A Chairman's Welcome | July 2017

July 7, 2017

Dear Members and Friends of the British Business Club Düsseldorf


I would like to extend a warm welcome to the British Business Club Düsseldorf (BBCD) website to all our members, friends and visitors. We will be gradually increasing the content on our website over the next few months, so do come back and get updated from time to time.


The next club event will be a dinner at the Industrie Club on Wednesday 26 July, where our guest speaker will be Dr Robert Pfab, COO of Carbon-Clean Technologies GmbH, Cologne . His talk will be entitled The Energiewende – the dirty secrets underlying the transition to clean energy, a topical and engaging subject, which should provoke considerable debate.


Our club event featuring the Düsseldorf Lyric Opera, "Culture and Cocktails" will be held on the evening of Tuesday 5 September at the Ellington Cocktail Bar in Düsseldorf.


The next BBCD business networking lunch at the Hotel Nikko will be at 13.00 on Friday 25 August, with the final one for 2017 being on Friday 27 October. They will continue to be held every two months in 2018.


Some further dates for your diaries are as follows. The Tesla Dinner has now been confirmed for Wednesday 13 September at the Industrie Club, followed by Tesla test drives for 15 lucky diners on the following morning. The club's international golf tournament will be held at the Kosaido Golf Club on Sunday 24 September. The Christmas party will also be held at the Kosaido Golf Club on Saturday 2 December.


Last, but not least, the British Business Club Düsseldorf will be celebrating its 60th anniversary on Sunday 8 July 2018. We plan to hold a special event to celebrate, so please keep that date free in your diaries!


I hope that you will all enjoy these events and those that we are planning for later this year and for our 60th birthday year.



Best regards from Benrath
