Brexit? What does it mean for your organisation?

Leeds University, Michael Sadler Building Lecture Theatre, Leeds, W Yorkshire, LS2 9JT

Brexit…the ultimate change programme and one which could redefine the British way of life through its impact on a changing economic, political and perhaps, social environment. While the full impact on our lives remains to be understood, APM believes that organisations and businesses can start preparations to exploit the opportunities and potential benefits this change may present, in addition to pro-actively managing the risks we can anticipate, now that Article 50 has been triggered by the British Government.

Join us for this conference; the first in a series of four events, organised by the Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire (Y&NL) branch of the APM. In this Open Forum debate, facilitator Sarah Coleman, a change expert and editor of “Organisational Change Explained” now working at the Cabinet Office, and our expert panellists will draw from their own research, experience and  environments, to discuss their perspective with our audience.

The panel is made up of business, public sector and academic interests in the Y&NL area. These are:

  • Peter Jimack – Dean of Engineering, University of Leeds
  • Annette Barker – Partner at KPMG and leading their Brexit strategy
  • Andrew Kennedy – Head of Strategy, Military Air & Information, BAE Systems
  • JC Townend – MD Consultancy Services – WYG

Further details on the panel members can be accessed on the APM Website event page.

To help us discuss issues that are relevant to you, could you complete the survey when registering for this event.  

Delegates will also be given a copy of APMs briefing paper 'Brexit - The Great British Project?' at the event.

This event is suitable for professionals with any level of experience.     

Previous presentations and webinars can be viewed on the APM Slideshare and YouTube channels.
