Kerwin Blackburn attended a lecture organised by the University of Manchester's Global Development Institute and delivered by Professor Alan Winters on Friday 23 June in Manchester, titled Taking Interdependency Seriously: Brexit and the Rising Powers.
Asking what the future holds for the UK following the country's departure from the EU, the lecture gave an overview of the key strengths and opportunities concerning the UK's relationships with the 5 main emerging 'BRICS' - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - in what has been termed the UK's 'BRICSIT' movement.
The lecture provided interesting insights into what the UK needs to do to build greater working relationships with our counterparts in these emerging parts of the world.
This complements the Cultural Awareness and Intercultural Communication service that US2U Consulting offer to our clients to ensure they are best placed to overcome challenges and make the most of the UK's transition to a more interdependent future.
