The Shropshire Chamber relationships with our Patrons and Members is paramount, but don’t just take our word for it.
“We have enjoyed being Patrons of the Chamber for a number of years now. From Breakfast clubs, Expos and the Business Awards, all have provided a great deal of networking opportunities for us and it is great to be part of the Chamber and in turn the Shropshire business community.”
Peter Sims, Managing Director
“The Shropshire Chamber Team has been a real help in getting my business to the next level. I joined two years ago and was supported and encouraged in using the facilities available to members and also took advantage of the networking and training opportunities. I quickly recognised that I had to put some work into making the membership work for my company and that there was no point hoping that something would happen.
Over the last two years I have been able to work with a healthy number of new clients that I can link back directly to the Chamber, as well as creating new supplier and advisory contacts.
The variety of business information, activities and, most importantly, people I have been able to call upon has been exemplary.
I consider membership of the Shropshire Chamber to be an easy business decision to make.”

“The two main benefits and key drivers for us becoming a Member, were the many networking opportunities which have since enabled us to form some invaluable relationships with other local businesses and potentially some fantastic future partnerships. The other benefit, is the increased exposure we receive via trade publications.”
Charlotte Palmer-Hollinshead, Marketing Coordinator

“The awards were a great opportunity to showcase what we do to the wider business world, and the entire team here at Fabdec was thrilled to win the Best Manufacturer Award at the Shropshire Chamber Business Awards 2018. The positive awareness we have received since announcing our win has been fantastic.
Chris Powell, Managing Director
“The key driver for us becoming a member of the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce was the networking events that we would be involved in. The wide range of different events are a real bonus for us, as we can choose the events which fit around our other commitments. Our business relies on sponsors and we often find that other members and patrons of the Chamber are more than happy to get involved, either through sponsoring us directly or referring us to their own contacts. Without them we simply wouldn’t be able to continue creating such wonderful events for the people of Shropshire. The support we receive is fantastic and we wanted to be able to pay that back to other businesses in the county, and being a member allows us to do that.”
Beth Heath, Director
“We have been a Patron of the Shropshire Chamber of Commerce for just over a year now, and a Member for two further years, and the benefits have been invaluable. We not only attend a number of networking events, but we also host them, and the strong relationships we have subsequently built with local businesses has meant that we have been able to bring new sponsors on board. As a Patron, the monthly forum is instrumental in driving our business forward with the opportunity to give and receive feedback alongside other patrons.
Joining the Chamber has become an integral part of who we are in the community and the more we work with the Chamber, the more rewarding the membership becomes, it is a true partnership.”
Jon Gidney, Marketing Manager
“As a Member we benefit from a whole host of services to assist us in our continued growth and innovation, including having access to networking events and key calendar events across the year such as the Shropshire Business Awards. We connect with members to spearhead and encourage positive change across the region, benefiting not just the wider business community, but the social and economic landscape in Shropshire and beyond.”
