Edward Chapman

Ed has been a member of the BJC since May 2013, joining after attending (and enjoying) Spring Drinks at the RWA. He was working at a law firm in North Somerset at the time and joined to make new connections and to explore the parts of Bristol he didn’t see as a student.  His BJC highlights include two memorable trips to our twin city Bordeaux, supporting Charlie’s presidential year as Chair of Heritage, Culture & Sport, organising mock school interviews at Merchants’ Academy and being lucky enough to be at our ringside tent at the Balloon Fiesta for the nightglow on a dry evening!  Ed works as a corporate lawyer at Royds Withy King in Bath, and has a particular interest in the technology sector. As an out of city member these days he is most likely to be spotted at the key events like the Annual Dinner.  His advice would be to get involved with as much as you can (particularly when you first join), as this is the best way to discover everything that BJC membership offers. Ed would also recommend serving on the Council of Management if you get the chance, as it gives you an opportunity to shape the direction of the BJC, and it also means you get to attend the famous end of year celebration dinner!
