“The Australian British Chamber of Commerce is an important association for HSBC. We value the strong business relationships and strategic conversations that the ABCC helps to facilitate.”
Tony Cripps, Former CEO, HSBC Australia Ltd
"The Australian British Chamber of Commerce offers more than just networking opportunities—if you are part of a company with business interests in the UK it is almost a must to belong. I have been a member for several years, previously when I was with Virgin Australia and in my current role as CEO, Travel and Aviation with global travel insurance provider, Cover-More Group. Cover-More has expanding operations in the UK which we hope to grow significantly now that Cover-More is part of Zurich Insurance Group. I have no doubt that the opportunities that membership of the ABCC provides will help facilitate that growth."
Judith Crompton, CEO, Cover-More
“Jaguar Land Rover Australia has proudly been a member of the ABCC for many years, and the relationship has long represented much more to us than simply the membership of an industry body. Our involvement with the Chamber is an indispensable part of our operations, and - as the local subsidiary of a UK parent company – enables us to keep a finger on the pulse of relevant legislative, financial and commercial factors which have the potential to affect our business.
“Aside from the obvious benefit of giving us the ability to share ideas with businesses and individuals with similar objectives to our own, the Chamber provides an invaluable range of services which broaden our horizons and help to inform our business decision-making. The regular speaker forums and monthly events, in particular, enable wonderful insights by granting us direct access to influential politicians, business leaders, social commentators, researchers and others who help to shape the environment in which we operate.
“Last but far from least, the Chamber provides us with the means to speak with its thousands of members about our expanding ranges of luxury cars and SUVs and to develop the kind of relationships with them which money simply can not buy. In short, the Chamber is a vibrant and vital part of our business here in Australia.”
Matthew Wiesner, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover Australia
"Aberdeen Asset Management is a proud sponsor of the Australian British Chamber of Commerce and has derived great value from the opportunities this sponsorship provides. The ABCC’s broad reach across the Australian business community, and the range of business and hospitality events it offers, have given us the opportunity to strengthen business relationships and brand awareness among this network."
Brett Jollie, Managing Director Australia, Aberdeen Asset Management Ltd
"Allen & Overy has been one of the ABCC's supporting partners since we opened our offices in Sydney and Perth in 2010. We attend many ABCC events, from large lunch presentations through to intimate boardroom lunches. The ABCC has helped us on numerous occasions to access CEOs, regulators and other captains of industry, from the UK and locally. The Chamber often pro-actively suggests opportunities for our clients to obtain face time with key people, which is more than what many other Chambers of Commerce and Industry Associations are willing to offer. Guest feedback from many of our jointly hosted executive lunches has been extremely positive. The Consul General's end of year drinks function has also become an annual fixture that is not to be missed!
The ABCC team truly goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we receive real value from our relationship. Of the many partnerships in which Allen & Overy participates, the ABCC is clearly one of the most valuable. We look forward to continuing our support the Chamber for many years to come."
Grant Fuzi, Senior Partner, Allen & Overy
"RBS has had a long and proud association with the ABCC. It has provided an excellent platform to raise the profile of our brand in the Australian market through sponsored events as well as facilitating direct introductions to potential business partners."
Andrew Chick, Country Executive, RBS Australia
"I've been a member of the Australian British Chamber for over 3 years. The Chamber gives me an opportunity to promote what we are doing here at JustGiving to an engaged audience as well as the opportunity to socialise with likeminded people across a variety of industries at interesting and informative events"
Nikki Kinloch, Regional Director APAC, JustGiving
“ASG Immigration was started in London almost ten years ago. We opened our first international office in Sydney in 2009. We specialize in helping individuals and businesses with immigration related matters into the UK, Australia and the US. The ABCC has been a welcoming, warm and professional environment in which to meet new and established businesses in our direct target market. The events they run are interesting, topical and serve as a great networking forum or vehicle to entertain clients. The Chamber receives support and involvement from UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) as well as Austrade – their presence at ABCC events adds value to the overall experience.”
Matthew Amoils, Director, ASG Immigration Limited
