In the case of Corporate members, invitations at member rates are extended to any member of staff - so please feel free to spread the news widely within your companies - particularly to your up-and-coming young stars!



HEADLINER: Not to be missed

Our Headliners - including the annual British Business Awards and events led by world-class speakers, such as the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, Sir John Major, former Prime Minister of the UK, and the Governor of Tokyo, are “must-attends”, with high-profile guests and attendees that showcase and celebrate the very best of British. The British Business Awards will be held again this year in November. More information on the BBA can be found HERE.

At our Inside My Company events, CEOs and Regional Directors of member companies invite us to look at their organisations from the inside. Here, BCCJ members can analyse a company’s history, performance, ambitions and challenges, as well as share their own stories and strategies with the audience. Examples of Inside My Company speakers are Rob Grimshaw, Managing Director of the FT.com, Yoshiyuki Kasai, Chairman of Japan Rail (JR) Central, and CEO of TransferWise, Taavet Hinrikus.

TOOLBOX: Functional topics

Our "Toolbox" events are led by BCCJ member companies with services they wish to share more about, or issues they are keen to discuss with a group. This category is driven by functional topics - in, for example HR, recruitment, tax and branding - vital areas to address and master, helping member companies perform better in the Japan market. An example of a Toolbox event is "Small is Great", which creates an open platform for entrepreneurs and SMEs to build networks and leverage success stories.

Our popular "51 Nights" are held six times a year at high quality venues across Tokyo. Other highlights include Joint Chamber events, our bonenkai and shinnenkai, and golf days.
