The Geneva Chapter celebrates its Silver & 25th Anniversary by returning to its roots and the now named Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues, for a Gala Dinner with Cabaret… and a fabulous, free Tombola.
This unique event will be held in the presence of:
The year when CHF 2.45 equalled £1; when a barrel of Brent Crude cost $27.80; there was a war in the Gulf called Desert Storm; BCCI collapsed; Tim Berners Lee put the World Wide Web on line; and Tottenham Hotspur won the FA Cup for the eighth time! In Geneva, the BSCC founded its second Chapter!
The inaugural event of the Geneva Chapter – a Business Luncheon – took place on the 31st October 1991 in the presence of the British Ambassador to Switzerland & Liechtenstein, His Excellency Mr. Christopher Long CMG, the late Bryan Jeeves, CMG OBE, President of the BSCC and the Geneva Chapter’s first Chairman, Michael Fornara. The Hotel des Bergues was the chosen location because of its strong, British connection, being owned at that time by Trust House Forte plc.
Over the past twenty-five years the Geneva Chapter has grown to become the leading business organization in Anglophone/"international” Geneva and the benchmark by which other business clubs and associations in the Geneva region measure their success.
The Cabaret: the exceptional Mozart Heroes!
MOZART HEROES have been an insider’s tip for all who want to venture way beyond the usual parameters of classical music, rock and film scores. Mozart would have lost his wig headbanging, and wrecked his violin on an excess of adrenalin. Watch them here! http://mozartheroes.com/en
