Carreras presenciales y a distancia:
“We embarked on a fact finding mission with Britcham in Chile in order to find potential distributors for our Great British dairy products.
We were not disappointed by the efforts of the team who have guided us step-by-step throughout the process, from documentation required, registration of suppliers and finding suitable distribution partners for our products in the Chilean market.
We feel we have gathered great knowledge of the Chilean market through their support and that we can always rely on them for information and guidance throughout the process.”
International Sales Manager, Coombe Castle.
“Working with the Chilean BritCham has been particularly useful in understanding and evaluating the market potential in Chile. It’s a cost effective way of exploring the market’s potential without committing too much investment or resource. Having a British link ‘in market’ gives you confidence to pursue opportunities more fully, knowing there is a support network behind the scenes if you need it”.
Jonathan Pratt, Head of Business Development, Yeo Valley Marketing
“Ser parte de Britcham ha sido y es un gran aporte para Deloitte. A lo largo de los años, hemos podido consolidar una relación basada en la colaboración mutua, compartiendo evidencia y documentos de interés recíprocamente; posicionando a nuestros profesionales como líderes de opinión en los diversos Comités temáticos y eventos de la Cámara; y conectando con otras empresas para generar oportunidades de negocio. Además, Christopher Lyon, Socio de Financial Advisory de la firma, se desempeña como director y tesorero de Britcham, pudiendo generar un impacto aún más significativo desde adentro”.

“I worked with Andres Barbe and Greg Holland through the British Chambers of Commerce during the autumn of 2021. I was having trouble with my current distributor in Chile, and needed some help in trying to mediate in a dispute. Greg offered to help by utilising Andrés’ knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills. The outcome was unsuccessful due to the distributor refusing to engage. He then suggested we try and contact alternative partners. As a result, Andrés helped secure a meeting with another distributor and we are currently working with him. In addition, Andrés contacted two people from the Chilean Ministry of Education with the aim of setting up a trial of our learning platform. This will hopefully go ahead this year. I found the BCC to be very helpful and proactive during the entire process and would be happy to recommend them to other SMEs.”

“AGD Systems have been keen to explore opportunities for growth of their above ground detection business in Chile for many years, and we therefore employed the services of the Chamber early in 2021 to help us follow up with the traffic control companies and local government bodies we had previously met during a valuable in-country visit to Chile in 2019.
We are confident that our world-wide detection solutions can benefit both pedestrian and vehicle safety and efficiency of movement in future local schemes in Chile.”
