30th Anniversary Celebration Featuring Ambassador Pierce & A Taste of Wales

The British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia has been connecting professionals and building transatlantic business ties between the US and the UK for three decades. You are cordially invited to this first in a series of three programs honoring our 30th anniversary on:

Tuesday, June 8, 2021 from 4-5:00 pm EST (virtual).


Dame Karen Pierce, British Ambassador to the United States, one of the world’s most accomplished diplomats, is our keynote speaker. Ambassador Pierce has served in high-ranking posts throughout the world.  We are truly honored she is joining us to recognize the important historic relationship between the Greater Philadelphia region and the United Kingdom, and to thank our Organization for strengthening the connection between these two great nations. The Honorable Jim Kenney, Mayor of Philadelphia, our special guest, will welcome Ambassador Pierce.

Throughout history, the US and the UK have been bound by deep cultural, economic and political ties. The current administrations of both countries share many of the same global priorities. Speakers will address some of the most pressing topics of our generation. They will discuss how the UK and the Greater Philadelphia region are positioning themselves to lead the charge and contribute to positive change and enhanced global partnership.

Our area boasts myriad connections to the United Kingdom and to Wales in particular. This 30th anniversary celebration will include a “Taste of Wales,” featuring a representative from Penderyn Distillery who will lead a whiskey tasting. In advance of the event, every registrant will receive a special sample package from Penderyn.

We look forward to raising a glass and celebrating this milestone with you!
