European Meetings

European Meetings give members in Europe a chance to connect. They also are a valuable opportunity for North American members to attend and learn from professionals in another part of the world—often the new best practice or upcoming trend originates outside the U.S.!

Highlights of the June 2018 Spring European Group Meeting

The Selected European Group enjoyed a wonderful conference expertly hosted by Claire Austin. With firms representing the UK, Canada, USA, Australia, Germany and the Netherlands – a truly international meeting of friends. Highlights included the visit to Harwood Park Crematorium (built by Claire’s father John Austin), the afternoon of ‘Englishness’ at Claire & Peter house (sampling fish and chips, afternoon tea, falconry, croquet and clay pigeon shooting) and the private tour of Hatfield House and lunch in the Knot Garden (where Elizabeth I heard she was to become Queen of England). The business sessions were interesting and thought provoking. Topics covered the tsunami 2004 and the aftermath; Life at the Houses of Parliament and Brexit; Google and how to maintain your profile and Green & Blacks chocolate from creation to international brand. The Gala Dinner included entertainment from All The Kings Men – a male acapella group – something completely different! All delegates had a great long weekend in the rare English sunshine.
