Overview

Brexit and other geopolitical shifts are preoccupying corporate minds on global scale. For many multinational businesses, the implications of Brexit are still unclear. Supply chain operations, talent acquisition, data management and other key business functions may all be affected by negotiated outcomes on issues such as trade and citizenship.  

The Financial Times & KPMG International Brexit Boardroom Series is taking place in New York, Frankfurt, Tokyo and London. The objective is to bring business leaders together to discuss the latest developments on Brexit and the wider geopolitical landscape, sharing insights on how to plan for various scenarios.

The implications of Brexit for American businesses with operations in the UK and the rest of Europe are still unclear. What are the prospects for relocation of operations? What should be the main objectives of a new UK-US trade deal? What is expected on tax reform in different regions? These and other questions will be addressed through a variety of keynote insights from speakers and interactive discussion between guests.
