About Us

President’s Message

Dear Members,
We bid you a warm welcome to the Singapore Business Council!
With the addition of some new faces to the Executive Committee team at the recent AGM 2017, my new-look team and I are excited to continue to serve you from now into 2018 and beyond. We hope to provide a platform for your business development and networking needs, as well as to enhance your personal development via our learning events. Our aim is to Engage, Enrich and Enable our members.
In the coming year, we have planned for you an exciting stable of events, anchored by larger-than-ever-before ASEAN Business Councils Alliance events which will expand member networking opportunities across the other ASEAN business councils. This year, we will also look to partner up with other business councils such as the Chinese Business Council and South Korean Business Council to extend your networking reach – all of which are designed to Enable our members to explore new trade and business opportunities.
To allow SBC members to Enrich and develop themselves both professionally and personally, we will continue with our “staple” events such as the signature Knowledge Series events (in the form of seminars, forums and panel discussions), as well as a new initiative called the “Business Breakfast” where members can learn off subject matter experts on topics you are interested in – details to be announced soon! After all, we believe that learning is a lifelong process and nobody is too old to learn something new!
Last but not least, we want to hear more from you and we are constantly looking to Engage our members more actively, whether via our revamped website (www.sbcuae.org), member surveys, social media channels or casual events such as our classic sundowners. We encourage you to follow us on all our communication tools so that you do not miss out on our events. More importantly, we hope to hear your feedback on what you hope for us to do in order to serve you and the UAE-Singaporean business community better.
My team and I are wholly committed to realising our three-pronged promise to you. With your continuous support, we are very much looking forward to another ground-breaking year ahead. See you at our events!
Best regards,
Derick Ting
