President’s Message

Dear Members,

A warm welcome to the Singapore Business Council!

With the appointment of a new-look Executive Committee at the recent AGM 2017, my 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 all SBC members.

In the coming year, we have initiated a number of novel initiatives, chief of which is the ASEAN Business Councils Alliance which would expand member networking opportunities across a number of other ASEAN business councils, as well as allowing SBC members the chance to enjoy a wider range of benefits which are shared across participating business councils. We hope that this bold initiative will Enable our members in exploring new trade and business opportunities with our ASEAN neighbours.

We will also look to continue our signature Knowledge Series events via seminars, forums and panel discussions, which will allow SBC members to Enrich and develop themselves both professionally and personally. 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 satisfaction 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 a trail-blazing year ahead.

Best regards,
Derick Ting
President
