Programme outline

With an ever changing political and economic climate, never has the word of the Bank of England been so important to guide and advise on the future of the UK. This event will give you the opportunity to hear directly from an agent from the Bank of England as to the considered implications, hot off the press.

Join us for an off the record presentation and hear from Phil Eckersley, Agent, South East & East Anglia Agency, Bank of England who will be discussing the following:

  • How the economy has coped with the pandemic
  • The permanency of the effects
  • How consumer and business behaviours might have altered

This is an excellent opportunity for questions after the presentation providing a good chance both to get a closer understanding for the way policymakers are feeling and to feedback your own experiences.
