EU referendum: Event for Kent businesses at Bridgewood Manor Hotel, Chatham

The potential impact of Brexit on businesses in Kent will be put under the microscope at a debate ahead of the referendum.

Phil Eckersley, the Bank of England agent for the South East, will give insight on the economy at the event organised by accountancy Kreston Reeves and law firm Furley Page.

The potential commercial impact of a Brexit vote will be examined and the affects on the UK legal system.

The discussion takes place at Bridgewood Manor Hotel, Chatham, on Wednesday, June 8.

Following the four short presentations, attendees will be invited to join a discussion with Mr Eckersley and a panel of speakers.

Kreston Reeves executive chairman Clive Stevens said: “Now is the time to settle the European question in British politics.

“Post referendum the business landscape will undergo significant change, whatever the outcome.

“It is vital that business leaders stay informed to be able to make the most of this once in a generation opportunity – we look forward to supporting South East business to do just that.”

Peter Hawkes, senior partner at Furley Page, which has offices in Canterbury, Chatham and Whitstable, said: “As we draw closer to the referendum, both sides in the debate are turningup the volume on their arguments, attempting to drown out their opponents.

“Our event will avoid the spin and take a calm and measured look at what Brexit really means for businesses.”
