    15:30 Topical Panel Debate - The future of Europe - overcoming the challenges and embracing the opportunities

    The last year has seen some of the biggest disruptors to the political scene of the last 50 years. Europe faces political and economic uncertainty, the possible break-up of the European Union, a rise in populism and protectionism, global factors such as the recent US election all having an impact. However, with big changes come big opportunities.
    This lively panel debate will discuss how businesses are overcoming these challenges, what new opportunities they have been able to capitalise on and what new opportunities they see in the future of Europe.

    Moderator: Virginie O'Shea, Aite Group

    Speakers: William de Vries, Triodos; David Kiddie, Expert Advisor; Benoit Vesco, Meeschaert; Agamemnon Kotrozos, Eurobank
