“Norfolk Chamber of Commerce has really helped us build new relationships in the local business community. Our brand is more prominent, our name is more recognised and it has facilitated Chamber Energy, which is an initiative to work with chamber members to help them make better decisions when it comes to their energy”

We have used the Chamber website as one of our main PR channels. Most of the time, you’re never sure whether PR is working. However, recently a new client mentioned that they had read about Greenwood&Bell on the chamber site a couple of days before they gave us a call. I... Read More

It is so important to meet people face to face and the chamber has allowed us to do that. Also, we have used the HR toolkit, which has helped us get our policies right.”

There is a good range of networking events to suit all types of businesses and all styles of networking. Whether that’s... Read More
