You’re invited… Join us quickly after work for a thought-provoking discussion on a major foreign policy topic and how it could influence your business internationally.
This event is part of our small group Business Briefings series which adds a deeper level of discussion to our gatherings. We draw inspiration from articles in well-established publications and build on these by delving deeper into how foreign relations and geopolitical developments could influence our businesses/the global economy.
