Chamber Chat with Vicky Lofthouse - Make time for the simple things
Like most businesses in today’s economic climate, you will be working all hours to make sure the books balance and by the end of the financial year you will hopefully see some profit which could allow you to develop your business further.
You might consider updating your website, look at refreshing your marketing brand or other ways to promote your business further. Why not consider investing in networking and see what it can do for you and your business?
Most businesses value the opportunity to connect with others and the Chambers networking events helps facilitate the right environment to do so. This not only helps them to promote their products and services, it allows them to gain support, share ideas and build relationships which could result in that all important sale.
One of the biggest challenges businesses face however when it comes to attending networking events is time, cost and a ‘fear’ element. Some people actually find it quite difficult to talk to others and tend to shy away from ‘mingling’. Businesses are also very pushed for time and majority of people can only attend at certain times of the day and travel to certain locations.
Therefore, when it comes to planning events, the Chamber takes it very seriously the needs of its Members and continues to develop its annual calendar to bring a host of events to help businesses network to their full potential! Can your business afford to miss out on such opportunities?
