Testimonials

Khawar Mann OBE

As the first Business Advance member in 2021, I can say it has been a great investment for Auxilium for the visibility and access to the membership, stakeholders and events that the BCCD provides. We have increased our membership to ensure we have more people to cover all the various events BCCD provides, as we find each vertical gives us good insights and a fresh network.  And the Golf Days are great too! Thanks so much to Katy and the team. We've seen great progress and momentum at BCCD.  It's really important to support the Chamber and help members achieve their potential in the region, as well as promote how much we can do together with our UK colleagues and networks.

Since becoming a member of the BCCD earlier this year, I have attended numerous events with high quality content and decision maker level delegates. With the support of the business team and utilising the Business Advance benefits I can already confidently attribute new business through the membership. Marsh sees the BCCD as a useful communication channel, where we can share market insight reports throughout the year

As a small business owner, I am always looking to learn and get inspiration from other business leaders. Joining the BCCD was all about meeting people, learning from them and seeing how we can become a part of a bigger picture. Connecting with others is so powerful in the post-Covid era and BCCD are brilliant at providing the space to do that.

Their efforts have been instrumental in facilitating strategic introductions that have led to new business opportunities for me.

As a Founder of a boutique business, whilst there are many many highs, part of the corporate life I sometimes miss is the structured training and development that you have exposure to. I have attended many events through the British Chamber here in Dubai and in Singapore that offer brilliant masterclasses, workshops and business briefings so I still get to learn, grow and also network with like-minded professionals. It’s a win-win and I would definitely recommend it to fellow entrepreneurs.
