Keynote in London

Alexander Betts

Oxford University

Coinciding with Brexit contingency planning in March 2018 for most UK, European and global organisation’s, instead of simply asking why it happened, or depicting doomsday scenarios of the future, UNLEASH will ask: what opportunities does Brexit offer for business? How will the resulting policy decisions taken by government on mobility and trade, societal changes, and economic adjustments redefine the opportunity structures for business? What needs to be done in terms of innovation, technology and leadership to grasp those opportunities?

Alexander Betts is a WEF Young Global Leader named to the Thinkers50 2017 Radar list of “People Most Likely to Shape the Future”. He will walk us through why Brexit happened and what comes next for enterprise organisations and their employees. Join us to hear a new vision of the positive effects of globalization and the steps leaders should take while stepping into the post-Brexit era.

“The biggest challenge we face in Europe is how to reconcile globalisation with democracy.”
