Management Development

The BCCT Management Development Group (MDG) was established for the first time in 2010 at the initiative/suggestion of BCCT Events Group Meeting. Board Director Richard Greaves (Hyatt Erawan Hotel) became the first Chairman and assisted by Ian Thornhill (KPMG) as Vice- Chair.  Founding members include Buphawadee Owararin (Standard Charter bank), Sukhavichai Dhanasundara (Brainforce International) and Joe Barker-Bennett (JMBB Consulting). MDG continues today with Sukhavichai, Honorary Adviser to the Board as Chair, and Director Chris Thatcher as member along with Rungjit Jarernponganarn and Greg Watkins (Executive Director) taking a more active role in organizing programs.

Key objectives of the group have been to provide management development for member company employees, particularly the SME’s who would benefit from participation in programmes where they can join as opposed to run directly themselves. The focus of the training programmes has been on “soft skills” development based upon an established list of core competencies, such as Presentation Skills, Coaching and Leadership Skills, Cross-Cultural Management and Negotiation Skills.

BCCT provides half-day, one-day and two-day workshops for members and non-members. The training is conducted in both English and Thai. Class sizes are from 10 to 30 participants and held in a hotel location as well as British Business Centre (BBC). Prices have been around THB 2,000 – 2,500 for a half-day workshop, THB 7,500 – 8,500 for a one-day workshop and THB 10,500 – 12,500 for a two-day workshop. Some half-day workshops are also offered free entry sponsored by BCCT member companies.

This year (2017) the training programs in Thai and English have been and are planned to be as follows:
