Mod Madness: UK-US Trivia & Networking Event Recap

On Thursday, April 13, 2023, the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia Emerging Leaders Group (BABCPHL ELG) Co-Chairs collaborated to offer Mod Madness: UK-US Trivia & Networking. The happy hour event was open to all BABCPHL members and friends at all stages of their career. The program took place at The Trestle Inn and was sponsored by Forensic Resolutions.

Four teams competed for first place in the trivia contest, created by Howard Silverstone, President, BABCPHL and in-house MC extraordinaire! Donning his Union Jack vest and hat, Howard’s humor and wit infused the evening with fun and entertainment. The three rounds of trivia included mod and pop culture questions mostly focused on music and film from the 1960s and 70s with some modern-day questions thrown into the mix. Before and after the contest, the bar was abuzz with networking. Each guest was treated to drinks and snacks and the opportunity to win some business card raffle prizes.

The BABCPHL ELG launched a decade ago and started meeting again as soon as we returned to in-person operations. This was the second gathering this fiscal year, and we were honored to formally introduce our new ELG Co-Chairs, Ben Hooson-Jones from The Mike McCann Team, and Melissa McClure from the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau. The BABCPHL is lucky to have two dedicated and creative professionals at the helm of this important group.

Special thanks to our event host Ian Cross, Marketing & Communication Chairman of the BABCPHL and Co-Owner of the Trestle Inn; our sponsor, Howard Silverstone, President of the BABCPHL and Director, Forensic Resolutions; and our ELG Co-Chairs, Melissa and Ben for enabling everyone to come together for a spirited evening of networking, libations and fun. Congrats to Team #1 on their win and cheers to all for the good time!
