Over the three years, as both an at-large committee member and vice chair, I have been passionately involved with the Chamber including the Education Forum, the Position Paper, the Young Professionals Development Programme, organising events (including the SME Accelerator), attending and supporting other events and initiatives and working closely with the executive board and secretariat to ensure the long-term growth and success of the Chamber. If I am re-elected to the Vice Chair role, I will continue to work in these areas but also drive forward three important initiatives:
- Employability and employment are key themes for British universities, member companies and the Chinese government and I look forward to leading the chamber in these areas.
- After six incredibly difficult months, member companies, especially SMEs, need revenue and support. I will do everything I can to support their survival, growth and sustainability.
- Developing annual events, programmes and campaigns will create a chamber with a strong organisational memory and systems that can outlast any individual board member. I look forward to being an integral part of this process during the next two years.
Thank you for your support and I hope to work with you in future.
