Sir Christopher Meyer will be opening this year’s Finance Professional Show (FP Show) with the keynote speech.
The UK’s longest serving ambassador to the United States since the Second World War is set to give his insights into the geopolitical landscape and how it bears on the future of the market.
Sir Christopher Meyer was in Washington for five and a half years, with his term coinciding with major events such as 9/11, the wars in Kosovo, Sierra Leone and Afghanistan.
After leaving the diplomatic service, he chaired the Press Complaints Commission for six years until March 2009.
The FP Show – which takes place on 8th November at Olympia in London – also revealed the afternoon debate, ‘The Politics of Finance’, which will see Philip Coggan, columnist at The Economist, discuss how current and future parliamentary activity is shaping the financial sector’s outlook.
The full seminar programme – which will consist of seven sessions in total – will be released in the next few weeks.
“The seminar programme will be the most ambitious we have ever undertaken and we guarantee that broker visitors are in for a stimulating and thought provoking day of debate, panel and roundtable sessions, but with the emphasis on being able to fully participate and put questions to our guest panellists,” said Rachel Fellows of R&R Events, organiser of the FP Show.
“Along with over 100 businesses covering the full range of specialist lending, visitors will find something of interest in every part of the Show.”
Attendees will have the chance to register for the individual seminars ahead of time to ensure they secure their place.
