By way of background, our CEO Roundtable series regularly features some of the world’s leading chairs and chief executives who we invite to lead a discussion for a group of around 25 senior business leaders on key issues of importance to British and American business. The event operates under Chatham House Rule and provides a valuable opportunity for dialogue amongst global business and government leaders. This series is made possible by the sponsorship and support from BAB member, Willis Towers Watson.
For this CEO Roundtable Series, we are delighted to welcome Sir Richard Dearlove KCMG OBE, Non-Executive Chairman, Ascot Underwriting Ltd and Non-Executive Director of Ascot Group Ltd. Sir Richard is a former Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS). Sir Richard will lead a discussion on Post-Brexit Britain and its place in the world.
