AGENDA

SUMMIT AGENDA / 7-8 OCTOBER 2020

AVAILABLE DIGITALLY AND ON DEMAND

As we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis and approach the end of the Brexit transition period, we look ahead to 2021 and beyond being a time of significant change and transition for the UK.

Spread across two days with a main plenary studio session running each day from 9am to 12pm, followed by specialist breakout sessions and with on-demand content, this year’s Summit will focus primarily on the economic recovery, the role the private equity and venture capital industry will play in the recovery and the industry’s role in the UK’s transformation.
