HOW WE HELP YOU DO BUSINESS BETTER

1. Connect

We take making connections seriously. We can help grow your network contact by contact, relationship by relationship – so your business grows. We do it at your pace, introducing you to the people you need to meet. Don’t waste your time at meaningless networking events stuffed with sales pitches – let us guide you to making the right connections.

'The Chamber has provided a huge range of opportunities for us to get involved including event hosting, keynote speaking, sponsorships and exposure. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a membership and will be happy to speak with anyone considering joining'
Ollie Jackman
Taurus Clearer Communications

2. Grow

Your business deserves bespoke support for growth – high quality events, coaching, legal & HR support and a wealth of connections to aid your journey.

We also provide dedicated advice and qualified support from our International Trade team to help you reach new markets and will promote your business through our extensive communication channels.

'The Chamber has enabled us to engage with potential clients in particular in renewable energy and the Net Zero agenda. The team has enhanced our engagement with Plymouth University, in research and recruitment. Both are starting to show signs of benefit'
