Your World Affairs Council is pleased to partner with Baker Donelson, the International Business Council of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Center for International Business at Belmont University to bring you this timely and important program.
The word “monumental” is not too strong to describe the crises facing leaders in the United Kingdom. The Prime Minister has just stepped aside for a controversial leader after failing to achieve an European Union “Brexit” deal while London comes to grips with the seizure of a British flag vessel by Iran. Join us for an “off the record” conversation with UK Consul General Andrew Staunton to discuss these challenges and more facing America’s close ally.

Join us for an “off the record” conversation with British Consul General Andrew Staunton
Andrew Staunton was appointed as Her Majesty’s Consul General of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Atlanta in June 2018. Andrew is the senior UK government representative in the Southeast United States responsible for relations with the states of Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi and Alabama.
Before taking up his posting in Atlanta, Andrew served four years as Deputy Head of Mission and Economic Counsellor at the British Embassy in Athens. He was also Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy in Dublin from 2009 to 2013. Throughout both of these postings, Andrew’s main focus was on the economic crises in Greece and Ireland, boosting bilateral relations, promoting the UK’s interests, and working on a range of issues linked to the European Union. Prior to this, Andrew worked in the Foreign Office as Deputy Director responsible for security.
Moderating the event will be British Honorary Consul, IBC advisory board member and TNWAC Board Member John Scannapieco.
