LEADING figures from the worlds of business, finance, law and economics will gather to assess the impact of the 2019 Autumn Budget at a special event hosted by The Herald.

With uncertainty continuing to surround Brexit, and no guarantee the UK will leave the EU on October 31, the date for the Budget has still to be set.

However, The Herald has pulled together a panel of experts ready to give their verdict on the big fiscal moves at a breakfast event the morning after.

The Herald Budget Briefing is supported by Brown Shipley, Campbell Dallas and Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP, and will take place in Glasgow. Delegates will hear from panel members Liz Cameron, chief executive of Scottish Chambers of Commerce, Fraser Campbell, partner at Campbell Dallas, Roger Clark, head of wealth management at Brown Shipley, Grant Johnston, partner and head of wealth planning at Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP, and economist Jeremy Peat, visiting professor at the University of Strathclyde.

Mr Clark said: “As a nation, we’re experiencing a time of significant change with Boris Johnson appointed as our new Prime Minister and the increasing possibility of Brexit without a deal in the Autumn.

I look forward to participating in The Herald’s Budget Briefing Breakfast to discuss these and other hot topics.”

Mr Johnston said: “The Budget Briefing is a fantastic opportunity to hear from industry experts. Given all that’s going on with Brexit, you could argue there’s never been a more important budget.”

Mr Campbell added: “The Budget Briefing is a key event in the diary for business leaders to discuss the impact of the Budget for the year ahead.

Through panel discussions, Q&A and time to network, business leaders can gain insight and knowledge from fellow professionals on what the Budget means for business.’
