Business figure Kingsley Aikins was the keynote speaker at a Brexit-themed event in Belfast.
Davy Northern Ireland’s third annual conference in the Waterfront included a panel discussion which featured EY chief economist Neil Gibson and Alan Werlau, head of investment strategy at Davy.
Mr Aikins, former chairman of multi-million euro lending platform Linked Finance and former president of the Worldwide Ireland Funds, provided a masterclass on how effective networking could be used to build up business and personal strength to help ride out Brexit’s storm.
“Small countries need their global friends and networks more than ever — they are critical in times of intense disruption,” he said. “Northern Ireland’s global diaspora is vitally important and it should provide a good support if used and managed wisely.”
