Tax reform from across the globe: what lessons can the UK learn?

From the US to Australia, radical tax reform is bearing fruit. Join us for a panel discussion on how we can embrace it in the UK.


From the US to Australia, radical tax reform is bearing fruit. But the UK has largely swerved such a conversation in recent years. The panel will explore how to apply the pro-growth changes to the UK tax system which have worked abroad in recent years.

Trade After Brexit: Will freer markets enrich us?

As the UK leaves the EU, what is the future of free trade? Who gains the most from free trade, and who stands to lose out?


The future of Britain’s trading relationships post-Brexit is still up in the air. Business are at odds with each other, some making the case for close regulatory alignment with the European Union, others calling for Britain to diverge from EU regulations and carve out its own place on the global stage. Will more freedom and trade improve the well-being of all parties? Who gains most from free trade, and who stands to lose out?

Free Trade in a Global Britain

An expert panel discussion on the opportunities, benefits, and challenges of free trade arrangements in a post-Brexit Britain.


The UK is on the brink of gaining control of its trade policy. In order to capitalise on the opportunities of Brexit, the UK must be outward looking and embrace free trade with the rest of the world, especially countries with which we have a longstanding relationship. This panel will discuss the ways in which we can revitalise UK industry through global free trade, the benefits of creating relationships with the rest of the world, and how global trade can deliver the best outcomes for the UK.
