Board Member Appreciation & Membership Development Dinner

Board Member Appreciation & Membership Development Dinner

On Monday, June 12, 2017 the BABC of Greater Philadelphia hosted a by invitation only, end of year Board Member appreciation and membership development dinner, featuring two UK Government officials as the keynote speakers. Freya Jackson, Counsellor, Head of Global and Economic Policy Group at the British Embassy in Washington, DC and Matt James, Managing Director, Commercial, and Acting Director USA for the Department for International Trade traveled to Philadelphia to discuss the current climate for UK/US trade.  More than 65 attendees enjoyed an active networking reception and informative evening program in the iconic Lincoln Memorial room at The Union League of Philadelphia.

Rhett Workman, Chairman of the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia and Managing Director of Government and Airport Affairs for American Airlines welcomed guests and introduced the speakers. He thanked the entire Board of Directors for another strong twelve months, and for dedicating their time and resources to the BABC.  Rhett talked about our recent 25th anniversary, and announced the unveiling our new brand which will go-live at the official start of our new fiscal year on July 1, 2017.  Rhett explained, while we are launching a more modern look to our logo, our mission will remain the same – to serve British businesses in the Greater Philadelphia region, including, Southeastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and the State of Delaware by focusing on what we do best – providing our members with valuable and timely programs and events; business development and networking opportunities; and thought leadership about current events and government regulations that affect transatlantic business.

The US and the UK are each other’s largest investors – together we have approximately $1 trillion invested in each other’s economies. There is no more important time than today to share information, create valuable business relationships, and learn current trends that will affect the transatlantic relationship.  The BABC is the go to organization to help member companies improve and grow business by introducing them to clients, customers and service providers. Rhett explained we could not do this without the dedication of our key stakeholders, our diverse group of Club Level members, representing a myriad of industry sectors as well as our partners in the British Embassy, the Consulate, and the Department for International Trade (referred to as “DIT”).  Collaborating with the UK Government throughout the year bolsters regional transatlantic business development and commerce, and enables us to better serve our members.  The BABC is grateful to the UK Government for their partnership and thanked their alignment with us in Philadelphia.

Rhett introduced Freya Jackson who joined the Embassy team in July 2016, just shortly after UK citizens cast the momentous vote to exit the European Union. Freya leads the Embassy’s teams covering a wide range of issues including trade, investment and economic policy, environment and energy, transport and science, research and innovation.  Prior to joining the Embassy, for the past three years Freya led the Foreign Policy Team in the National Security Secretariat of the UK’s Cabinet Office (NSC equivalent).  Before that she was the Senior Foreign Policy Adviser during the UK’s Presidency of the G8 in 2012, and from 2007 to 2011, Freya led the Climate Change and Global Economy negotiating team in the UK’s Mission to the United Nations in New York.  Prior to that, Freya worked as the Head of Nuclear & Missile Defense Team for the Security Policy Department, and at various assignments with the FCO across the globe including Buenos Aires, Casablanca, and Mumbai.  Freya received her BSc Honors in Environmental Sciences from the University of East Anglia and her Master of Sciences from Kings College, London.

During dinner, Freya spoke about the unpredictability of government affairs during the past year – the momentous Brexit vote, the US election, and the snap UK election. No one could have imagined the surprises in store for us and the world.  While the elephant in the room – Brexit – was unavoidable, Freya focused her discussion on four main facts:

  1. The UK and US political relationship is as robust as it has ever been;
  2. The UK and US trade relationship is stronger than ever – the two countries are each other’s largest trading partners and employers;
  3. The UK economy is sound and growing, and employment is up – it is the highest rated economy for doing business; and
  4. The UK is a great place to live and to conduct business.

While there are definitely uncertainties, two fundamentals hold true – the strong relationship and economic ties between the two counties.

