Business network for Irish-Australian returnees


The Irish Australian Chamber of Commerce is the kindred network, committed to adding value and bringing opportunities to its like-minded members. The chamber has chapters in both Ireland and Australia, which acts as a bridge between the two nations.

Through events, programs and initiatives, our chamber provides members a network of support and a platform to further business objectives. Importantly, it facilitates those wanting to collaborate with like-minded people and make the most effective connections.

One of the chambers programs is the Emerald Leadership Program which celebrates and supports our established and emerging Female Leaders.

It’s a female focused networking group with a structured program to provide peer based network and business support to our next generation of female leaders.

Members have the chance to hear from inspirational female speakers on a monthly basis, join a peer to peer facilitated program that will fast track their development through the shared experiences of the group. The program ends with a graduation dinner.


How you can take part

The first thing to do is join the Chamber – sounds simple and it really is! If you want to apply for an Emerald Leadership Program, you will need to be a member but if you just want to come along to our events, you may still do so as a guest. The events will be listed on our Events page.
