President’s Letter

Dear BABC Members,

We hope you had an enjoyable summer. As we all return to the routines of Fall, we want to alert you to a series of exciting programs the BABC has planned for the upcoming months. First, we hope you will join us for an exclusive business meeting and networking reception in Wilmington, Delaware on September 18th with Sir Peter Westmacott, British Ambassador to the United States, and Alan B. Levin, Secretary, Delaware Economic Development Office. On October 3rd the BABC will host a business panel discussion about corporate sustainability and responsible strategies for global growth at GlaxoSmithKline’s new Double LEED Platinum Certified facility at The Navy Yard in Philadelphia. From November 4-6, 2013, Michael A. Nutter, Mayor of Philadelphia, will be leading a trade mission to the UK and we will host (in conjunction with UK Trade & Investment and Philadelphia government) the official launch reception for the trade mission on October 7th. Companies joining the Mayor’s delegation for this important trade mission will include those actively looking to expand to Europe in key sectors such as life sciences, clean-tech, tech, and financial and professional services.

Toward the end of the calendar year, the BABC is pleased to invite members and friends to celebrate the season at our signature annual holiday luncheon. This year the program will focus on British arts and culture in the region, and we will offer a celebration of Scotland (including a special whiskey tasting), as well as a comedic skit produced by The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre. There will of course be the traditional “Christmas Crackers” and the opportunity to network and win exciting raffle prizes. Keynote speeches include remarks from Mayor Nutter and Derek Gillman, CEO and President of the Barnes Foundation.

We look forward to welcoming you to our programs, and to hearing from you in between. Please visit the BABC website for all details about current events, and connect with us virtually via social media – Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Don’t forget to visit Flickr. We hope you find your photo from a BABC event, and enjoy browsing through BABC pictures. As always, thank you for your support and interest.


Hope P. Krebs, Esq. President, British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia
