“My time at the British & Chamber of Commerce was an experience I’ll never forget, as I got to rub shoulders with personnel in leading industries whilst gaining an insight into Anglo-Colombian trade. I was a part of the chamber during a crucial period, when H.E. President Juan Manuel Santos made the first ever state visit to the United Kingdom whilst simulations signing a host of trade agreements with the United Kingdom to further build and prosper relations between both nations. As an information services coordinator, I was the first point of call for all queries related to the chamber, from current members, to potential members wishing to join the chamber, as I was tasked with a wide array of functions such as monitoring and analysing daily economic news that were related to the chambers goals to preparing summaries of news articles for distribution via email to a wide-ranging audience that included members of the chamber, diplomats, members of the business community.  ”
