BrokenStones have been member of the Chamber for a number of years now. Since I joined the business in 2017, I have been bowled over by the quality, number and variety of events put on by the Chamber. The Support before, during and after is brilliant, as is the quality and number of delegates at each event. There is absolutely no doubt that our business benefits from being a member of the Chamber, and would recommend joining to any business which is looking to attract new customers, improve their business processes, apply for grants, or simply just get some well-informed business advice.
‘As a new business only focussed on the East and West Midlands it was vital to us for us to fully immerse ourselves in the local business community. The Chamber has been fantastic in both their support of us as a business and in terms of some the tools available to you. Like all things, you get out what you put in and we have made the most out of our membership and attended many events – our Account Manager is proactive in keeping us up to date too.’
Last year, over 10,000 delegates attended a Chamber event in Greater Birmingham with events ranging from speaker breakfast events to business growth seminars and speed networking to large business awards dinners which attracted key business leaders and decision makers from across the region.
