Networking Event 8 November 2022

On the 8th of November 2022, ABCSA members gathered at the stunning offices of Flight Centre for our annual End of Year event, which was kindly sponsored by Flight Centre.  Members from the Australian High Commission as well as H.E. Ms. Gita Kamath were kind enough to join us to raise a glass in the good cause of South Africa-Australasian trade relations and to bid farewell to Ms. Gita herself and thank her for all the hard work that she has done. It was an incredible evening with two past chairmen present, Mr Chris Hamilton and Mr Shane Hunter, as well as the incoming chair Mr Shaun Mills present. What was always a strong sentiment during my tenure is that ABCSA is a family – a community of South Africans and Australians. Our last networking session for 2022 provided our members and friends opportunity to connect with each other. We know that in this chaordic world, among the most common sentiments expressed is a longing for community— the feeling of belonging to a group with a purpose that invites and inspires the person to contribute meaningful work.  Have a safe and blessed Festive season and well deserved break.
