What our members have to say

Kirsten O' Connor, CEO

QUEST

As a new entrepreneur, BCCJ Membership offers me invaluable opportunities to build business connections, find support, advice and inspiration. Small business leaders and global business titans cross paths regularly thanks to the varied events during the year. And I certainly enjoy the ready smiles and quick wit of the BCCJ team!

Stefan Woxstrom

Astra Zeneca KK

For AstraZeneca in Japan, working with and being supported by an external organisation is “extra special,” particularly by one as prestigious as the BCCJ.

Junko Kawakubo

Croda

BCCJ provides us with great opportunities to reinforce our UK profile in Japan, thanks to the provision of updated market information and introduction of new networks. Being a part of the Chamber also further enables us to provide effective and updated intel and support to our Japanese customers and business partners.

I've been a BCCJ member since April 2015, when I became Executive Director of British Market Council (BMC). Since then, I've very much enjoyed participating many BCCJ events, and sincerely hope to continue strengthening mutual collaboration between the BMC and the BCCJ.
