ATLAS COPCO MFG.KOREA CO.LTD
Business Development Oil-free Air Division
As a Swedish company operating in Korea for more than thirty years, we have taken advantage of the various business networks, both foreign and local, to ensure we are fully informed on what is happening in the economic and political environment of the country. The BCCK offers us a unique opportunity to meet with senior UK politicians and company leaders through a series of informative workshops, presentations and site visits. With the support of the British Ambassador and his staff at the Embassy, close access is provided at the highest levels of government and industry.
Jones Lang LaSalle Limited
Head of Markets
Jones Lang LaSalle benefits from its membership of the British Chamber of Commerce in Korea in numerous ways. As a sponsor of the 2011 Christmas Lunch, we received excellent profile for our firm at a very professionally organised and thoroughly enjoyable event. The Chamber’s luncheons are always well-attended and informative sessions with plenty of opportunities for networking, while the BCCK membership directory is also useful for prospecting clients and showcasing our firm’s credentials. We have received direct business, and referrals, as a result of relationships facilitated within the BCCK and look forward to our continuing active involvement into the future.
Santa Fe Relocation Services Korea
Membership with the BCCK is an excellent platform to promote your company’s services not just to the British community, but also the international community of Seoul. We have also benefited greatly from the intelligence gained through the various insightful seminars to sponsoring the social events organized by the BCCK. I would certainly recommend membership to the BCCK for any organisation that has an interest in conducting business with the international community here in Korea.
SPIRAX SARCO KOREA LTD
Business Development Executive Project Manager
Spirax Sarco Korea values our relationship with the BCCK for many reasons. The BCCK provides access to a wealth of business and community clients who speak our language in the regional business community and abroad. The Chamber has also afforded me the opportunity to interface with business leaders and decision makers in a social and networking setting. This in effect is a fantastic prospecting tool to find new business and has provided Spirax Sarco with the exposure to local companies that it has needed to grow and expand over the years.
Although I have personally been a BCCK member only one year, it has clearly been a very worthwhile investment. The staff has always been very supportive to my business needs and the programs I attended were informative and professionally done. I especially look forward to growing this relationship over the coming years.
McLarens KOREA LTD
When I arrived in South Korea I was fortunate to discover that I had a distant relative based in Seoul who was able to provide me with an introduction to Korean foods, lifestyle and culture. However, he was working as a teacher and had limited connections with the business community. Therefore, I joined the BCCK which has opened the door to the contacts, the business meetings, the networking events and information that I was looking for. For me, the networking events in particular have provided the opportunity to meet other similar minded professionals with whom I have been able to share information about the general challenges of doing business in Korea.
Langdon & Seah
The BCCK has proven to be a great way for networking amongst not only members, but the wider business community in Seoul, and is a friendly and welcoming forum for exchanging observations and advice on doing business in Korea. Members also benefit from BCCK seminars and business meetings which provide up-to-date information and opinion on the current business climate. I would happily recommend membership to anyone interested in conducting business with Korea or to any Koreans interested in doing business overseas.
