Rupert Matthews is known as one of the most articulate and pragmatic of the Members of the European Parliament involved in the Brexit process. Rather than “hunting unicorns” he is seeking to persuade his colleagues in the European Parliament to seek pragmatic solutions that will deliver on the result of the 2016 referendum while as smooth a transition as possible to the new realities of life outside the European Union.
An amusingly informative speaker, Rupert peppers his speeches with revealing anecdotes about his colleagues which means he is in constant demand on the political speaking circuit.

Rupert is Chairman of Projekt Hansa, an international organisation that works to bring together business leaders and politicians across northern Europe.
