Webinar: Shevaun Haviland – Focus for UK Ltd – trade, purpose and ESG

As a member of the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK, which is part of the Council of Foreign Chambers of Commerce in the UK (CFCC), you are cordially invited to join us at 1:00pm BST on Tuesday 30th November for a webinar with Shevaun Haviland, the Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce, and their Head of Trade Policy and former MP, William Bain.

Shevaun, the new Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) is energetic, creative, strategic and experienced, and has great insights into government and business gleaned throughout her career, which spans the public and private sector across 3 continents. She is passionate about ESG, climate change, and the idea that business should be a force for good.

Shevaun will share her insights and key messages from COP26, as well as her expectations for the ICC World Chambers Congress which she will be attending later this month.  She will help us to understand what practical steps businesses can take to support the global net zero carbon objective, cover digital evolution, skills transition and share her views on the “levelling up” agenda.

She will also discuss the messaging from the B Corporations who presented in Glasgow, who propose that business needs to have a purpose, and should first be a force for good.

Joining Shevaun on the panel will be William Bain, Head of Trade Policy for the BCC, who will talk about how trade regulations are evolving and how the changes coming into effect on 1st January, aimed at getting goods moving, are likely to impact the flow of goods across UK borders.

This will be an “in conversation” style webinar to reach the key information useful to business today.

This event is free, but booking is essential. Links will be sent out in the 24 hours prior to the event.
