In-Person Networking Receptions in New York and London
In Autumn 2021, BAB’s offices in New York and London were both delighted to welcome back friends and members for in-person networking sessions as part of the Accelerate program.
Many thanks to our hosts Laura Devine Immigration (in New York) and Deloitte (London) and our sponsors for helping make these events possible.
Accelerate Workshop for Inbound US Companies
In Autumn last year, BAB ran two workshop sessions aimed at US-inbound companies who were looking to hit the ground running as they expanded operations across the Atlantic.
Spread across two days, these workshop sessions covered everything from successfully marketing your business to a US audience, the legal considerations for doing business in the US, to navigating the American tax system, and even hiring and managing American talent.
We were delighted to be joined by a range of expert speakers from our network including:
- MaryLee Sachs, US CEO, Brandpie
- Rik Haslam, Executive Creative Partner, Brandpie
- Roger Barton, Managing Partner, Barton LLP
- Jonathan Kitchen, Partner, Barton LLP
- Kenneth Rashbaum, Partner, Barton LLP
- Ian Shane, Partner, Barton LLP
- Julio Jimenez, Principal, Marks Paneth LLP
- Len Adams , Founder & CEO, ACG Resources

Accelerate with Nicholas Wheeler, Founder and Chairman, Charles Tyrwhitt
Our Accelerate Workshops offer a unique opportunity for attendees to gain hands on, practical knowledge for expanding and growing their business across the Atlantic.
These workshops are led by industry experts to allow attendees to take a deep dive into the granular details of what it takes to expand your business across the pond, and each session offers concrete takeaways and actionable ‘to-do’ items.
BAB’s Accelerate series is a fantastic opportunity for networking with like-minded individuals and businesses.
As both the UK and US continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, BAB will begin to transition more events from their current virtual format, to in-person events with face-to-face networking.
