We would like to invite you to our first event, Trump of Be Trumped: Effects of the Rise of Populism on Business, in collaboration with the USA Society on the 5th December!
Next Monday, we’ll be hosting the evening panel discussion about the state of politics and business after the election of Donald Trump and the UK's dramatic exit of the EU. The future with these two Western powerhouses are hanging on the balance.
