The unexpected decision by British voters to leave the European Union has one of the biggest news stories of the year.  What will it mean for the international trade?

Given his family's business activities, he spent an extensive amount of time in the UK from a young age and Studied at Cambridge and  Oxford Universities Tom has additional insight and historic perspective of the British economy and it’s relationship within the European Union.  Tom will offer some historical context that might provide an appreciation as to why the “leave” voters prevailed and comment on British attributes that remain after the vote and that seem to be overlooked.  He will also offer some observations on issues regarding the European Union and how they influenced the Brexit vote. 

Our second speaker, Brad Bertler,is a Senior International Tax Partner at Ernst &Young (EY) in Milwaukee.  With over 21 years of international tax experience, Brad works extensively with multi-national companies to align their tax and business objectives.  Brad, along with an EY UK Tax Desk, will discuss practical business and tax implications of the Brexit vote.  He will also share insights as to pragmatic approaches to dealing with the various issues created by the Brexit vote.
