Herald Budget Briefing Breakfast to tackle top issues for Scots businesses

THE Herald will break down the big business issues at the Budget Briefing Breakfast .

Our group of expert panellists, chaired by political commentator Iain Macwhirter, will provide the analysis.

The Herald Budget Briefing Breakfast event is supported by 200 SVS, Brown Shipley, Campbell Dallas & Wright and Johnston & Mackenzie LLP.

Already confirmed to join the panel are Fraser Campbell, partner and head of family businesses at Campbell Dallas, Grant Johnston, partner and head of wealth planning at Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie LLP, and Roger Clark, head of wealth management at Brown Shipley.

Mr Campbell said that “2020 has started with clearer direction”, adding: “The Budget will give the new majority government their platform to outline what the year ahead looks like with a focus on more than just Brexit, which has dominated the headlines.”

Mr Johnston said: “Given this will be Britain’s first Budget as a non-EU member state in over 40 years, it’s guaranteed to be an interesting one.

“The Budget Briefing will be a fantastic opportunity to network with other business people and to hear from some of Scotland’s leading industry experts.”

Mr Clark said: “With this first Budget for a post-Brexit UK, we await with interest to see what the Chancellor will announce to allow both businesses and families to start planning for the future with more certainty.”

Kim Wilson, managing director of 200 SVS, said: “200 SVS are delighted to once again host The Herald Budget Briefing Breakfast. We look forward to welcoming businesses from a variety of industries for this annual key event.”
