With uncertainty around the UK’s economic recovery, the Chancellor is set to deliver a hotly anticipated Autumn Budget on Wednesday 27th October. After unprecedented levels of fiscal stimulus were required to protect people’s jobs and livelihoods, the announcement is poised to set out the landscape for policy changes to tax and spending.
With speculation fuelling the notion that this will be the biggest tax-raising budget in decades, the Government faces mounting pressure to detail a sustainable and realistic plan to balance the books, whilst prioritising the needs of the British people.
Join us on Tuesday 2nd November between 9.30 - 10.30 am where a panel of experts will deliver a considered response to the Budget announcement whilst dissecting what it means in real terms for UK plc.

• Jimmy McLoughlin OBE, a political commentator, and previous business advisor to Number 10
• Kitty Ussher, Chief Economist, Institute of Directors
• Carl Jackson, CEO, and founder of Quantuma
• Cassandra Stavrou MBE, founder of PROPER Snacks
Our panel will discuss and debate:

• Views on what the road to recovery looks like for the next 12 months
Promising to be an insightful and topical event, we look forward to welcoming you.
