Barbara’s other activities and interests include:
Founder Member of the British Bulgarian Business Association (BBBA)
BBBA is an independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting its Members and promoting business relations between Bulgaria and the UK. BBBA provides a network and platform for business people to facilitate dialogue and change.
BBBA was launched in January 2015 following the dedication in 2014 of a small group of British and Bulgarian Businessmen and women, including Barbara Page-Roberts, who were the Founder Members. It currently has some 150 members.
Member of the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum
The Mission of the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum (BBLF) is to unite organisations with shared values that build their businesses in a responsible, transparent and ethical way. We are a platform for exchange of good practices and ideas for Bulgaria’s business and social environment. We engage and work with key figures in politics, business, diplomacy, NGOs and the media to drive social change together.
