Susheela Rivers
Office Managing Partner, DLA Piper

As a law firm, our business is ultimately a human one, and personal relationships and networks are key to our success. Being a member of BritCham has given me and my colleagues the opportunity to meet with some of the most influential people within the international business community in Hong Kong. I believe in Hong Kong and it is great to be a member of a community that is passionate about shaping the future of the city.


Mary Simpson
Head of Member Engagement, Hong Kong, ICAEW

ICAEW’s membership in the Chamber has been invaluable. Over the past two years, we have found BritCham’s range of events extensive, relevant, and on-trend, even offering CPD learning for our members. We consider the Chamber to be one of our key partners and instrumental to growing engagement with our members.


Jim Taylor
Senior Director – Planning & Development, CLP Power

As a BritCham member, I appreciate the strong reputation we have with Government and others for our policy advocacy work, whether looking at opportunities in the GBA or in our home market, Hong Kong.

Jonathan Cummings
President, APAC, Landor & Fitch, Hong Kong

I joined the Chamber soon after arriving in Hong Kong to establish an Asia presence for my London based brand consultancy. Throughout the intervening 13 years, I have found the knowledge and insight from the Chamber’s programmes of huge value. But by far the most valuable aspect has been being part of a community of international business leaders who are more than happy to support each other when, and however needed.

Kathryn Weaver
Partner, Head of Employment Law, Head of the Hong Kong Office, Lewis Silkin

The Chamber forms a hugely important part of my Hong Kong life. Through the Chamber, I have met innumerable friends and contacts – people who have really shaped my Hong Kong experience, both professionally and personally. The support and camaraderie I have experienced from fellow business leaders in the Chamber is second to none. I have also had fantastic opportunities to network and build my and my firm’s profile through events, speaking invitations and committee membership.  Perhaps most importantly, I think the Chamber does an excellent job on advocating for the interests of business in Hong Kong and on bringing important topics to our attention through its impressive seminars and panel talks.

Robin Lister
Founding Headmaster, Malvern College Hong Kong

At a time when COVID-19 has been such a challenge in Hong Kong and around the world, BritCham has provided not only support and encouragement, but also an invaluable tool of communication with like-minded colleagues.

Hanif Kanji
Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Sinophi Healthcare

Like most things in life – what you put into something is proportional to what you get out of it. At BritCham I’ve found that the “return on time/effort invested” is among the highest for my “extracurricular” activities – from the perspective of what I learn, whom I meet and the societal impact of what we do. It’s fun too!!

Kirti Lad
Executive Director of Meraki Executive Search & Consulting

Being a BritCham and active committee member has so many upsides from the incredible community, networks, learning opportunities through inspirational speakers, advocacy through the committee work as well as making life long friends. It’s a hugely rewarding organisation to be a part of and even during these COVID times, the Chamber has added so much value to my daily interactions.

John Dawson
Founder & CEO, Acara Strategy

Joining the BritCham community, and the Marketing & Communications Committee, has far exceeded my expectations. It has been inspiring to witness, first-hand, the energy, dedication and team spirit injected into every Committee meeting. As a business owner, the BritCham ecosystem provides invaluable support and advice, particularly with regard to the positive narrative on Hong Kong's future and the opportunities that lie ahead with the Greater Bay Area. BritCham's white papers and GBA seminars are unrivalled. Signing up has been a no-brainer.
