We changed our normal event approach to allow us to meet over 50 foundation Chairs. We invited the speaker – Sir Jon Cunliffe, Deputy Governor of the Bank of England – and ACF provided the occasion – their annual Chairs’ reception for members. Sir Jon was, as described by one of the ACF team, a “funny, approachable, knowledgeable and very timely speaker”, with “an added bonus of lots of Chairs talking to each other.” Sir Jon spoke on “the UK economy and implications for the future” on the same day as the PM made her major Brexit speech. Sadly the Chatham House rule prevents us sharing the many insights we gleaned. Our thanks to CCLA who hosted the event with their usual flair and efficiency.
