Charting a New Course: Navigating Business in a Post Brexit UK

Thursday, September 5, 2019 12:00-1:30 p.m. Parma Payne Goodall Alumni Center 

Lunch and Learn: The development of the "special relationship" between the UK and U.S. has been celebrated over the past two centuries. On our side of the pond, many have wondered how Brexit will affect this relationship and our role in a post-Brexit UK. Join us as Consul General Michael Howells leads a discussion on the new challenges facing our transatlantic alliance in the age of Brexit.
