    Featuring:
    Tom Clarkson – Research Director, BritainThinks

    Nicola Quayle – Senior Partner, Manchester Office, KPMG
    James Stewart – Head of Brexit & Vice Chair, KPMG

    Brexit won’t just impact the five million EU nationals in the UK, or British people living in Europe. For all of us, new rules could make a big impact on how and when we travel. Employers will need to shake up how they help staff through both scenarios, while making sure Brexit doesn’t damage their access to talent.
    Also on this episode, Chief Economist Yael Selfin outlines her latest forecasts for the UK economy, sterling and house prices. Read our latest UK Economic Outlook here: http://kpmg.com/uk/economicoutlook

    Tim Sarson – Partner, International Tax & Location Strategy
    Yael Selfin – Chief Economist
