PRH's Rebecca Smart Tackles Brexit Concerns at Global Publishing Summit
Rebecca Smart, m.d. of Ebury, has reassured Frankfurt Book Fair attendees on the eve of the fair that Penguin Random House UK is "open as usual", declaring that the British are global and European citizens. Smart addressed Brexit concerns at the Global Publishers Summit in Frankfurt this morning (18th October).
Smart, who likened waking up to the pro-Brexit referendum vote on 24th June to entering the plot of a "post-apocalyptic novel", took the opportunity ahead of the impending negotiations to both address and downplay the impact of leaving the European Union would have on business relationships, citing examples of global bestsellers, and the importance of PRH UK's publishing partners in Europe and in the US.
