On Board the Cutty Sark


The British Business Club reaches new heights in Greenwich 
The British Business Club hosted its first evening reception on the Cutty Sark on Friday. The tourist attraction - which has recently been refurbished - welcomed nearly 400 members of the Club on board.
The reception offered a networking opportunity for members of the Club and gave them a chance to meet Sir John Armitt, Chairman of the British Business Club and UKTI Chief Executive Nick Baird.  
The Club – which now has just under 6000 members - also used the opportunity to highlight the venues it has across London where members can watch the speakers in Lancaster House via a live video feed. Delegates who are unable to attend Lancaster House are being given the opportunity to attend either the Institute of Directors (IoD), London Chamber of Commerce and Digital Enterprise Greenwich. Sir Alan Collins, Managing Director, Olympic Legacy visited Greenwich recently to go to one of the British Business Club sites at Mitre Passage. This venue has been provided by Digital Enterprise Greenwich which is part of the Royal Borough of Greenwich. They have set up space in their building where Club members can meet, arrange one to one meetings, watch live streaming from the British Business Embassy and watch the Olympics. They have provided a welcoming environment for Club members to attend and enjoy refreshments whilst networking with other members and business people. Sir Alan also took a trip on the new cable car which goes from North Greenwich to the Excel Arena, showing some of the best views that London has to offer, including the Olympic Park, the Shard and the Gherkin.
