If we began the summer period with the ending of the gripping 126th Annual General Meeting with Mr. Carlos Espinosa de los Monteros as our Guest of Honour, we come back ready to face the second half of the year with more energy than ever.
In fact, September will be full of activities and events. The first one will be the Induction Week of the XV edition of the Graduate European Programme. It starts on the 16th of September. This programme offers university graduates the opportunity to undertake work experience in London whilst also attending Business English classes and workshops at Regent’s Universtity London.
On the 17th, just one day later, and in the collaboration with other Foreign Chambers of Commerce in London, we will hold the International Wine Tasting. In this event guests will taste the most typical wines and tipples from the countries represented. On this occasion Marqués de Cáceres, member of the Spanish Chamber, will be providing the Spanish Wines. Moreover, it will be a good opportunity to do networking at an international level as 10 different foreign countries will be represented on the evening. For further information of this thrilling event, please click here.
In addition, the third session of the new series Leadership in focus Forum, “Influencing for Success”, is getting closer. This dynamic and interactive activity will be held on 24th of September at the Spanish Chamber. The Leadership series will continue with two more inspiring sessions before the end of the year -one on 30th October and one more in November- and it will resume in 2014. Keep an eye on our website and the newsletter to know more about forthcoming topics.
If September comes fully packed, October is even more loaded with occasions to keep you occupied. Due to the success of past editions, we are delighted to announce two more sessions of the Elevator Pitch before the end of the year. The first one will be on the 1st of October and the second one on the 3rd of December. The Elevator Pitch is commonly known for being an event focused on expanding the network of our participants and exploring the synergies among them.
For those of you that have never attended one or do not know how it works, there are two pointers that make this event extra special; only one participant per company is allowed, and there is scope for no more than two companies from the same sector to partake in the event.
If you end up too stressed after your pitch, you may wonder if you are making the most of your body and mind to cope with day-to-day challenges. How can we structure our work to be happier and less stressed? These and many more questions will be revealed in the workshop “Success without the stress” on the 3rd of October and organised in collaboration with Unusual Connections, member of the Spanish Chamber.

And we could not miss the celebration of one of the most exciting nights of the year, Halloween. The 31st of October we will celebrate an informal Halloween Party in a Spanish way. It will take place at the recently renovated Zorita’s Kitchen, part of The Haciendas, a stunning location with views over the River Thames. For the time being, we can only disclose that the event will offer guests the opportunity to try a delicious wine selection as well as cured meats. More information of this fantastic event will be soon published in our website and newsletter.
Furthermore, the Patrons’ Club is back and we have lined up two exclusive events for our Patrons before the end of the year. The first one will be on October 15th and Patrons will be invited to watch a thrilling match between the England National Football Team against Poland at Wembley Stadium. This is a decisive match for finishing top of the group that leads directly to classification to the World Cup in Brazil next June. Moreover, it is a great opportunity to strengthen relations among our Patrons.
Patrons will be gathered again on the 21st November for an exclusive blind wine tasting sponsored by The Haciendas, member of the Chamber. Further details will be soon be sent to all Patrons; in the meantime save the date in your diary.
And it does not finish here. There is still much more to come so if you want to be up to date, do not hesitate to check out our website or sign up for our weekly newsletter totally free of charge.
