The speakers brought their personal perspectives and raised awareness of the potential implications of the EU Referendum on the City, addressing some key questions:

  • Will Young executives in the City be looking for new opportunities elsewhere after the EU Referendum?
  • Is the City ready to face the challenges of Brexit and the impact it may have on Millennials?
  • How are the big financial and public institutions and successful entrepreneurs shaping their businesses to keep attracting the best talent?
