Sundowners is AustCham Thailand's monthly business networking function. It is a great opportunity for members and guests of the Chamber to meet, network and exchange views in a social environment.

We would kindly ask guests to show their respect by remaining quiet during sponsors' speeches - these typically last no more than five minutes and Sundowners wouldn't happen without our sponsors.

AustCham wishes to thank its sponsors for their support.

The Beaumont Partnership Foundation

The Beaumont Ruam Pattana School in Chaiyaphum was conceived as a means of re-dressing some of the inequalities in educational opportunities between Bangkok and the rest of Thailand. The Beaumont Partnership has been in business here for over the 23 years. Over that period of time the continuing drift of young people from rural areas to urban centres has remained clearly apparent. Typically the reason for this drift is the search for an improved standard of living for themselves and their families.

A recognition that the opportunity to improve standards of living is largely driven by access to education drove The Beaumont Partnership to establish the TBP Foundation with a focus on establishing a school in Chaiyaphum province. In some way this is intended as a means of giving back to the community that has supported the company over many years. With the assistance of its extended network of fellow consultants, building suppliers, developers and generous individuals, the initial phase of the school is due to open in May this year.

Continuing economic sustainability is one of the fundamental principles embraced by the school’s board. On that basis the intention is that income derived from a construction industry focussed business park, a hospitality college and an organic farm, situated on land close to the school, will eventually provide for the ongoing financial needs of the school. It is anticipated that the establishment of this support base will take between 5 -6 years, and in the interim financial support is sought from the broader community.
