Hot on the heels of the new Brexit trade deal and with a new US President about to be sworn in, not to mention the concern around the pandemic, the beginning of 2021 could be a little unnerving for the global economy.
To help get a handle on what the economy will look like in 2021, Inspire is hosting an Economic Update, with leading global economist, Christian Gattiker on Thursday 21 January.
In partnership with Evolve, the free webinar is the latest in a series of virtual events from Inspire, to support local business owners and leaders throughout the pandemic.
Mr Gattiker who is Chief Strategist and Global Head of Research at Bank Julius Baer, will present an update on the global economy and how recent events, including Covid-19, the US election and Brexit could influence the economy for 2021 and in the future. The leading economist will also talk through his predictions for the next few months on interest rates, foreign exchange rates and the stock market.
Warren Munson, Founder of Inspire and Evolve, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have Christian Gattiker as guest speaker for our next Economic Update webinar. He’s world-renowned and I know will have some very interesting thoughts and predictions on the UK and global economies in 2021, and what this could mean for business leaders.
“There’s no doubt that the last year has been a challenging time for businesses and the economy in general, so for local business leaders to be able to hear Christian’s thoughts, insight and opinion on a wide-range of economic issues will be very valuable.”
The webinar is free to attend, but registration is required. Following the presentation there will be a Q&A session, in which attendees are welcome to ask questions of the economist.
