Speaking to a packed room at this morning’s Spectator breakfast club event on Europe, Seven Hills co-founder Michael Hayman outlined the opportunity for a more positive, forward looking narrative around the EU and the question of a potential ‘Brexit’.
In a wide ranging discussion, Michael said that Britain needed to make the case for the conditions required for a momentum economy and that the debate needed to focus on what was needed to achieve it: “Europe needs to focus on creating an accelerated performance culture where businesses can thrive”.
He added: “Recreating the EU as a momentum economy should be the driving ambition.”
Michael spoke alongside Vicky Pryce, Chief Economic Adviser at the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr), Gerard Grech, CEO of Tech City UK and Damian Green MP. The debate was chaired by the Spectator’s business editor, Martin Vander Weyer.
