This summer, the Chamber's Chinese Returnee UK Alumni Focus Group brings the UK Alumni Mixer Series back to the Chamber's office and invites Matt Knowles, Area Director East China at The British Council, to share his inspiring career experience and stories. He has 14 years of expertise in international cultural and educational exchanges.

At the mixer, Chamber alumni members will meet with likeminded friends from six alumni associations, including Cass Business School Shanghai Alumni Association, KCL Alumni Committee, The University of Bristol Shanghai Alumni Network, UAL Shanghai Alumni Association, UCL Alumni Shanghai Club, University of Reading and Henley Business School Alumni Association, China.

The mixer will be an amazing opportunity to meet and mingle. It is a fun way to develop your business network and build a range of contacts. It will be a great way to catch up with old friends while making some new ones.

Places are limited so please RSVP online as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Complete your personal profile with the UK University at which you studied, as well as your interests, so we can better introduce you to the alumni community.

We want to hear your experiences, tips and opinions on the opportunities, challenges and ways of working with businesses in China!
