Message from Chairman

CEO Profile

Warm greetings for this New Year 2021 where everything has to get better! We have been through a year like no other with each of us finding we have all the time in the world for everything we do.

I found a great deal of time to read – one book, I read again after 56 years – was Jules Verne’s famous tale: “Around the World in 80 Days”. The traits of the English hero Phileas Fogg he created are remarkable. Totally unflappable, never upset by any disaster or problem, all events big and small taken in stride, meeting all major costs, rescuing a damsel in distress, finding he returns a day late, still calm. Yet finally saved by his mistake of travelling east, gaining a day thereby winning the wager and a wife!

I commend Phileas Fogg to all of you! Stay positive, persistent and cheerful. Above all, be grateful for all the mercies we receive.

Now is the time to move ahead. We in BBG will continue our interests in helping small and medium business, more so in the light of the UK-EU agreement on free trade. Our monthly meetings will continue on Zoom till further notice and we plan a UK delegation later in the year. Any bright ideas from Members are most welcome to Vijay Krishna and the undersigned

As most of you know, we support growing trees and creating water bodies in the good work being done by Joss Brooks of Auroville. This and other charities we will continue to support. We are grateful to all members who sponsored the Ex-Services Association in November ’20

From the Chairman and our BBG Committee, all best wishes for 2021
