An evening at YouGov

Germans vs Brits - similarities and differences of two close neighbours

„Die Deutschen vertreiben die Melancholie mit Seufzen, die Franzosen mit Singen, die Spanier verbergen, die Wälschen verschlafen und die Engländer vertanzen sie.“ As this aphorism from Paul Winckler from 1685 implies, the relations between Germans and Brits have never been easy. But since the World Cup 2006 in Germany, things seem to be improving. The mutual respect is growing and the image of the two neighbours regarding each other is getting better.

The presentation of the evening will reflect actual cross-comparative studies that YouGov has run in recent years dealing with similarities and differences between Germans and the English. It will draw an amusing and entertaining view on the presence and the common future of the German-English-relationship.

Our host and presenter for the evening Holger Geißler studied Psychology in Heidelberg and Mannheim. He is board member of the German subsidiary of YouGov, the well-known and respected international market-research agency, established in London.

Events Overview ...


"EY is a global organisation which for many years supports the BCCG. In times where less and less British pupils and students focus on learning German, it is furthermore my particular personal desire to support not only the BCCG (as a member of the regional NRW Committee), but also the BCCG Foundation as a member of the Board of Trustees in its efforts to foster a vivid exchange of German-British students. Despite a very close relationship between our countries, I believe that it is vital to continuously support younger generations in the multicultural exchange."
