Introducing Gordon Brown: Our Latest Guest in the BCC Leadership Programme


We are pleased to announce this major, high-profile virtual event in October.


Gordon Brown, former British Prime Minister, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Leader of the Labour Party, in conversation with Dr Adam Marshall, Director General of the BCC.


This fascinating and unmissable debate, the latest in the BCC’s Leadership Programme, will address one of the biggest economic crises of our time and the importance of global cooperation to find solutions.  


Join Adam Marshall and Gordon Brown as they discuss the immediate interventions and future strategic considerations needed to address a catastrophic fallout, including inevitable job cuts, which will lead to unprecedentedly high levels of unemployment. 


See further details of the event below and check out the full programme of virtual events on the BCC website.


When: Tuesday 27 October  


12:00 - 13:00 (UK Time)     



In this wide-ranging conversation, we will hear Gordon Brown discuss the big universal challenges:

  • a new way to trade as we move into new future international trade relationships;
  • future tech-driven industries and a need for relevant skills,
  • climate change;
  • diverse representative leaders;
  • the UK’s continued competitiveness; and
  • its role as a global leader.


There will also be an opportunity for attendees to put questions to Gordon Brown.
