Making the Most of Membership
I have met some inspirational members and made some good friends. I have gained good contacts and customers
Alison Thompson - The Dental Barn
But I’ve never networked before…
We run quarterly events just for new members who have joined recently as an introduction to the Chamber and how we can make it work for you. You are not alone.
I don’t have time to network…
Our events happen throughout the day – be it morning, noon or night! So there’s always something happening.
Exposure for your Business
There are people at the Chamber to help push my business forward. It’s a little bit like having your own marketing department
Simon Bulteel - Cooden Tax Consulting
But I’ve never written a press article before and I don’t have time…
All we need is a hi-resolution photo of your news story or event. We can write the rest of the press article for you, free of charge, and get it in the magazines and regular e-shots.
Access to Influence
Being the largest town Chamber on the South Coast means that their opinion carries serious weight. Knowing they are onside helps when influencing the development for our area
Caroline Ansell - MP for Eastbourne
Are you looking to expand your business? Is there something affecting your growth? Do you know who to talk to? We do.
We hold regular meetings with local authorities and regional government.
We continue to lobby central Government on things that matter to businesses, including the A27, regeneration of the area and Gatwick Airport.
We also hold meetings with the Bank of England, reporting back on growth and the barriers to businesses in the area.
Training for your Business
Without them, I don’t think my business would be growing and developing like it is
Georgie Chambers - Photo Chambers
The courses you are running aren’t relevant to me!
So let us know what your needs are and we can arrange the training you want.
Why I'm a Member
"A chance meeting at a Chamber Christmas Lunch gave me the opportunity (as a graphic designer) to tender to rebrand a local company. I won the contract and we are both delighted with the end result"
