W Houston Luncheon: Brexit’S Impact On Transatlantic Relations

World Affairs Council of Greater Houston says
The Brexit vote creates certain challenges and some possible advantages for the U.S.’s relationship with its oldest and strongest ally. The decision might also significantly impact the energy sector for the UK and its partners on issues such as shale drilling, the status of the North Sea, renewables and the allocation of energy resources. Prolonged low oil prices and Brexit may also serve as an opportunity for British and other energy companies to explore new models of corporate restructuring.

Stephen Heidari-Robinson was David Cameron’s lead advisor on energy and the environment, during which time he played a pivotal role in resetting the UK’s electricity generation strategy and developing the country’s carbon plan. Stephen has over 10 years’ experience in the energy sector, working first as an Associate Partner in McKinsey & Company, then as a Vice President at energy technology and services company, Schlumberger. He has led projects in the UK, Middle East, India, the US and Europe. Stephen has also worked in private equity, the charitable sector and as a civil servant. He is the author of a forthcoming Harvard Business Review book, Reorg – How to Get It Right, and various articles on organizational change. Stephen was educated at Oxford and London Universities and is a fluent Farsi speaker.
