Understanding Brexit: Fraser of Allander half day course

This short course will provide participants with a summary of the key issues for the UK and Scotland arising from Brexit and the challenges and opportunities that it will pose.

With a lot of information – some informed, some less so – circulating around about Brexit it can be difficult to make sense of the key issues and what they might mean for businesses, policymakers and individuals.

This half day course will provide an independent summary of the big issues and the arguments on both sides of the debate.

It will also provide an overview of the Brexit process, the key issues to be resolved in the negotiations and important milestones to watch out for in the transition process.

  • Welcome & Introduction (Graeme Roy)
  • An introduction to how we got here and what happens next (David Wilson)
  • The trade impacts of Brexit for business (Ian Wooton)

  • Know of the key issues and milestones to watch for during the transition process;
  • Be aware of the red-lines, key arguments and likely outcomes of the negotiation process;
