Event Report - New Member Breakfast 9 April 2019, International Chamber House, Melbourne

The Melbourne Office of the German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce was delighted to welcome several new members who have joined the Chamber over the past months to a working breakfast on 9 April 2019.

17 new members accepted our invitation and attended our New Member Breakfast at our premises at International Chamber House to hear about the Chamber’s services in more detail and enjoy a light breakfast.

The small networking group gave each member the chance to introduce their business, products and services to the other new members and make some valuable connections.

Tina Thoms, Membership Director and Melbourne Branch Manager, welcomed our guests and offered an interesting insight into the Chamber’s work, supplying detailed information about our publications, consulting services, and other membership benefits.

Tina then handed over to Julia Farley, Consultant Market Entry in the DEinternational department, who explained what services our Consulting team offers and how the Chamber can assist in setting up or expanding business, connecting companies with distributors and trade partners and give input on how to approach legal and tax related challenges.

Caroline Stapleton, Event Manager in Melbourne, then gave a short overview about the Chamber’s upcoming events and encouraged new members to get involved in upcoming events & workshops – be it as attendee, speaker, sponsor, or host.

The function concluded with networking over more coffee, tea and breakfast, offering a great opportunity to talk directly to the chamber staff and connect with other new members. We are happy to say that there were quite a few business cards exchanged this morning.

We look forward to a long lasting member relationship with our newest members and thank everyone for attending this breakfast event.