Freya introduced Matt, the Commercial Director at the Department for International Trade, a post that he has held since the department was created in 2016. Matt is currently covering for the Director of DIT USA, leading a dynamic team who assist British companies exporting to the US, and work with US companies looking to invest their business in the UK. Matt joined the UK civil service in 1995, and over the last 20 years has held roles as Commercial Director in the Cabinet Office, the National Health Service and Department for Work and Pensions. He is a qualified commercial mediator and specializes in complex deal-making and negotiation, having led on many of the UK Government’s most challenging commercial issues.  Matt has a PhD from Bath University in organizational identity, narrative and power, and an MBA and Bachelor’s degree in music. He works and lives in London, and was honored to travel to Philadelphia as his first official visit outside of New York City.  Matt echoed Freya’s comments regarding the four truths about the UK economy and the relationship with the US.  He also spoke to the important ties between DIT and the BABC of Greater Philadelphia.  DIT is grateful to the BABC for our partnership and the valuable work we do to promote trade and commercial links between the two regions.

Rhett thanked Matt and Freya for their kind words and reassuring commentary about the current state of affairs. “We are undoubtedly living in tumultuous times, but one thing is sure – the relationship the US shares with the UK is strong and will become more so as we develop strategies and form partnerships to navigate the changing landscape.”  Rhett explained the BABC of Greater Philadelphia is here to help our members do just that – navigate the evolving business climate.  Now that we have entered our second quarter century of operations in this region, we thought it was the perfect time to rebrand.  Rhett introduced attendees to Ian Cross, BABC Vice President of Marketing & Communications.  Ian is a creative entrepreneur with more than 20 years of experience growing and managing start-ups in technology, entertainment and hospitality.  He is CEO and a co-founder of I-SITE – an award-winning Interactive Design and Technology firm specializing in web and mobile solutions for civic initiatives, business, healthcare and entertainment.  Ian has been an active member on the BABC Board of Directors since the early 2000s, and has served as Vice President of Marketing & Communications for the past ten years.  He helped the BABC transition from a traditional chamber of commerce model to one of the first Chapters to have an active website and a presence in social media.  He has been the ever present force leading the BABC through advances in technology, making it easier for us to communicate with members, share information, and stay connected with our counterparts throughout the world.

Ian opened his remarks with the definition of “rebrand.” “We all know what a ‘rebrand’ is – changing the way an organization, company or product is seen by the public or its customers.”  He explained the BABC VIP dinner was a soft launch pad for the new BABC logo.  The design will officially go live to the general public by July 1 – the start of our new fiscal year.

The BABC has spent the past quarter century positioning itself as the go to organization for UK business-related matters. That holds true – and will remain even more so as the two nations navigate the rapidly changing global landscape.  Our new logo communicates: forward motion/moving into the future; partnership between the two countries; transatlantic travel; growth, speed, prosperity, connections, and the geographies we represent.  The new logo is contemporary, clean and clear.  The BABC of Greater Philadelphia’s brand speaks to members’ trust in us to help maximize their business potential.  The BABC looks forward to helping members create valuable relationships on both sides of the Atlantic.

Before the evening concluded Ian encouraged everyone to stay connected with us, visit our website, follow us on social media for current BABCPHL news, and attend our upcoming events. He then drew a winning business card for two complimentary tickets to our next program, thanked people for attending the dinner, and reminded everyone to pick-up their branded BABC gifts before departing.

The BABC fiscal year is ending on a high note. Optimism is in the air and as Matt so clearly stated, while there is uncertainly, and transition is afoot, the UK will ensure Brexit is a success as a result of partnerships with the BABC and other organizations.  We would like to extend sincere thanks to our current members for their support throughout the fiscal year.  If you are not a member of the BABC of Greater Philadelphia we hope you will become one.  We look forward to upholding our promise to serve you.

BREAKING NEWS: Statement on UK Election Results

British-American Business Council (BABC) Statement on the 2017 UK Election Result

The next UK Government is charged to deliver one of the greatest political and legislative challenges of our time: Defining a new relationship between the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union (EU).

Our network represents 22 chapters in major cities throughout the US, UK and Canada, including major British and leading American firms, the latter accounting for the largest source of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the UK. The majority of transatlantic businesses wished to see the UK remain a part of the EU – the world’s largest trading block. Transatlantic business therefore has a huge stake in the outcome of Brexit negotiations. In the light of the British people’s decision we are committed to help building a fair, competitive and global Britain, in partnership with the EU and other countries in the world.

Delivering clarity on Brexit negotiations

To ensure that the UK remains an attractive place to live, work and invest in, it is imperative that the new UK Government delivers clarity as to when and how it wants to proceed with the Brexit negotiations. Any outcome of the negotiations needs to ensure that it supports British business’ trade in goods, services and data flows, secures US investment and investment-related jobs in the UK and creates the conditions that promotes the UK as an attractive destination for investment going forward.

