June 2018 CPD & Supper Evening with Professor Trevor Williams

The Principal Hotel
Thursday, 07 June 2018
7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
    • Professor Trevor Williams

The Insurance Institute of York is delighted to welcome back Professor Trevor Williams following his successful presentation in 2017 - we'd love you to join us as Trevor shares his candid and insightful views on the UK economy as Brexit looms closer.

Trevor has been the Chief Economist at Lloyds Bank - Commercial Banking for over 15 years; he is a visiting Professor at Derby University, Chairman of the Institute of Economic Affairs Shadow Monetary Policy Committee and a well-known author, lecturer and consultant.

Trevor's presentation was so successful and well-received that we have asked him back to give us a further update, over supper at the Principal Hotel, on Thursday 7th June, 2018.

The return session is arguably even more unmissable as the UK edges closer to Brexit, with Professor Williams's fascinating and intriguing views on what the future may hold certain to keep us on the edge of our seats.

We listened to feedback from last year's event and so this year we are holding the presentation on a Thursday and have pegged ticket prices at the incredible value-for-money price of £10 per head, which includes supper.

We're delighted to invite you to join us for a bite to eat and the opportunity to network and socialise, all in the elegant surroundings of the city's Principal Hotel.

Leaving the EU is the single biggest decision the UK has taken in 50 years. The transition means the UK will face some of its greatest challenges. What will happen to employment, economic growth and the Union? Whatever happens will determine the future for you, your children, grandchildren and the businesses you work in or deal with.

In this environment focusing on your personal finances is a wise move. Economics is about consumption. People either spend money now or they use financial instruments – like bonds, shares and savings accounts – so they can spend later. In uncertain times we seek insurance protection from the financial consequences of damage and legal liability.

Learning objectives:
At the end of this event delegates will be able to identify

  • an analysis of the uncertainty the UK faces as it explores opportunities outside the EU

  • how to consider personal finances in the light of what will happen to employment, economic growth and the EU

  • how economic data can be used by professionals in a meaningful way to better educate their clients

Dress code: Smart casual

All are welcome so please spread the word!
