Economist to give post-Brexit update at SFHA Finance Conference
12 and 13 November, Crieff Hydro.
SFHA has announced that political economist John McLaren will lead a session at this year’s Finance Conference.
The economic and political future of the UK is uncertain. The UK is scheduled to leave the EU just a fortnight before this year’s conference.
John will share his views on the future of the UK economy, and its impact on the social housing sector, with delegates at this year’s finance conference.
John is a political economist whose work is concentrated on the Scottish economy and finances but also covers a wide range of macro and micro economic issues.
He has worked as an economist at H.M. Treasury, the Scottish Office, the Centre for Public Policy for Regions at the University of Glasgow, and he was an Executive Director of Fiscal Affairs Scotland. He is currently working as an economic consultant and runs the website Scottish Trends. He is also a regular commentator on the Scottish economy in the media.
As well as this post-Brexit economic update, delegates will also hear from motivational speaker Adrian Webster; an update from Ian Brennan, Director of Regulation at the Scottish Housing Regulator; and from a panel on the future of finance post-2021.
The conference also boasts a range of workshops on key issues relevant to finance and senior staff including financial risk and stress testing, cybercrime, preparing for the new data collection, alternative funding and the cost benefits of collaboration.
