PRMIA event – 20st September with guest speakers Jim Power and Kevin McConnell

On Thursday, 20th September, the Irish Chapter of PRMIA held their 1st event after the summer break.

Over 40 people attended the event which was entitled “Countdown to a More Uncertain Brexit”.

Guest speakers Jim Power and Kevin McConnell reflected on the current Brexit talks.

Discussions covered: 

  • What is a “no deal“ Brexit and what are the risks associated with other “agreed” negotiated outcomes?
  • How should institutions prepare for a very uncertain run into March 2019 and its aftermath?
  • How will this uncertainty impact the view on the Irish economy and beyond?

In short, the conclusions are that the BREXIT Talks are going to go to the 11th Hour and the markets have not priced in a “No Deal Scenario”, Ireland is vulnerable no matter what the outcome and finally given how indebted all of the world’s leading economies are, no one is ready for another global shock.

This was followed by a robust Q&A session chaired by PRMIA Ireland Co-Regional Director Alan Bluett.

The event was opened & closed by Monika Smatralova (PRMIA Ireland Regional Director).                                                        

Special thanks to EY & Conor Griffin (Associate Partner EY) for kindly hosting the event.

Representing The Panel at this event were Alan Bluett (Deputy Regional Director PRMIA Ireland).
