From Wall Street to Kings Road West

That was the headline on 'The Interview' with Mia Drennan in the Newbury Business News, published today and that article has paved the way to a blossoming array of opportunities to work with Mia in both her capacity as Managing Director of Square Mile Connections and in her role as the European President of the Transatlantic Business Council.

I met with Mia this afternoon, together with the Global CEO of the Council, John Baldwin and Square Mile's Recruitment Director, Nicola Ogston for a strategic planning session to determine the best way to promote both Mia's own business and the role of the Transatlantic Business Council. The two neatly overlap and there is much scope to promote them both.

Essentially the TBC exists to encourage and facilitate UK companies seeking to foster business links in the Tri-State area of New York, and equally any US companies seeking to set up here in the UK.

The productive meeting was adjourned to the amiable atmosphere of the Lock, Stock & Barrel, off Northbrook Street, where we met up with Square Mile Non-Executive Director, Rob Thomas, from Newbury Building Society and the meeting neatly transformed into a social occasion.

I shall be seeing Mia and John again in the morning, bright and early for the breakfast meeting of the Newbury Business Group at the Donnington Valley Golf Club.
