Don’t just take our word for it, see what existing members say about the Network Clubs:
‘It is hard to put into words or measure what the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce and the Oswestry Networking Breakfast Club have provided us with as a company or personally; especially, during the unusual year of 2020. Even though the majority of events have been held virtually this year the Oswestry Breakfast meeting has been an amazing uplifting experience. The club has a relaxed, friendly atmosphere where you will always find someone to help. It doesn’t matter if it is personal, business or as this year Covid related there will always be someone there for you. Through the Oswestry Breakfast Club we have gained invaluable advice, procured fantastic services and more importantly found friends. The rewards of membership are not immediate, sometimes not measurable, but we know that with effort and participation that the business and ourselves are in a stronger position than before we joined. Diane and Hazel, Thomas Consulting.
‘The Shropshire Chamber network is a great opportunity to build long term relationships with likeminded people. I have found it invaluable for finding out what is happening in other industries, supporting you in developing new and interesting ways of doing business. The network has also proved to be a great vehicle for showcasing our business. Picking up several leads from members, leading to some successful business development opportunities’. Colin Preece, SBC Training.
‘Shropshire Chamber of Commerce networking meetings have always been important to me. I do not tend to spend money on marketing campaigns as I realise that a lot of contracts are gained from building relationships. This is what the networking meetings are so successful at. I really missed my fortnightly meetings and I am glad to be attending again via Zoom!’ Katy Jones, PC Net Solutions Ltd
‘I have been a member of the Shrewsbury Network Club since I started the business in May 2018 and I can honestly say that businesses in the Network Clubs are really keen to support other local businesses; and want to see them succeed. I have received a lot of support since I joined and have made valuable connections which in turn have supported my own clients’. Niamh Kelly, The HR Dept.
