Warwick Midlands Network present: Globalisation v Localisation
Birmingham

With the recent UK referendum result where the majority of the UK population voted to leave the EU by 52% voting Yes, to 48% voting No, the U.S. election result where Donald Trump has been elected as the new President of one of the world's greatest super-powers, both coupled with the rising tide of anti-establishment and nationalistic parties coming to the fore in the continent of Europe, we ask the question:

Has Globalisation as a universal project began to falter, with National and Local currents rising to fill the void?

We will be welcoming a panel of local industry specialists to discuss, debate and answer the questions that will affect the region.
