CIC Saskatoon: International Drink and Chat: Britain is GREAT

March 5 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CST

Free

The British Consul General is in town on March 5. And she wants to have a drink with you.

The Saskatoon branch of the Canadian International Council, in partnership with SREDA and the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce, invites you to an after-work opportunity to meet with Consul General Caroline Saunders, as she visits Saskatoon as part of her March 2020 visit to Saskatchewan.

As Britain leaves the EU, what does this mean for the UK’s relationship with Canada? Come and hear Caroline Saunders, British Consul General for the prairies, talk about Britain’s post-brexit vision, the opportunities to grow UK-Canada trade and investment and the potential for the UK and Canada to have an even bigger impact on the world stage. This is a great opportunity to find out what this means for the UK-Saskatchewan trade opportunities.

For students, this is a great opportunity to meet the Consul General, and to meet business Sapeople from some of the most dynamic and successful companies in Saskatoon.

For business people, this is your opportunity to talk face-to-face with the Consul General about your business, and to meet with a good number of very dynamic university students – potential employees and future colleagues.

Drinks are available by cash bar.

There is no admission fee, but we ask that you pre-register by Eventbrite, so we have an idea of attendance numbers and can prepare the space for you.
