2. Build your network
Connect, collaborate and network like never before. As an active chamber member, you can meet and build working relationships with an extensive range of business owners and leaders. When you expand your network, it can open a door to new business opportunities.
3. Learn as you go
Constantly learn from the experience of others, as others will learn from you. This ongoing exchange of knowledge is a valuable part of the chamber experience. Some chambers also offer short workshops covering areas like strategic networking, presentation skills, marketing, leadership and other topics that help SME owners to expand their knowledge.
4. Access the right expertise
Variety is the spice of life. At meetings and events, you could find yourself sitting next to an IP lawyer, marketing expert, healthcare specialist or IT guru. Ask your burning question and you may well leave with some valuable new insights that will contribute to improving your business.
With a broad selection of professional services represented, finding the right expertise when you need it is easy. Most chambers have a membership directory you can access, but you can also ask members you know for their recommendations.