The BABC appreciates the previous UK Government and Departments efforts in addressing our transatlantic business’ concerns and priorities. Now, with the first negotiation round in sight, we urge the new Government to show its promised openness to find practical, reasonable solutions to the complexity of issues that Brexit entails, and sufficient time for businesses to adjust. Our overall call for the new UK Government remains that the period of uncertainty needs to be as short as possible.

Ensuring a strong and sturdy UK economy now and post-Brexit

A strong UK economy is important for business, workers and consumers; and it is a crucial factor in ensuring a strong role for the UK during the negotiations with the EU.

The next Government’s objective needs to create an even more competitive business environment, particularly through a smart and encouraging tax system, investment in infrastructure, an immigration system that allows our companies to attract the skilled talent they need, and a focus on trade and investment and the delivery of a comprehensive Industrial Strategy, among others.

US-UK Economic Relationship as a source of strength and opportunity

The UK-US economic relationship stands for unparalleled business ties across the Atlantic. The US is the number one export destination for the majority of UK regions and nations. UK firms continue to grow and expand into the US. US firms employ more than one million workers in the UK.

There has never been a better opportunity to relaunch and strengthen the UK-US economic relationship as a source of strength and opportunity. We are excited about the shared commitment expressed by the political leaders to explore future options of further economic integration.

Even during the complex Brexit negotiations, much can be done to offer more opportunities for UK and US firms in each other’s markets. We encourage the next UK Government to continue efforts to open a formal dialogue on the future of the UK-US trade and investment relationship; meant to provide short- and mid-term options that can help to foster UK-US trade in goods and services, too deepen investment, and to explore options for formal trade arrangements in the future that can work in partnership with the EU and other countries.

British-American Business Council (BABC):

The British-American Business Council (BABC) is the largest transatlantic business network, with 22 chapters in the UK, US and Canada, and over 2,000 member companies based in major business centers throughout North America and the United Kingdom. Its membership includes many of the world’s largest multinationals, as well as hundreds of middle market and smaller companies.

The Secretariat as well as the Policy and Trade support for the BABC is being provided by BritishAmerican Business (London).

 

 

 

 


2017 International Soccer Night

On Wednesday, May 17, 2017 the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia teamed up with the Chilean, French and German American Chambers of Commerce for International Soccer Night at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, PA. More than 50 attendees gathered on the deck overlooking the beautiful stadium and river for networking, food and drinks.  The evening was perfect – the sun was shining and it was warm and breezy.  And, Union earned their third win, ending in 2-0 against Houston.

Before guests were escorted to their reserved stadium seats, BABC sponsor companies, TD Bank, N.A., Pepper Hamilton LLP and Johnson, Kendall & Johnson as well our hosts from the Philadelphia Union spoke briefly about their businesses. Jane Rosenberg, Executive Director of the BABC of Greater Philadelphia welcomed guests, thanked the partnering organizations, and introduced the sponsors.

Carl Cherkin, Vice President of Business Relations & Communications with Philadelphia Union was our last speaker.   Since the stadium opened, Philadelphia Union has been a steadfast friend to the BABC – we have hosted numerous events with them, and they have always offered coveted branded gear and tickets to games throughout the year.  Carl has been on staff with Philadelphia Union from the very beginning.   He originally joined the club in 2009, as VP, Public Relations and helped guide the successful launch of the 16th team in MLS, in one of this country’s most competitive sports environments.  Carl spoke about Philadelphia Union’s history and development.  Philadelphia was awarded Major League Soccer’s 16th team on February 28, 2008. The combination of extensive grassroots support spearheaded by the Sons of Ben and a public/private partnership between Philadelphia Union, the State of Pennsylvania, Delaware County and the City of Chester enabled the construction of a state-of-the-art soccer stadium and convinced MLS that the Philadelphia region deserved a soccer team.   On March 25, 2010, Philadelphia played its first ever match, a 2-0 loss to Seattle Sounders FC.  On April 10, 2010, the club’s Inaugural Home Opener, Philadelphia notched the first victory in team history beating D.C. United 3-2 in front of 34,870 fans.

