• Brachers’ Head of Corporate and Commercial, James Bullock, joins a panel of local experts on Monday 7 December to discuss the economic landscape, opportunities and challenges in Kent.

    The London and South East Economic Summit, hosted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), brings together nationwide research with expert views from local panellists to stimulate topical debate. This year the summit focuses on the impact of the COVID pandemic as well as the imminent end to the post-Brexit transition period and what this means for businesses at a national, regional and local level.

    James joins Jonathan Neame, Chief Executive of Shepherd Neame Ltd and Gavin Clearly, CEO of Locate in Kent, to provide expert insight into the significant challenges and opportunities for the area, including themes such as local business support and capital investment, as well as access to skills and workers and the role of towns and cities.

    A key outcome of discussion between the panel and attendees will be to generate ideas for the future economic prosperity of the counties. Attendees will also have an opportunity to hear from the ICAEW and the Bank of England on the national outlook for business as we head into 2021.

    James, Head of Corporate and Commercial, said: “Given the challenges that this year has posed for businesses, the debate is a welcome opportunity for local professionals to identify how they can help to support and strengthen the local economy over the next six months, and beyond.”

    The Kent and Sussex panel discussion will be chaired by Sam Mason, ICAEW South East President. The event is free to attend but places must be booked in advance on the ICAEW website.
