"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, Asia-Pacific 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."

"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
