Last week, the Kruger Cowne CN Breakfast Club members were treated to a very special session at Home House, welcoming Director of Politics and Communications for David Cameron, Craig Oliver, and BBC World Affairs Editor, John Simpson CBE.
Hosted during arguably the most turbulent phase in British post war political history and almost a month after the results of the EU Referendum were first announced, the packed room listened to debate and discussion on THE hottest topic that is currently making headlines across the world – Brexit.
Oliver was a key figure in the Campaign to Remain in the EU and shared unique perspectives into why the vote went the way it did. Pressed with questions from the world-respected journalist who was moderating the session, the audience gained illuminating insight into what was happening at the heart of government.
This year will mark John’s 50th Anniversary at the BBC. Over the decades, John has reported from more than 140 countries and interviewed in excess of 200 world leaders. John speaks on varied topics, including Brexit, The Middle East, China and many, many world issues, events, as well as anecdotes from his travels and his vast career as a broadcaster and journalist.
Craig speaks with authority about how Governments, businesses and institutions can develop strategies to deal with the challenges of the Brexit decision. More recently, his role within the Prime Minister’s office provides audiences with a new perspective into the UK’s political issues… Why the referendum was called? Why they made the choices they did? What went wrong? And what lies in store for the UK outside of the EU?
