"As a new member to the Chamber I was a bit anxious in attending my first networking event. I needed have been, everyone was so friendly and as a result of my attendance, I gained a new client. The chamber is a strong advocate of trying to put its members in touch with each other and when a member was looking for a new bookkeeper, the chamber staff worked their magic and put us in touch."

“I wanted to feedback to you how much I appreciate the support yourself, George and Dorothy have given me since I launched my new business. I have received great feedback from the presentation I did at the Chamber Business Breakfast and am delighted to report that I have already picked up some new work through it. I have also received enquiries as a result of the launch article in Business Connect. I have been made to feel very welcome indeed as a new member of the Chamber and know that joining the Chamber is one of the best decisions I have made for my business so far.”

“Today at Dryden Aqua was excellent. The presentation from Howard was a good example of how to present – informative and enthusiastic and professional. Also with real knowledge of his subject that came across loud and clear. Helped a lot because, as George said, we didn’t even know of it. Just the sort of event that makes membership valuable.”
