BREXIT Specialist Robert Hardy To Address World Forum


Brexit advisor and registered EU trade expert, Robert Hardy will address the 2018 World Forum for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Liverpool, 11th and 13th June.

The world’s biggest business festival, the World Forum for FDI will attract over 500 delegates from corporates to government officials and explore the latest in solutions, innovation, and best practices, with topics ranging from Rise of the Robots, Workforce Development & Talent Acquisition, The New Global Disorder, The Investor Perspective and Cybersecurity.

Panellists will discuss current economic trends, future drivers powering tomorrow’s economies, the importance of protecting intellectual property and why artificial intelligence is set to explode, with economists, futurists and site selection experts discussing global issues and their impact on FDI.

Commercial Director of Oakland Invicta, an authority at reducing food losses due to cargo contamination, Robert will join the panel to discuss; The New Global Disorder: Brexit, Trump, China and Global Risk, and as an authority on international trade, a registered expert with the EU Commission and Brexit advisor to the Institute for Government, InterTradeIreland, InvestNI and specialist Customs planner, will shed light on how industry can navigate Brexit to its advantage.

Stated Robert: “I am honoured to be invited to address the World Forum and look forward to our constructive discussion and debate. To many UK businesses it may seem like we’re teetering on the verge of Brexit chaos, with smoke and mirror information offering no clear route of how to get through, but there are processes already in place which will lessen its effects and have the potential to create a number of post Brexit benefits.

“By embracing change and Brexit as an opportunity to examine the processes, and by exploring how additional elements can potentially run in tandem, with little or no effect on the movement of goods, including to or from Ireland, it is possible to safeguard customer experience so that at worst there is no change, perceiving instead a supply chain opportunity to improve, broaden and to further develop. Brexit can work for you!”

Robert will also be speaking at the next in a series of dedicated Brexit Seminars at the NEC, Birmingham on the 27th June, joining industry experts to address an international delegation from food businesses and non-food importers and exporters, Embassies, logistics providers and consultants from the UK, Ireland, Europe and Asia.
