I've heard a lot of bad news about how companies in the UK are leaving due to Brexit.

Well countries have survived worse haven't they?

C'mon let's hear about some good things that are growing the British economy.

Tell me how we're aggressively recruiting Indian programmers, in order to build a cluster of IT talent that will rival Silicon Valley?

@Kolyo,
Sorry, the most talented from around the world are already here in Silicon Valley where we live. However, the cost of housing has become so high, more growth are being made in places like Austin and New York.

@Kolyo,
Tourism - the plummeting pound provides particular propensity to peripatetic people.

@nacredambition,
London used to be my favorite destination for many years, and have become familiar with the city. My favorite museum was the National Gallery where I visited every time I was in London. We even had a able2know meet at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese on Fleet Street some years ago. I have also visited York and Greenwich a couple of times.
Some years later, I met Lindsay Hamilton from London, the professional singer, on a cruise in the Caribbean. She has had solo shows in London in addition to directing musicals.

That's a perfect answer. When one's currency falls in value it should help exports, right? Brexit could lead to other countries imposing tariffs on most British exports, but they can't impose tariffs on tourism.
