Virtual Welcome Event Held for New Members on 13th May

On 13th May, we were thrilled to host our first online welcome event for new members, our new members represented a diverse range of sectors, from Retail, Financial & Professional to Advanced Engineering and the Creative Industries.
 
Opening the event, CBBC Executive Director Adriaan Commandeur stressed in his welcoming remarks that this event was designed to give our attendees a means to learn more about CBBC and our membership benefits on offer.
 
He also emphasised that CBBC is well equipped to support members on their China journey, as well as provide them a platform from which to express their ideas and goals in China. 
 
To complement this he introduced Joy Isaacs as our guest speaker; a long standing CBBC member, as well as a member of the CBBC board. 
 
Joy gave valuable insights into her vision of the China market, acknowledging that there can be challenges but through CBBC, and in particular CBBC's Launchpad service, her company was able to navigate these challenges and even find new opportunities in China.
 
A resounding sentiment was felt that collaboration and networking was an overarching goal to be reached as a result of CBBC membership. Each new member had a speaking slot to expand upon this, as well as highlight what stage they are currently in on their China journey.
 
The session was wrapped up with an interactive discussion along with CBBC's membership team highlighting CBBC's member exclusive events series, and a range of other UK networking opportunities. Thanks were then exchanged and many felt this was a worthwhile session to provide visibility of CBBC and our members in the midst of the limitations caused by COVID-19.
