This was attached to my internship final report for BritCham and was presented in November 2006
To get an opportunity to do my internship program in British Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia (BritCham), Jakarta is truly an immense time to gain a lot of new organizational knowledge and experiences. I’m very fortunate to be here as I am positioned in BritCham Events Department that is positively related to my major, Public Relations.
I want to also convey lofty gratitude to BritCham, especially Mr. Lukas Rahmidin, Business Manager of BritCham, for giving me this two-month internship opportunity and many other opportunities to learn a lot of things regarding working in an organizational environment whose core activity is facilitating trade and investment between Indonesia and Britain.
Although, I had been working with a small – in terms of organizational scale – but fast-growing – in terms of events organization frequencies – organization that is British Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia, but certainly I had wide opportunities to look closer at its very appropriate elevation and was also able to identify other foreign business chambers’ existence in Indonesia.
BritCham’s events precisely offered me broad horizon to see the sights of Public Relations from a very distinct point of view. Vast amount of events organized from Networkers Meeting – organized every Wednesday morning – to BritCham Business Networking – organized every last Wednesday of the month – obviously provided me with new practical substances of Mass Communications in advance.
I am very grateful to be part of the events department of British Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia and for the full supports and the high encouragements of all BritCham staffs during my internship time, especially Mr. Gary Andrews (Executive Director) and Mr. Lukas Rahmidin for “the fastest interview I have ever been before I started the internship and other staffs who have supported me a lot.
