Cranfield’s France alumni community hosted a special Brexit debate in Paris, bringing together an expert panel.

Cranfield economist Dr John Glen and Director, Centre for Customised Executive Development, was joined by Jonathan Lewis (partner, Clifford Chance), Maxime Lefebvre (ambassador for inter-state commission and cross border cooperation, French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Professor at ESCP Europe), Marcel Bejjani (senior advisor, ESCP Europe) and Thierry Marques (Senior Advisor at Grant Thornton Executive, Vice-President of Ponts Alliance).
