The ramifications for business should the UK opt to leave the EU in June's Referendum will be debated in the Jubilee Room at the Houses of Parliament from 6-8pm.

Simon Israel, Home Affairs Correspondent for Channel 4 News, is among speakers and will be discussing security and policing.

He will be joined by Richard Barnes, former Deputy Mayor of London, discussing government and democracy; Dr Vishwajeet Rana: Chief Executive of Global Banking School in London, speaking about banking, foreign direct investment, and finance; and John Walmsley LLM, a solicitor with JKW Law, to speak about law and regulation.

The debate is the first meeting of the Bucks Business School Leadership Network, a free educational business network forum meeting quarterly to help entrepreneurs and executives to work around future business trends.

Richard Bingley, Director of Bucks Business School, said: "We are delighted that Louise Ellman MP has chosen to host Bucks Business School's inaugural Leadership Network briefing at the Houses of Parliament.

"Within the business community many openly admit that a knowledge gap still exists in terms of what may or may not arise from a Brexit vote. The ultimate purpose of the meeting is to brief the business community in an objective manner on likely impacts following any UK exit vote at the upcoming EU membership referendum in June."

The Leadership Network will also be running bite-sized executive workshops on issues of organisational leadership, diversity and disruptive marketing during coming months. For further details email
