Updated: Wednesday 8th January 2020
What an amazing year 2019 was! Since it's online launch in July literally thousands of new members have joined The Commonwealth Business Club from all over the world. We can now boast members in 78 countries worldwide. We have set a target of 20,000 members by the end of 2020 which we think is very realistic and achievable.
We have held 3 fantastic exhibitions in 2019:
The Festival of Enterprise at Birmingham NEC
The Better Business Expo at Derby Arena
Going Global Live Expo at London Excel
These exhibitions have served wonderfully to promote The Commonwealth Business Club not only to the UK business community, but also, through the associated media coverage it has helped to launch us as a global brand. We were unknown as a membership organisation 8 months ago... Now we are on the radar of major corporations, government organisations and High Commissions.
Sponsors & Partners:
In January 2020 we will finalise negotiations with some large organisations on a range of partnerships and sponsorship packages. We are eager to improve the service that we deliver to our members and to do that we need to bring in an income. Our core membership will always remain FREE and so we have put in place a working business strategy that will pay for the improvements.
Forthcoming Networking Events:
We have successfully negotiated the use of a fantastic London venue "1 Fleet Street" where we will hold regular business networking events. The 2 images above are the actual building. We will keep you all informed of the calendar of events via the weekly e-newsletter as they emerge.
We are also in discussions with a major British hotel chain for the use of conference and meetings facilities throughout the UK in 2020. There will also be a networking events strategy shared with our Regional Ambassadors around the world that will enable members to meet face to face on a regular basis.
In early January we will formally announce the appointment of at least 7 Regional Ambassadors:
The West Indies,
As well as a dedicated "Ambassador for Women in Business"
We are just finalising details of the support package for the Regional Ambassadors and will announce them publicly as soon as the is completed.
In 2020 we would like to encourage more members to make use of our exclusive online networking platform
"The Boardroom". It is a FREE business networking platform that enables members to promote their products and services worldwide, 24/7. There is a very simple registration that asks you to set your own username and password.
If you haven't already accessed The Boardroom just click on the image above and follow the online instructions. Once you have registered the membership team will activate your access and you are good to go networking!
Once again, we would like to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR wherever in the world you may be. We look forward to connecting with you again every week and wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2020!
