Read what our Members are saying

After taking the plunge to become self-employed, I was a little overwhelmed by the various offerings of help and support available to me. However becoming a member of the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce was undoubtedly one of the best moves I have made. In the first few months of membership I attended multiple networking events, benefitted from online training sessions and had access to tonnes of advice for small business owners, just like me. The communications I receive make me feel like a valued member, despite my small company size, and by being able to contribute to the Quarterly Economic Surveys, I know I’m helping to shape economic change. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Chamber of Commerce membership.

Holly Copson

Managing Director, Copson Social

As a Chamber member, I’d like to share the things I most value about membership. Success in business depends a great deal on working in collaboration with other business people; and that depends on networking. Chamber events (including the Chamber Expos ) offer one-man bands like mine the opportunity to meet leaders from large corporates as well as fellow S.M.E..s, an opportunity rarely offered at other networking events. I also value having a Chamber Account Manager assigned to my business whom I can contact whenever I want to bounce an idea off someone who is in position to advise me how to develop an idea into a success strategy. I’m glad I renewed my membership for another year

Barry Jackson

Managing Director, Aspire Technology

Indegu Ltd have been H&W Chamber members for three years now.  During that time, we have attended a wide variety of events which has given us the opportunity to network with a broad range of local businesses. This has facilitated the building of relationships with other Chamber members who have worked with us as subject experts while producing elearning content for projects, most recently for the Food Standards Agency.  It is also reassuring to have the backup of the legal team who have given us advice in a timely manner on a number of occasions when reviewing tender contracts.
