WELCOME TO THE BRITISH BUSINESS CLUB...
The forum for business men and women of all nationalities to make business, social and sporting contacts in the German Federal State of North Rhine Westphalia.
The British Business Club, established over 50 years ago, plays an active part in the international community of greater Düsseldorf, serving members of all nationalities having business or related activities in this area. The Club organises a range of activities including monthly dinners with guest speakers from diverse walks of life, sports as well as other events and raises funds for charity and good causes. An informative and lively monthly newsletter is published.
The Club provides a meeting point in an informal and relaxing atmosphere for members to make new contacts both professional and social, enjoy one another's company and exchange opinions and information.
We are probably best known for our wide range of stimulating after-dinner speakers at our Club Dinners which usually are held on the second Tuesday of each month. Recent speakers have included Baron Bates of Langbaurgh who walked from London to Berlin in aid of the Friedensdorf charity ( to raise funds for medical care for child victims of war) in 2014 and David Haines, CEO of Grohe AG. Past speakers have included the former British Prime Minister, Sir Edward Heath, the British Ambassador to Germany, Howard Flight, founder and managing director of Guinness Flight Investment Management, Bernd Pischetsrieder, Chairman of BMW, Sir Ian Vallance, Chairman of British Telecom, Sir Alistair Morton, former Chairman of Euro Tunnel. We have been entertained in a lighter vein by Sir Clement Freud, Ray Allen and "Lord Charles" - the world's greatest ventriloquist, and re-lived the high spots in the world of sport with Freddy Trueman, Henry Cooper, Terry Venables and Chay Blythe.
The Club also holds a very successful Burns Night evening in January of each year. Please refer to our Photo Gallery for past event highlights. Sports include, squash, badminton, rugby, cricket and flying.
