On 30 November 2020, ICAEW will release its hotly awaited Business Confidence Monitor™, one of the largest and most comprehensive quarterly reviews of UK business confidence providing a regular snapshot of the economy informed by senior business professionals running all types of businesses across the UK. This, in conjunction with the a summary from the Bank of England and your opportunity to input into local discussions makes this event one not to be missed as we consider the question 'how can the local professional community help SMEs during a challenging H1 of 2021?'


Your attendance at the London & South East Economic Summit, bringing together ICAEW’s nationwide research with expert views from local panellists and speakers is more important than ever before. As we draw towards the end of a year heavily impacted by the COVID pandemic and with less than 30 days until the end of the transition period, business insight has never been so crucial for policy makers, regulators and indeed businesses themselves.


They will start with presentations from both ICAEW and the Bank of England on their views at a national and regional level before breaking into County Panel groups to explore the implications of this at a local level. The overarching objective is to stimulate debate on how best the local economy can weather the storm and emerge stronger, and how the local professional community can work to support this goal over the coming 12 months.


Your input will be sought through participation in the breakout group that you chose when booking. Here panellists will examine either a specific topic or the economic landscape of the locality and the key challenges/opportunities unique to the county utilising key themes including the impact of COVID-19 on the local economy of the county, access to skills and workers, the role of towns and cities, Brexit, local business support and capital investment.


After each speaker, the Chair will pose questions to generate ideas for the future economic prosperity of the locality and take questions from the audience via the chat facility. Each Chair will report back to the main audience once delegates all return from the breakout rooms on the key points which will be carried forward for action by ICAEW's London and South East Regional Strategy Board in conjunction with other local stakeholders.
