This JLA Speakers Breakfast debated the big issues that will affect the worlds of business and politics in 2017. From the UK’s economic outlook to conflicts around the world; key general elections to the role of technology in society and commerce, five leaders in their fields discussed how things might play out.

The speakers were:

Tom Fletcher – Tom advised three Prime Minsters on foreign policy before being appointed the UK’s youngest ever ambassador. He sought to change the face of diplomacy using social media. He now teaches and leads a scheme to help 29million children access education with the aid of private enterprise.

Emma Sinclair – Emma is the co-founder and CEO of EnterpriseJungle. After a career in the City she started Target Parking with the aim of improving the service and reputation of car parking and facilities management. Her new company, an SAP Partner, helps organisations match their needs to talent.

Paul Johnson – Paul has been the Director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies since 2011. Arguably the most respected body on tax, public finances and the economy, the IFS is widely seen and the definitive independent commentators on government spending and the UK economy.

Mike Rann – Mike served as Premier of South Australia for nine years. In his time he revolutionised the state’s economy and infrastructure, with sustainability at its heart. As well as various roles leading action on global climate change he also served as Australia’s High Commissioner to the UK and as Permanent Representative to the UN World Food Programme and the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation.
