How can I connect with the right people

Reaching and influencing the right person, whether it’s your industry sector peers, your local MP, a specific Government department or simply people who need what you do – the Chamber is an authoritative body which has the status and mandate to ensure your voice is heard by the right people.

How can I influence the right people

Whether your business currently operates overseas or not – the Chamber’s award-winning International Trade team can help enable businesses at all stages of the export journey - from start-ups to multinationals - to be successful in overseas markets.

How can I possibly profit more from international business?

 

 

We know that every business is different and that means different priorities, different pressure points, different aims and objectives and, of course, different budgets – the Chamber doesn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to membership. Our membership criteria is based on the size of your business, so the amount you pay to become a member is relative - minimising risk and maximising value.
