We would like to invite you to a special online edition of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday 25th June 2020 at 16.00. This is your chance to take part in important discussions and decisions on the Chamber’s future, ask questions and put across your views.
Immediately following the AGM, BCCI President Tom Noad will host a ‘Never Waste a Good Crisis’ webchat focussed on the final throes of Brexit, the challenges of Covid and the opportunity for all of us to take responsibility for a clean, green recovery.
Tom will be joined by special guest Dr. Adam Marshall (Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce) for a discussion on the future of trade between the UK and Italy in light of the rapidly approaching end of the transition period as well as by Eliot Whittington (Director of Policy & Director of The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group), for a discussion on the opportunities which the COVID-19 crisis will present to rebuild world economies on more sustainable models.
The webchat is expected to last until 18.00.
