Leading economist to lecture on UK economy and Brexit
11 January 2018
Life after Brexit will form part of a Leeds Beckett University lecture by one of the region’s leading economists.
Will Holman, Deputy Agent for the Bank of England in Yorkshire and the Humber, will be guest speaker at the annual Economic Prospects event held by Leeds Business School.
He will set out the Bank of England’s current view on the UK’s economy, and the outlook for the coming years after the country’s decision to leave the EU.
He will also explain the Bank’s views on financial stability and the results of recent stress tests of the banking system before taking part in a Q&A session.
Before joining the Bank of England, Mr Holman worked as an economist in the private sector and in government, most recently at an economics consultancy and the communications authority, Ofcom.
Bank of England agents are key to making sure the bank has a well-rounded view of economic conditions from across the country, working with organisations ranging from small businesses to the largest global companies.
Mr Holman’s lecture will be of particular interest to professionals working in banking, financial services, accounting and economics sectors, as well as to academic staff and students specialising in those areas.
The lecture takes place between 9-10am on Tuesday, 16 January at the Rose Bowl, City Campus, Portland Crescent, in Leeds city centre.
