      Tortoise on the Road - Bristol - Brexit

      To paraphrase the Talking Heads: how did we get here? How did one of the world's great developed democracies becoming its laughing stock, routinely compared to a banana republic or a failed state. Seven years ago, the UK was hosting the Olympics and seemed at peace with itself. In 2019, our politicians promise that there will be an 'adequate food supply' after Brexit, the Union is in greater jeopardy than ever and our unwritten constitution is being stretched to the very limit. What went wrong? Chair: Chris Cook, Editor & Partner, Tortoise What is a Tortoise ThinkIn? A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise. Breakfast from 8.30am, starts promptly at 9am. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can 'SlinkIn'! If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing thinkin@tortoisemedia.com We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person. Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
