Chamber Chat with Jo-ann Harney

I wrote my last Chamber Chat back in October 2020 and was hoping that by the time it was my turn to write it again we would all be back to face-to-face networking and events. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case and although things are looking like there might be a light at the end on the coronavirus tunnel, we are still being cautious at the Chamber and are still holding and planning all our events on line for the time being. 

We have however managed to organise in partnership with Affiniti Training and The Lothersdale Hotel, a COVID Safe First Aid at work and First Aid Refresher Courses, which are all run under strict COVID Government Guidelines; more information on the next two courses can be found on the Chamber Website.

The Chamber has also teamed up with Nutshell Training to bring you a Wellbeing and Mental Health during COVID-19 and Beyond Webinar. Tt has been designed to help employers and employees better understand behaviour patterns and coping mechanisms for Mental Health, information and booking details are also on the Chamber Website.

We are also pleased to present an International Trade Webinar designed to give attendees an update on the state of play since the UK left the EU on 31st January. The one-hour webinar is open to both Members and Non-Members and will give exporters, international service providers and those interested in accessing new markets overseas the opportunity to hear from key note speakers and have the chance to ask questions.

Finally, we would like to invite Members to a “Maximising Your Chamber Membership” event on 8th June, this will give you the opportunity to meet the Chamber Team, learn how to kick start your Membership, learn about the key services on offer and how to access our Chamber Event programme.
