  • This type of booking can be made by only one employee of AustCham Member. If you want to register more guests from same company please select "Multiple registrations from the same member company"
  • While our strong preference is that each employee of an AustCham member company create their own log-in to book for events, we recognise there are events such Sundowners where one company may wish to place a single booking for multiple employees.

AustCham Thailand and Australian Alumni invite members to attend a briefing focused on upskilling the English language in the workplace.  

A key objective of Thailand as both the ASEAN Chair and in preparation for Industry 4.0 is the English language capabilities of the workforce and a lack of practical English skills for communication has been a topic of discussion for many years in the business community.  

Join us to hear from long-time Thailand resident, author, media personality, and importantly, advocate for improving English communication in his adopted country, Andrew Biggs, as he presents ideas on how everyone – employers and employees alike – can take responsibility for improving communication in the workplace.
