New Zealand Business Delegation Reception Event – 4 October 2018
Networking function at The Maslow, Sandton – 23 August 2018
The Chamber welcomed new and old participants to our regular drinks last Thursday at the Maslow. Nice, in particular, to see the team from the NZ High Commission, as well as Mike Morgan from the Canadian Chamber here in South Africa. As usual, delectable finger food and plenty of drinks provided a welcome refuge from the Sandton traffic.
A heads up: our next event will be a reception on 4 October for a visiting trade delegation from New Zealand headed by the NZ Associate Minister of Foreign Affairs and including business leaders from NZ. This will not only be great networking, but an exceptional opportunity to explore SA-Australasian trade and investment opportunities, so do please come along and hear from the Minister.
Networking function at The Maslow, Sandton – 21 June 2018
Michael Page was pleased to sponsor the monthly ABCSA networking drinks at the Maslow Hotel on 21 June and it was a great farewell for our ABCSA Vice-Chair Nathan Byrne. Nathan has been offered a position with Michael Page in the United States and we wish him all the best of luck. Nathan was one of the original ABCSA Board members and we thank him for his years of support of ABCSA. ABCSA was pleased to welcome at the networking drinks Carte Blanche journalist Derek Watts and South African explorer Riaan Manser, along with a number of Australian Government supported volunteers who are placed in various NGOs throughout Gauteng.
Networking function at Balalaika, Sandton – 17 May 2018
The chamber held its monthly networking drinks – third Thursday each month – on 17 May at the venerable Balalaika in Sandown – a quirky but pleasant venue. The Australian Trade Commission and Hogan Lovell were our kind sponsors this month, allowing us to regale the throng with a fine selection of drinks and tasty treats. While we are still establishing this regular event, it is already clear that there are some keen “regulars” – and what better way to unwind late in the month than with some convivial Australians and New Zealanders?
