Networking & Events

Networking is key to promoting your business. We offer the opportunity to develop your personal connections while learning about topics important to your business.



The Chamber runs a comprehensive series of around 100 events each year, with something to suit everyone from business breakfasts to lunch 'n' learns, Shire Connections to On Leadership dinners.

“The We Mean Business series of events have been fantastic. I have found the speakers very engaging, knowledgeable in their field and the topics really interesting. As a GenX, I found the lunch featuring generational diversity very thought provoking. Working in an environment of varying generations, it did make me sit back and think how others work and how I maybe need to be more mindful. I naturally adapt to different clients and their situation, however, wonder if I do the same with my colleagues?”

Networking is key to promoting your business, and our City Connections and speed networking events provide the perfect platform. The structured sessions maximise the number of connections you can make in a short space of time.

“As it was my first Speed Networking event I was concerned that it wouldn’t be for me and of any benefit – I was completely wrong! I felt the event couldn’t have been better for my first – the staff were very welcoming and the place was buzzing. I have now made some really good key contacts, some of which are very useful for my career but also socially as well. I will definitely be attending this event again and 100% recommending to anyone who is sceptical or considering.”

"The Chamber events team ... worked with us on a highly successful 'launching into Brazil' event that attracted over 70 people.

"Indeed, it went so well it prompted us to organise a follow-up shortly afterwards.

"The manner in which the events were both planned and executed was faultless and helped us build our profile across both Chamber members and the wider business community."
