Membership

The SBC is one of the most active business councils in the UAE – we are committed in holding events on a monthly basis and inviting influential speakers to discuss on current and relevant topics.

Many of these events are held in association with our esteemed corporate members and other reputable organizations such as Insead, Harvard, Singapore Management University and the Chinese Business Council. Notable past speakers include H.E. Shabbir Hassanbhai, Singapore’s High Commissioner to Nigeria and Chairman of the Africa Business Group; Gavin Wishart, CEO of Standard Chartered Iraq; Mohammad Rashid Lootah, franchise owner of Singapore’s Yakun Coffee and Toast in the UAE; Professor Arnoud De Meyer, President of the Singapore Management University; Amit Dhamani, CEO of Dhamani Jewelers; Waleed Hajj, franchise owner of Seattle’s Best Coffee and Cinnabon in the UAE and Nikolas Bruylants, Founder of Citruss TV.

Through our activities, we hope to assist members in expanding his/her professional contact list, leveraging contacts to make business happen and gaining knowledge from the invited subject-matter-experts.

We look forward to welcoming you as part of the Singapore Business Council.
