In conversation with Shanker Singham, 23 March 4:30 pm

We had the pleasure to host an inspiring discussion with Shanker Singham, Chief Executive Officer of Competere, Chairman of Global Vision and an academic fellow to the IEA, on the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement and its implications.

This was a very insightful and focused presentation and discussion with both Shanker Singham and the Minister Greg Hands who is also the CBCC Patron on the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. We've received some great feedback from the guests who asked many questions during the event. Stay tuned for more webinars and events with interesting personalities in the future!
