Formed in 1837 the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce core objectives are – “to help strengthen the local economy by supporting our members in their business endeavours.”
With over 1400 members from micro businesses up to some of the very biggest and best in our region, it is a simple but effective platform for those in business who are looking for anything extra, Everybody associated have all been in the same situation as us at some point and they offer a range of experiences and advice to steer us all in the right direction.
So we have signed up!!
It has been mentioned many times before with business associates of ours, it has been highly recommended and until recently we have resisted the urge to sign up, with the usual excuses of “dont have the time, were not big enough, and… were doing alright as it is” Having decided to make a concerted effort to expand not only in size and profitability, we also wanted to expand in our business knowledge and also our contact list. Taking on new staff, new premises and a new look on professional life we decided to look into the chamber a bit more and saw a lot of positives that actually resonate with, and relate to little old us. We spoke to Bruce Massie the membership and business manager… which, to be fair is his job to get us signed up but he told us absolutely everything (warts and all) and answered any question we had. Confident it was the right thing to do at the right time for us… we are now officially members!
We invited Bruce to LRC headquarters to show him around, show him what we have, what we do, what we have planned and what we want to do… pretty sure we bored him and it sounded like a big ego trip that he will have experienced many times before but one thing we did take from it is the genuine lengths they go to for any business to help you gain more of what you want. This was just an initial meet and greet but we are extremely excited to use and abuse their services and to also offer anything we can to all those involved with in the chamber.
We feel it is well worth all other businesses getting in touch with them, but if you want to wait and see how we find it then either get in touch and ask us or keep a look out as we will be keeping you all up to date with the goings on!!
Keep tuned folks.
