Fall 2020 President’s Letter

Dear BABCPHL Members and Friends,

As our families, friends, colleagues, businesses, country, and world are faced with immense challenges, we are called upon to keep going.  It is the power of community and resolve that enable us to take one day at a time and move forward.  The BABCPHL is committed to serving you through good times and bad.  The UK-US transatlantic relationship has weathered world wars, depressions, and myriad set-backs throughout history.  The two nations actively band together and collaborate to enhance trade and commerce and to develop long-lasting valuable connections.

In support of this union, and to remain true to our mission, our goal is to maintain close contact with each of you to understand what you want and need from us during this tumultuous time. To help us understand your needs we are pleased to announce our partnership with Club Level member, KPMG LLP to conduct a pulse survey to gain a better understanding of how multinationals are managing.

The study takes less than five minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous and will not be attributed to any individual or company. Your participation will provide a valuable roadmap to better assist you and your business in meeting objectives and developing strategies to survive and thrive in this environment. Click here to complete the survey. In mid-November we will be hosting a webinar to present the results and a transatlantic business outlook.

During the summer months we delivered a social series that included quizzo night, whiskey tasting, and a master cocktail class.  This month we also offered two very important programs focused on the transatlantic relationship – Philadelphia International Airport’s status as a funneling airport and our first UK-US quarterly update policy webinar featuring Government leaders who discussed the UK-US Free Trade Agreement negotiations, Brexit, and how the pandemic is influencing trade.

In October and November are hosting a series of events about global mobility, employment law, education, cybersecurity, and more related to how Covid-19 has impacted our daily operations and what this means for our future.

Our December 10, Signature Annual Holiday Lunch has been moved to a virtual format, and will take place over Zoom from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST.  Save the date so you can participate in this special event!

Partner with the BABCPHL to navigate this uncertain new reality; we are a constant for you and your business through thick and thin.  Read on for information about our recent past and upcoming activities.  If you are not a member, and wish to learn more, contact us and we will schedule a time to talk.

Sincerely,

Nick Lotz

President, British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia
