By Chris Sargisson, Chief Executive, Norfolk Chambers of Commerce

Soon now Norfolk Chamber will start a comprehensive program of transition and evolution, significantly changing to build on our firm foundations to become a stronger, louder, more helpful, more diverse more connected and modern business support group. Phew! We are on a mission to ‘Connecting, supporting and giving voice to every business in Norfolk’- we are reaching beyond our previous boundaries, striving forward, to ensure that we connect and give voice to all businesses, in Norfolk and beyond.

The change of name is important. We are a Chambers that engage the whole of Norfolk: from West Norfolk to North Norfolk; from Breckland to Broadland; from Great Yarmouth to South Norfolk; and the whole of Greater Norwich. We want to include everyone.

We’ll be introducing new ways of interacting with, and informing, you. Our digital platforms will be enhanced, and our new Customer Experience Team will be here to support you and your business.

You will see our new brand rolling out over our various media channels, with our big launch happening at The Royal Norfolk Show, this June.

And here, in this column, you will see a change that absolutely characterises the new Chambers. Because it will not be my voice. It will be yours.

Every member of Norfolk Chambers can contribute to this column. We want to use it to celebrate Norfolk’s success. Our wow factor.

You can be an individual, a big company, or a small business. You can be anywhere in Norfolk. You’ll be operating in one of these key sectors - Agricultural, Food and Drink; Charity & Social Enterprise; Construction & Development; Digital Creative & IT; Education & Training; Energy; Health & Wellbeing; Manufacturing & Engineering; Ports and Logistics; Professional Services; Public Sector; Visitor Economy, tourism & Retail.

Now, more than ever before, Chambers is about you - the members. Because it’s you who defines Norfolk, who fuels its growth and deliver its goods and services. It’s you who creates and innovates to make the county the success it is. Now, in a reinvigorated and even more communicative relationship let’s work together to share positive news about Norfolk.

So, if you’re a Chambers member, working in any of those areas, and you want to help celebrate the success of Norfolk this is your chance. Be part of this column.

We’ll collate your stories and input, and we’ll use this column to share them. From here on it will be your voices. Do it.
