As the UK government moves into a key phase of work on Brexit, ESCP Europe's London Campus has commenced its year long sponsorship of the high impact Brexit Forum linking member organisations of the French Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain.
Campus Dean, Professor Simon Mercado remarks: "through this established mechanism for member engagement, the Chamber is providing our sectors and organisations with great insight and an environment through which we can share intelligence and discuss collective action on this major development. It is absolutely fitting that ESCP Europe, which has had a strong voice on Brexit, associates itself as sponsor with this key CCFGB Forum".
About the Brexit Forum
Taking place in London at the French Chamber of Commerce premises, the discussions provide guidance and best practice advice for Franco-British businesses. To date, meetings have helped participants to assess developments and strategies around this crucial topic and to benefit from legal input. The forum is aimed at Heads of BREXIT Task Forces, Heads of Strategy, Heads of Corporate Affairs in charge of BREXIT and others with associated responsibilities.
In its most recent meeting on 7th February 2018, the Brexit Forum brought together business representatives from the transport, construction, retail and energy industries to look at the question of regulatory alignment post-UK EU membership. Forum Chair Angela Hepworth (Corporate Policy and Regulation Director at EDF Energy) was joined by Professor Simon Mercado (ESCP Europe) and speakers Geoff Skingsley (L'Oréal) and Olivier Morel (Cripps), Vice President of the French Chamber of Great Britain.
Companies attending included:
