discussed.
The guest speaker, the Rt Hon Lord (Paddy) Ashdown GCMG CH KBE PC will tackle Brexit and what this means to the country.
The Briefing will be held at the Brewery, in London, on Friday 11th November 2016. The main sponsor is Trend.
Julia Evans, Chief Executive, BSRIA said: “We are delighted that Lord Ashdown has agreed to be BSRIA’s guest speaker at this prestigious event. He is an excellent speaker – with lots to say on Brexit and other current topics – so our members and audience will be able to put their burning questions to him.
BSRIA has been holding workshops and briefings which will define the messages we want to put to government as part of the impending negotiation with the EU. This list of ‘asks’ will be formulated during the winter of 2016 and will reflect the themes raised by members. Indeed, since summer there has been a ‘labyrinth’ of economic and legislative issues to negotiate.
Wellbeing will also be discussed in detail with our exciting line up of speakers looking at the ideas and concepts both new and currently being used in our industry and also what we can learn from other industries to enable people to be comfortable and productive in their day to day endeavours.”
The Briefing takes the form of a morning briefing followed by a luncheon with a guest speaker. It is well-established in the industry calendar drawing a wide range of attendees from all sectors, commencing at 9.00 am.
