Webinar recording: what North American companies should expect for UK business growth in 2021

In this webinar, we discussed the latest findings from our recent UK-North America investment report. We were delighted to have been joined by Iain Wright, Director for Business and Industrial Strategy at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, who presented on the findings from the latest official UK Business Confidence Monitor.

Our panel of Moore Kingston Smith experts covering Corporate Finance, Global Mobility and HR Consultancy joined Iain in a Q&A discussion.
