The theme "Navigating the New World" could not be more relevant for 2017's BABC Annual Transatlantic Business Conference, and I couldn't be more delighted that Chicago has been chosen as the host city. The "special relationship" between the US and the UK is poised to grow even stronger in the coming year, and the deep UK ties to Chicago make this a perfect venue for the BABC.
-- Stephen Bridges, LVO, Her Majesty's Consul General, Chicago
It is this backdrop of uncertainty and change that makes BABC’s Annual Transatlantic Conference so exceedingly important.
With Thought Leadership as its underlying theme, the discussions will not only inform, identify the power and relevance of strategic partnerships and, without a doubt, provide an important voice in the policy debates proliferating on both sides of the Atlantic.
-- Laurence Geller, CBE, Chairman, 2017 Transatlantic Conference
The 2017 Transatlantic Conference is a practical recognition of broad volatility across markets, economies, governance and borders. In parallel, it is a much-needed investigation and celebration of the thought leadership across the breadth of the 22-city BABC family, throughout the US, Canada and UK. Our incredible strength is founded upon a diversity of industry, capitalization and geography – and there is much leadership and brilliance to harvest as we all must – today – define opportunities, make weighty business decisions, commit capital, secure performance, mitigate risk, and be responsible corporate actors -- heavy weight on executives' shoulders. Look across our speakers and panelists, all top-of-their game CEOs and senior executives, and one will quickly see the genetics of the Conference – absolutely not parochial, but certainly "Chicago Practical." Be ready to grow great relationships and take on immediately and demonstrably relevant information. -- K. Thomas Stevens, President, BABC Chicago
