The vote for the UK to leave the EU has ushered in an era of uncertainty. We convened a group of leaders from business, politics and the media, to debate what the likely impact will be in the medium and long term; to provide some clarity around the process; to help you begin to think about how your business will be impacted; and how you can help shape the UK's future relationship with the EU. Take a look at the event highlights here.
