DESCRIPTION

If you think independence and another referendum is bad for your business, come to this meeting!

Join owners and managers of businesses including retail, finance, insurance, IT, engineering, automotive, hospitality, construction, agriculture to hear what Scottish business thinks, and what is happening across Scotland.

Brexit, the oil price, tax and business rates contribute towards Scotland's economic uncertainty, but despite severe blows in the Council and General election, the SNP persevere with their efforts to destabilise the UK.

At this short teatime briefing you will be able to:

  • Hear the views of Jack Perry one of Scotland’s foremost, best connected business leaders

  • Meet your peers and hear what they think

  • Learn about Scotland In Union and our role in keeping Scotland in the UK

  • Ask your questions and make your points

Keynote Address "Scottish Business and Independence: Where are we now, what can we do?"

Jack Perry, former Chief Executive of Scottish Enterprise and a member of Scottish Business UK's advisory board, a new anti-independence business group will discuss the current business climate across Scotland, and the impact of external influences such as Brexit, business rates and Scottish taxation. Jack will offer his views on what the business community can and should do to influence events. Afterwards a panel of well known business leaders will join a discussion with the audience.

Jack is chairman of listed investment companies, European Assets Trust and ICG-Longbow Senior Debt. He is also a non-executive director of the Witan Investment Trust plc. He was awarded a CBE in 2010. Jack was a member of the Independent Commission for Competitive and Fair Taxation in Scotland which reported in February 2016.
