Susie Kitchens, HM Consul General, on the work of the British Consulate General, Boston

Details of event.

I find my first job when dealing with New England companies, politicians, media or Consular colleagues is to define who we are. People don't know what to call us. Am I the Ambassador for London?, The Council of England? The British... what?

So, to be sure that we start off on a good footing, the correct title is that I am the British Consul General, representing the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland at the British Consulate-General, Boston. (Though we're actually based in Cambridge.)

Great Britain means England, Wales and Scotland. The United Kingdom includes Northern Ireland as well. The British Isles, includes mainland Britain, all of Ireland (north and south) and some 6,000 smaller islands such as Guernsey, the Hebrides and other outlying bits.

So once, you've worked out what to call us, why would you want to go there? more
