British-American Business Council Conference 2010

12-14 May 2010

Willis Group, The Willis Building
51 Lime Street

The next annual British-American Business Council Conference (BABC) will take place next year from 12-14 May in central London. This will be the first time in four years that the conference will have been hosted in London and is expected to bring together members from its 20 chapters in the United States, who will be crossing the Atlantic for the conference, and 5 chapters from the UK.

The conference will take place in a politically important year in both the United Kingdom and the United States, with a general election in prospect in Britain in the first half of the year, and mid-term elections due in the United States in November. We will be living with the continuing consequences of the credit crisis, which will, undoubtedly, continue beyond next year and well into the new decade. The principal focus is to look ahead into this new decade and assess how the leading business sectors in both the UK and US will evolve, adapt, and contend with the challenges ahead. These challenges will be assessed and analysed in a series of presentations and panels led by key global business leaders and sector specialists who will consider the following sectors:

• Healthcare and life sciences;
• Media, Telecoms and the creative industries;
• Aviation, Defense and National Security;
• Energy and the Environment;
• Financial Services and Insurance.

In separate sessions, the topics of Law, Taxation, HR and Employment and how they will change in the new decade are set to be discussed.

The overall objective of the conference is to present a comprehensive assessment of how these principal business sectors, all of which are of critical importance to both the UK and US economies, will manage over the next five to ten years. Those attending the conference will gain a comprehensive view of the prospects for the key components of our economies across the board, and be able to put the challenges of their own businesses into the wider context, and better understand the environment in which they will be operating.
On the evening of the first day of the conference, 13th May, a Gala Dinner will be held at which members will be conferring the Annual BritishAmerican Business Channing Corporate Citizenship on David Brennan, CEO of AstraZeneca.
