British Business Club
Ian Mitchell

n Monday 15th February, the British Business Club (BBC) and the American Chamber of Commerce in Moscow (AmCham) held a joint networking evening at the Marriott Auraura in Pokrovka Street. The food was to the usual high standard of the hotel, but the drink supply seemed to respond to the master of ceremonies who said at the beginning of his speech that, “In the American tradition, I’ll keep it short.” The result was that for what remained of the evening many of the non-Americans discussed things like supply and demand, perhaps illustrating the sight mismatch between the British conception of a Club and the American idea of a Chamber. The wittiest explanation of the problem came from a Canadian who presumably could see the issue from both sides. “You gotta talk short if you wanna walk tall,” he said.
