The fourth PubAffairs EU Networking Event of the year, entitled "Brexit: Where Next?", was held on Thursday 9th November at The Barley Mow in Westminster, generously supported by The Whitehouse Consultancy and attended by more than 60 public affairs practitioners.
Guest speakers took part in a quick-fire Dragons Den-style pitching competition to explore what happens next for Britain after Brexit and what the best future scenario for British-European relations could look like. Hugo Dixon, Editor-in-Chief of InFacts, passionately advocated to reverse Brexit. Former MP William Bain, EU and International Policy Adviser at the British Retail Consortium, backed an "EEA minus" deal and, finally, Timothy Stafford, Research Director at the Henry Jackson Society, promoted his global vision to embrace opportunities beyond the EU. Dragons Craig Beaumont, Head of External Affairs UK at the Federation of Small Businesses and Helen Munro, Managing Director at The Whitehouse Consultancy chose Timothy Stafford as the winner for his articulate and insightful arguments.
PubAffairs EU is the network for any UK or Europe-based practitioners working in EU public affairs and engaging with the EU Institutions, as well as anyone with an interest in EU affairs. Future PubAffairs events can be found online here.
