Brexit update --The Dis-integration of Global Business?--
Brexit Update: the Political & Business Impact


One vote changed everything.  The U.K.’s decision to leave the EU will have profound global impact on politics, finance and the business climate. Just how will become clearer over the next few months.   Moreover, the Brexit and similar populist movements elsewhere could signal the end of globalization that has driven economic growth for the past two decades.
As the world looks to adjust to this new reality, three D'Amelio Network experts provide a Brexit update with the latest insights that will help audiences plan for the future.


KATTY KAY of BBC News was in London last week covering the vote.  She remains there this week as fallout is assessed.  In her speeches on the Brexit update, Katty offers the latest news on the changing political landscape in the U.K. and Europe and the ripple-effect globally.  Will other EU member nations follow the U.K.’s lead?  What’s the future of the EU – and the populist movement in the U.S. behind Donald Trump?  Katty wrote this piece last week for the BBC - Five Reasons Why Brexit Could Signal Trump Winning the White House.

As the new European Union begins to take shape, GEOFF COLVIN of Fortune will help leaders navigate an even more uncertain future – not just in the U.K. & EU – but to the global business climate as well.  He devoted two of his daily Fortune Power Sheet newsletters to the subject of Brexit update: Brexit-ers Now Face the Consequences  and Post-Brexit.  Colvin speaks daily to top business and political leaders to learn what they are seeing and how they’re reacting.   Those insights on coping with a post-Brexit business climate can help his audiences manage risk, grow business and compete as the very nature of global business climate changes dramatically.

The big story is that nationalist movements are not confined to the U.S. and U.K. – they’re popping up the world over.  Meanwhile, global trade growth has been slowing.  Global trend spotter VIKRAM MANSHARAMANI has focused on the issue of nations turning inward for some time – and he has some good news.  He outlines the global economic and political chaos, outlining the deeper forces – demographic, cultural, and technological – driving the unrest.  Vikram gives audiences the tools to identify both risks and opportunities in a world of dis-integrating business.  And, challenging the pessimism that this story might prompt, Mansharamani concludes by describing a long-run reason for hope: the rise of the global middle class.
