David Ingram, Headmaster, Dulwich College Shanghai Minhang,
is standing for the position of At-Large

I am the founding Headmaster of Dulwich College Shanghai Minhang.  Although relatively new to Shanghai, arriving in July 2016, I bring 17 years of leadership experience in Asia having worked Tanglin Trust School in Singapore, Kellett School in Hong Kong and Alice Smith School in Kuala Lumpur. I am also a keen Toastmaster.  I am an active member of BritCham, sitting on the CSR Committee in addition to supporting chamber events. A key motivation for putting myself forward for election to the executive committee is the opportunity to highlight the important work of the CSR committee.  Both my students and staff have been actively involved in BritCham CSR projects, such as Bright Eyes and Cerecare and I would like to promote a higher level of member engagement in this valuable area of Chamber life.

As a Headmaster with Dulwich College International, I am part of a successful organisation that was founded here in Shanghai and has been an intrinsic part of the British community since 2003.  We are equally proud of both our 400 year British heritage and our long term commitment to China.  As such, I believe I well placed to build positive relationships to and promote brand Britain.

Being a good listener is one of the most important parts of my role as Headmaster.  Listening to members would be a priority for me if elected.  I am interested to know your views on what the Chamber does well and what it could do better.  I am interested to know what you want for the Chamber.  Please contact me at david.ingram@dulwich-shanghaiminhang.cn with your comments, ideas and concerns.
