To stay competitive means you need good people, with the right skills who feel valued and appreciated – the Chamber can provide you with expert analysis of your current situation, connect you with fully- or partially-subsidised training or even introduce you to new talent.

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.
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.
The Chamber is proud to work in partnership with carefully-selected and universally-recognised regional brands – many of which have a national and international presence - and the largest employers across the counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.
