The BMCC wishes to convey our deepest condolences to all those who have suffered great loss and left devastated by last week's tragic acts of violence in the city of Manchester. It is the BMCC's sincerest hope that our members, friends and families both here in Malaysia and in the UK are safe and well. May we all come together during this challenging time as one. At the BMCC's 13th Annual Charity Rugby Dinner last Wednesday, more than 300 in attendance observed a solemn minute of silence, marking the effect this saddening incident has affected us all throughout the world. Our thoughts and prayers remain with all those affected. 
All these months' anticipation has come to a triumphant end as the BMCC's Annual Charity Rugby Dinner delivers yet another memorable night for the 13th year. 317 attendees filled up the glittering Grand Ballroom of Shangri-La KL, draped in the unmistakable red and white colours of title sponsor HSBC. 

In between a well prepared 3 course meal, Justin Marshall, Peter Winterbottom and Fergus Slattery took turns to the stage to share some of their most outstanding, hilarious and unforgettable experiences during their professional playing years. 

Thanks to Justin Sambo, there was never a doubt that the Live Auction would be a dull affair; along with Heads & Tails and the Raffles fundraising efforts, the crowd dug deep into their hearts and wallets to contribute towards the National Cancer Society of Malaysia. 

The BMCC wishes to thank once more all the sponsors involved in making this dinner a success: HSBC, British Airways, Vision Four, Guinness, Expatriate Lifestyle, and of course, Shangri-La KL. 
More than 50 rugby-enthusiastic students got a taste of what it takes to be a professional rugby player as they enjoyed an thrilling Rugby Coaching Clinic led by three rugby legends from England, Ireland, and New Zealand.

Hosted at The Alice Smith School Kuala Lumpur for the second time round, and held in conjunction with KL Saracens, SM Sains Selangor, Victoria Institution, Cobra RC and KL Tigers, the Clinic is part of the Annual Charity Rugby Dinner Event organised by the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC).

The juniors, ranging from ages 6 to 13, were given a masterclass on tackling and passing under the trained eyes of Fergus Slattery, Peter Winterbottom and Justin Marshall. And while the juniors took it all rather seriously, there were plenty of laughters to be shared as well. Massive cheer and thanks to the Alice Smith School for being the Rugby Coaching Clinic Venue Sponsor once again, and for its overall support to the BMCC's Dinner.

You Cannot Outsource Responsibility For The Customer Experience
My last article referred to the United Airlines incident, where a passenger was forcibly removed from a plane. This created brand damage for the airline. The article referred to the importance of employees feeling empowered to override rules in favour of purpose, values and common sense.

This article is not about the performance of the Aviation Police. As far as these officers were concerned, they were doing what they were being paid to do. However, it does draw out another major lesson from this case. 


Snap General Election reminds investors to diversify 

The political campaign trails are in full swing, ahead of the General Election which Theresa May unexpectedly announced on 18 April 2017. The key word here is ‘unexpectedly’; markets do not like surprises. So, how will the General Election affect the value of property investors’ portfolios, and how can they mitigate against risk in light of political uncertainty?
