In November 2021, ICAEW will release its latest Business Confidence Monitor™ report, one of the largest and most comprehensive quarterly reviews of UK business confidence providing a regular snapshot of the economy informed by senior business professionals running all types of businesses across the UK. This, in conjunction with a summary from an external high profile stakeholder and your opportunity to input into local discussions makes this event one not to be missed as we consider the question “How can the local professional community help organisations assess business risks and opportunities in 2022?
Your attendance at the London & South East Economic Summit, bringing together ICAEW’s nationwide research with expert views from local panellists and speakers is more important than ever before. As we approach the end of the year, it is of paramount importance to reflect on how heavily our lives and businesses continue to be impacted by the COVID pandemic whilst also looking ahead to 2022, where we will examine the risks that organisations face as well as the opportunities available. We will start with presentations from the ICAEW and the Bank of England on their views at a national and regional level before breaking into panel groups to explore the implications of this at a local level. The overarching objective is to stimulate debate on how best the local economy can continue to weather the storm and look to emerge stronger, and how the local professional community can work to support this goal over the coming six months. We will also reflect on how businesses have fared since our previous Economic Summit in May 2021.
Your input will be sought through participation in a geographical breakout group of your choosing which you will select when registering. Here panellists will examine the economic landscape of the locality and the key risks /opportunities unique to the county utilising key themes that align with the latest ICAEW Business Confidence Monitor™ research. After each panellist has introduced themselves, the Chair will pose questions to generate ideas for the future economic prosperity of the locality and take questions from the audience via the chat facility.
This event will be recorded and used for post-event content.