The stadium is a magnificent place, and the international business community enjoyed a perfect evening. The weather was ideal, networking food and drink flowed freely and the Union won!  Special thanks to sponsor companies TD Bank, N.A., Pepper Hamilton, LLP and Johnson, Kendall & Johnson for sponsoring the evening.

UK Prime Minister’s Statement on the Attack in Manchester

I have just chaired a meeting of the Government’s emergency committee Cobr, where we discussed the details of – and the response to – the appalling events in Manchester last night.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, and the families and friends of all those affected.

It is now beyond doubt that the people of Manchester – and of this country – have fallen victim to a callous terrorist attack – an attack that targeted some of the youngest people in our society with cold calculation.

This was among the worst terrorist incidents we have ever experienced in the United Kingdom.  And although it is not the first time Manchester has suffered in this way, it is the worst attack the city has experienced, and the worst ever to hit the North of England.

The police and security services are working at speed to establish the complete picture, but I want to tell you what I can at this stage.

At 10.33 last night, the police were called to reports of an explosion at Manchester Arena, in Manchester city centre, near Victoria Train Station.

We now know that a single terrorist detonated his improvised explosive device near one of the exits of the venue, deliberately choosing the time and place to cause maximum carnage and to kill and injure indiscriminately. The explosion coincided with the conclusion of a pop concert, which was attended by many young families and groups of children.

All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people, but this attack stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice –deliberately targeting innocent, defenceless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives.

As things stand, I can tell you that, in addition to the attacker, 22 people have died and 59 people have been injured. Those who were injured are being treated in eight different hospitals across Greater Manchester. Many are being treated for life-threatening conditions.  And we know that among those killed and injured were many children and young people.

We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not as a scene to cherish, but as an opportunity for carnage.

But we can continue to resolve to thwart such attacks in future, to take on and defeat the ideology that often fuels this violence, and if there turn out to be others responsible for this attack, to seek them out and bring them to justice.

The police and security services believe that the attack was carried out by one man, but they now need to know whether he was acting alone or as part of a wider group.  It will take some time to establish these facts, and the investigation will continue. The police and security services will be given all the resources they need to complete that task.

The police and security services believe they know the identity of the perpetrator, but at this stage of their investigations we cannot confirm his name.

The police and emergency services have – as always – acted with great courage and on behalf of the country I want to express our gratitude to them.  They acted in accordance with the plans they have in place and the exercises they conduct to test those plans, and they performed with the utmost professionalism.  400 police officers were involved in the operation through the night, and many paramedics, doctors and nurses have worked valiantly – amid traumatic and terrible scenes – to save lives and care for the wounded.

Significant resources have been deployed to the police investigation and there continue to be visible patrols around Manchester, which include the deployment of armed officers.

For people who live and work in Manchester, there remains a large cordon in place around Manchester Arena and Victoria Station, which will be in place for some time. The station is closed and will remain closed while a detailed forensic search is underway.

We know that many friends and relatives of people caught up in the attack are still trying to find out what has happened to their children, brothers and sisters, parents, and loved ones. So please think of those people who are experiencing unimaginable worry, and if you have any information at all relating to the attack, please contact Greater Manchester Police.

The threat level remains at SEVERE.  That means that a terrorist attack remains highly likely.  But the independent Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, which sets the threat level on the basis of the intelligence available to them, will continue to assess this throughout today and in the days ahead.

Later today, I will travel to Manchester to meet the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, Ian Hopkins, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, and members of the emergency services who have come to Manchester’s aid in its moment of need.  And – as I announced last night – the general election campaign has been suspended.  I will chair another meeting of Cobr later today.

At terrible moments like these it is customary for leaders, politicians and others to condemn the perpetrators and declare that the terrorists will not win.  But the fact that we have been here before, and the fact that we need to say this again, does not make it any less true.

For as so often, while we experienced the worst of humanity in Manchester last night, we also saw the best.

The cowardice of the attacker met the bravery of the emergency services and the people of Manchester. The attempt to divide us met countless acts of kindness that brought people closer together.

And in the days ahead, those must be the things we remember.

The images we hold in our minds should not be those of senseless slaughter, but of the ordinary men and women who put concerns about their own safety to one side and rushed to help.

Of the men and women of the emergency services who worked tirelessly to bring comfort, to help and to save lives.

