The Business Club is being formed in response to a growing interest amongst the WBGS & Old Fullerian community to connect in a business capacity with former form-mates and those from different generations from the School, to exchange ideas and build a network of contacts.
We have now run two very successful and well attended BC dinners at the RAC on Pall Mall with 25 and 22 attendees respectively on the July and Nov dates.
The format has been based around guest speakers (Edward Stringer RAF in July and Nicola Burnside Alpine Cars in November) who as senior leaders spoke about their industry sectors and their areas of interest, and provoked thought and debate.
Planning has started for 2024, taking into consideration feedback from attendees.
Key areas for discussion ahead of final plans for future BC dinners are;
– Venues: eg Lords, OFA business boardrooms or PDRs at interesting venues.
– Format: Retain current format or broaden across drinks / cocktail receptions etc.
– Speakers: Begin planning with committee input and thoughts.
