Our brand-new way of networking… 

Chamber Co.nnects are network meetings for its members to network and chat with other businesses in a digital space. 

We believe networking is key during difficult times to help with mental health, continuation of business and access to help and advice from peers. Each network meeting will have a guest speaker and will be focusing on a current topic.  

Enjoy from the comfort of your own home with no early starts or commute and make sure to make a coffee and bring a smile to this online video meeting. 

Who's it for? 

Business owners, managers, entrepreneurs, start-ups, young businesses and anyone who wants to connect and engage with other businesses in the Norfolk area. 

Topic  

Preserving Company Culture During COVID-19

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and with many of us working from home, company culture for many organisations is being tested. Although we are starting to adapt to new ways of working and communicating remotely it doesn’t mean company culture needs fall by the wayside. Concentrate on building a culture which embraces change, recognises the new challenges facing employees and encourages them to do things differently to support the current shifts and drive productivity.

The culture they have at Indigo Swan is one of individuality and positivity – something they are very proud of. Since the start of the lockdown, Indigo Swan knew how important it was to make sure they found new methods to support, encourage and motivate each other.

During this session, James Groves, Managing Director of Indigo Swan, will cover some of the ways they have been preserving their company culture, a few of the challenges they have faced and what it might look like on the other side.