Of the messages of solidarity and hope of all those who opened their homes to the victims.

For they are the images that embody the spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain – a spirit that, through years of conflict and terrorism, has never been broken. And will never be broken.

There will be difficult days ahead. We offer our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of those affected. We offer our full support to the authorities, the emergency and the security services as they go about their work. And we all – every single one of us – stand with the people of Manchester at this terrible time.

And today, let us remember those who died and let us celebrate those who helped, safe in the knowledge that the terrorists will never win – and our values, our country and our way of life will always prevail.

 


Department for International Trade Briefing

The British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia

Department for International Trade Briefing

On Monday, May 15, 2017 BABC Board Members along with a select group of executives from other businesses and regional organizations visited the British Consulate in New York City.   More than 50 people participated in the meeting led by Ross Allen, Director, Department for International Trade (DIT), USA and Deputy Consul General in New York.  Ross opened the meeting with a briefing and high level overview of what is currently happening in the UK.  Theresa May’s surprise June 8 general election announcement started a period of “purdah” (the pre-election phase in the UK, specifically the time between an announced election and the final election results).  Ross introduced members of his team, and a leader from each sector represented spoke about their campaigns and regional opportunities in the Greater Philadelphia region.

Rhett Workman, BABC Chairman, talked about the BABC mission – bringing businesses together to bolster the trade and commercial relationship between the US and the UK. He presented the BABC as the go to organization for British business development in the region.  The BABC’s job is to help members connect the dots, and create valuable relationships to enhance their businesses.  Rhett mentioned the importance of partnering with DIT and other organizations in order to best serve our members.

Rebecca Lewis, Deputy Head of Trade & Investment, New York is the DIT liaison on the BABC Board of Directors. She is also the lead for the energy sector.  Rebecca kicked-off the DIT sector discussion and financial services, life sciences, advanced engineering, UN trade, food & drink, retail, tech & digital followed.  The breadth and scope of DIT’s work is expansive and impressive.

Everyone sitting around the table had the opportunity to introduce themselves. A dynamic question and answer session followed, focusing on how DIT generates their business; the areas of growth and greatest focus for the UK government; and trends related to trade with the US and the rest of the world.

The BABC thanks DIT for hosting this informative meeting and for the valuable time spent speaking with us about their role and objectives. The BABC invites DIT sector leads to contact us when they are in the Greater Philadelphia region.

The 2017 Transatlantic Conference – Recap

Each year the BABC brings together global business leaders to promote dialogue between the United States and United Kingdom. This year Chicago hosted the annual meeting.  The two-day Conference explored the 2017 theme “Navigating the New World,” focusing on evolving opportunities as the United States, Canada, and Europe absorb changes in the realities of economies, trade, borders, and governance.

The program opened at Shedd Aquarium on Wednesday evening, May 10. Lawrence Geller, CBE and Chairman of the 2017 Transatlantic Conference introduced speakers: Robert Winslow, Chairman, CBRE; Stephen Bridges, LVO, British Consul General; and Brad Keywell, Co-Founder Groupon, Uptake Technologies, Echo Global Logistics, MediaOcean, and Lightbank, to name just some of his ventures.  These dynamic speakers set the tone for the conference and paved the way for more than 40 presenters who engaged conference attendees in meaningful dialogue throughout the day on Thursday, May 11.

Sessions began very early on Thursday, and were planned down to the minute. Speakers presented in the Cathedral Room of the University Club – a remarkable building.  Leading global multinational executives spoke about: healthcare; energy; UK/US consumer trends; global talent mobility; big data; fintech; financial markets; and the dynamics of enterprises and startups.  Penny Prizker, Chairman, PSP Capital Partners and the 38th US Secretary of Commerce was the keynote speaker.  The day concluded with a closing reception and dinner at the legendary Art Institute of Chicago, in the Terzo Piano Modern Wing.  The Lyric Opera received the 2017 British Consul General Award and JB Pritzker, Chairman of the Pritzker Group was the keynote speaker.  PJ O’Rourke provided entertainment, and comic relief.

The 2017 Transatlantic Conference was flawless. It was meticulously planned and organized.  Attendees enjoyed the educational panels and speakers, and networking with senior business, government and academic participants from across many industries and regions.  We offer special thanks and congratulations to the Chicago BABC Chapter for hosting.
