Great British-American Pub Night: QUIZZO! – Test Your Knowledge of UK & US Trivia

On Thursday, September 20, 2018, the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia hosted a truly GREAT British-American Pub Night Quizzo contest. Nearly 60 BABCPHL members and friends gathered for this entertaining and competitive trivia game at the Victoria Freehouse located on Front Street in Old City, Philadelphia.  The establishment was filled to capacity with 14 teams representing law, accounting and insurance firms, banks, sports teams, manufacturing companies, theater and government groups.  It was a diverse and enthusiastic crowd including people from the French American Chamber of Commerce who partnered with us on this program.  Michael Pedrick, BABCPHL President, opened the evening with welcome remarks, introductions, and thank you to sponsors, Forensic Resolutions and The Welsh Government.

Efe Sokol, BABCPHL Board Member and Senior Representative from the Welsh Government, co-sponsored the evening. Efe has been an active member of our Board of Directors for the past two years and the Welsh Government has been a longtime supporter of BABCPHL activities.  Efe was joined by Kelly Taylor, Business Development Executive.  The Welsh Government is the devolved Government for Wales.  They seek to constantly create the right environment for business – to equip the private sector in Wales with the tools to compete as the high-value player in the global economy.  Wales has a thriving knowledge economy, industry-focused R&D and a loyal workforce.  Wales is linked to key UK business hubs with a first class transport infrastructure, and some of the least costly and best property around.

Howard Silverstone, Director of Forensic Resolutions, was the Master of Ceremonies for Quizzo Night. He has served as BABCPHL President on two occasions and is currently the Programs & Events Chairman.  Howard has been actively involved in the BABCPHL for more than 25 years, and was recently appointed by Her Majesty The Queen as a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for his service promoting British business in the United States.  When Howard is not supporting BABCPHL activities he is managing Forensic Resolutions, a forensic and investigative accounting firm, providing solutions to complex business problems and insurance claims.  Howard is the quintessential BABCPHL Board Member and supporter – we could not ask for a more involved or dedicated individual!  Howard was the master of ceremonies for our dynamic and highly competitive game of QUIZZO.

Howard masterfully led Quizzo Night participants through three rounds of ten questions each focused on the following categories: UK/US history, geography, pop-culture, sports and music. Howard’s humor and wit infused the entire evening with good fun and loads of cheer.  The night included delicious British pub style food, drinks and coveted prizes including: four club box tickets to one of Philadelphia Union’s remaining games of the season; two tickets to Philadelphia Orchestra orchestra level seats at an upcoming concert; a BABCPHL branded umbrella, baseball cap and calendar; and a bottle of French wine and two tickets to an upcoming French Chamber event.

The BABCPHL extends special thanks to sponsors, Forensic Resolutions and The Welsh Government; event partners, the French American Chamber of Commerce and the Philadelphia Orchestra; and Quizzo Night prize winner donors the Philadelphia Union and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Congratulations to winning team, Duane Morris, BABCPHL Club Level Member! The team was led by Hope Krebs, past BABCPHL President and current board member.
