Networking Events For Bermudians In The UK

September 27, 2016

The Cabinet Office advised today that Bermuda’s London Office will be hosting two networking events in October for Bermudians living, working and studying in the United Kingdom.

The two planned sessions will be held:

  • Birmingham, Monday October 3rd 2016, 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm at the Stirlings Bar & Lounge 21 Ludgate Hill, Birmingham, B1 3DW.
  • London, Monday Oct 31st 2016, 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm at the Government of Bermuda London Office, 6 Arlington Street, London, SW1A 1RE.

“The networking forums will coincide with the Premier Michael Dunkley’s visits to the UK on 2 – 6 October to attend the UK Conservative Party Conference and on 30 October to attend the annual Overseas Territories Joint Ministerial Council [JMC] Meeting,” a spokesperson said.

“The Minister of the Environment, Cole Simons will join Premier Dunkley for the UK visits and will engage in significant meetings with key UK officials and organizations regarding Bermuda’s marine environment.

“As it relates to the UK Conservative Party Conference, the Cabinet Office advised that as an invited guest, the Premier will have an opportunity to meet with key decision makers in Prime Minister Theresa May’s Government. It is also the Premier’s intent while in the UK to have bi-lateral meetings with UK Government representatives in London.

“As has been the tradition in years past, the upcoming networking receptions provide an opportunity for Bermudians to have face to face dialogue with the Premier.

“Previously the UK reception has been held in London during the annual JMC. However this will be the first time an additional event will be held outside of London – in Birmingham, while the Premier attends the Conservative Party Conference.

“The Government has recognized that there are many Bermudians living in the Birmingham and surrounding area who may benefit from the opportunity of engaging with the Premier and other Bermudians who are not based solely in London.

“To RSVP to either event: email or telephone: 020 7518 9900.”

    Was this a planned event or will Mr. Simons be booking a last minute business class seat? Will he have someone to carry his bags for him?

  2. Curious Mind says:

    Just keep spending our money OBA. “invited guest” – OK

    • Hair says:

      FYI, Bermudians go over there to hide and the British government have to pay for them!!! Go figure that one out Curious….

      • Ya fullish says:

        Bermudians also go over there as the UK is a great place to get the experience that’s promised in Bermuda which never existed.

        • Thoughtful says:

          That’s why the British come here and don’t know a thing while it is depended on Bermudians to teach them how to perform a job the foreigner then takes from the Bermudian.

      • TO Hair:
        Maybe you are in Bermuda hiding out yourself.Go figure that, Hair.
        You are NO better.

      • Thoughtful says:

        No Bermudians go over there because they find themselves being forced out of their own country due to lack of jobs being filled by foreigners who come here for a few years then expect to get citizenship and voting rights. Atleast Bermudians are just happy and satisfied with a change of scenery. They never/will never make a fuss because they cant vote in foreign land know matter how long they have lived there! Bermudians view it as a privilege, Expats view it as ENTITLEMENT!

        • Say Whaat? says:


        • Pride says:

          Actually, most European countries have a pathway to PRC and citizenship after 5 years.
          Also, Bermudians residing in UK would have voting rights after an even shorter period.
          Yes, Bermudians are more privileged. Perhaps that’s where the sense of entitlement comes from,

          • Thoughtful says:

            Read what I said…Bermudians don’t think that they are entitled to vote no matter how long they have lived in another country….Bermudians DONT CARE…they are just happy to have the opportunity to LIVE in another! How many Bermudians do YOU know that live in other countries and think they are ENTITLED to vote?? That’s what I thought!!

      • Yes I says:

        Small price to pay for coming over to Colonize us and the rest of the Caribbean.

        • Family Man says:

          Us ??

          I don’t think they’re expecting the skinks and cahows to attend but you never know. I wasn’t even aware they could use a computer.

        • Double S says:

          Bermuda was never ‘colonized’ as it was empty when the Brits arrived. Learn your history.

        • Toodle-oo says:

          We weren’t ‘colonized’ , we were settled .
          Please learn the difference before you spew inaccurate opinions .

        • Pride says:

          The Brits were here before Bermudians!

  3. somuchless says:

    Why don’t Dunkley just become a flight attendant?

    • OMG!!!!!!!! says:


  4. TO somuchless:
    Yes, Dunkley appears to be there, just there.
    Useless and absorbed in photo taking.
    Else for that Pope nonsense!!!
    Too absorbed in his own stuff to even glance at Bermudians.

  5. Say Whaat? says:

    But didn’t some Bermudians leave here to get away from people? Why would they want to go to a social?

  6. A Bermudian in Wales says:

    Very good idea to provide these opportunities. Btw, some years ago, the UK government extended FULL UK CITIZENSHIP to all Bermudians, so Bermudians are on an equal footing (at least theoretically) with native UK citizens. However, it seems that refugees and migrants are often moved to the head of the lines over here in the UK, for jobs and otherwise.

  7. Uk forever says:

    Left Bermuda years ago not going back for anything, got a great job and more opportunities in life.
