 Collaborative Advantage
"If you choose the right purpose, then certain people will be attracted by that.
They will be motivated and unified. ..The process fills in the open spaces.
But strong purpose ties it together. "  

Robert Wong Executive Creative Director of Google Creative Lab.*

 
The forthcoming business environment will see companies focused towards their competitive advantage.  This may include transforming their business model, mastering the basics again, reviewing their culture and human capital or developing as Harvard Business Review (HBR) refers to as a  'collaborative advantage'.

At HCC we frequently see the collaboration advantage occur between member to member whether that be between members in property and law services or with members in finance and investment, our network's strength lies in our members' focus to forge and foster strong relationships with other members.  

At our upcoming Christmas networking event, when meeting other members, consider our networking system and the potential possibilities towards your collaborative advantage and how your business can create'new value' rather than just exchange services.  Read more HERE

Why do you think the Haymarket Chamber attracts so many members?  The events are a great chance to network with others who are leaders in their field. It is easy to hear about the issues in your own industry but the HCC gives you a chance to network with leaders of other industries who are also working towards the prosperity of this area of the world.

Favourite place in Chinatown?  My niece and nephew came on the treasure hunt through the Chinese gardens and they loved it. We also enjoyed an N2 icecream.
 
Any advice to other businesses?  In a global economy translation is worthwhile. People really appreciate it when you make the effort to speak to them in their language.
 
What is one of your favourite quote?
"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart"  Nelson Mandela
