Introducing the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia Young Professionals Group (YPG)

Approximately one year ago more than a dozen eager BABC members gathered to brainstorm about how to launch a “young professionals group” within the BABC. We are pleased to announce designated YPG Leaders from various industry groups who have agreed to spear-head the effort: Kara Bergman, I-SITE; Wil Block; Polk Smart, ARAMARK; and Toby Wallace, Aberdeen Asset Management. Howard Silverstone from Forensic Resolutions who has been actively involved with the BABC as both a past President and as a Board Member for almost two decades is the liaison between the BABC Board of Directors and the YPG.

Since the original brainstorming session about how to gather like-minded young professionals with a connection to UK business the BABC YPG has held one exclusive event and is actively planning the second program. We are building our YPG member list and conducting outreach about this important new sub-group of the BABC. Please help spread the word! If you or your colleagues are looking to make business connections at this professional level please join us. (READ MORE)

The BABC YPG is a group of members under the age of 40 who come together through social events and meetings to develop valuable business contacts within the British American Business community and to exchange ideas and information with a cross section of industry professionals, trade and governmental interests. As a YPG Member, you have the chance to meet and engage with BABC members and speakers to provide and foster leadership development within our community.

For more information on the YPG and how to get involved, visit our Young Professionals web page to read a full description, watch video testimonials and read our blog: “An Englishman’s View on Philadelphia” featuring members of Philadelphia’s BABC and YPG sharing stories and comparing life in England to the trials and tribulations of living in the City of Brotherly Love.
