Chance encounter forms collaboration between Chamber members

A chance encounter has formed a collaboration between Chamber members The Little Survey Company (TLSC) and Free Your Ostrich Ltd (FYO).

TLSC director Anna Johnstone and FYO creative director Gemma-Louise King met during an introductory networking session for new members, hosted by the Chamber's membership team.

With Anna looking for some business development, marketing and PR support, and Gemma keen to extend her consultancy to new customers, the opportunity arose to work with one another. Several months down the line, their project is going from strength to strength.

Anna said: “At my very first Chamber event, I happened to mention our ambitions to grow The Little Survey Company and how we were struggling with marketing. Gemma introduced herself and Free Your Ostrich, and we went from there. We have now been working together for a number of months and Free Your Ostrich has made a huge impact on our business.

“I have made some great connections through the East Midlands Chamber and look forward to meeting more members in the future.”

Gemma added: “When I joined the Chamber, I was keen to attend some networking and widen my client base, but I certainly never expected to do so on the very first day! I’m lucky to have built a great rapport with Anna and I'm enjoying being a part of The Little Survey Company’s growth journey.

"I’m fortunate that I love what I do and keen to share my knowledge with businesses in any sector, particularly business start-ups and SMEs looking at long term growth. The Chamber provides such a great platform for introductions and encouraging businesses to help one another.”
