PROSPER MAGAZINE: DIGITAL EDITION
NETWORK – NETWORK – NETWORK
Despite these extraordinary times, the Black Country Chamber of Commerce continues to run all of their networking opportunities for businesses and individuals to connect and rebuild.
Each event offers a potential networking opportunity, and despite the obvious difficulties, each core networking event has continued, albeit digitally via Zoom.
Traditional Business Clubs
Sandwell, Walsall, Dudley and Wolverhampton offer their own individual business networking clubs. These provide traditional ‘business club’ networking - elevator pitches, issue busting forums and business spotlight feature with regular fortnightly attendees coming together to exchange ideas and solutions, and of course, to refer business and network contacts.
TWW – THIRD WEEK WEDNESDAY
Each third week Wednesday, Chamber members, and non-members meet for their FREE monthly networking session.
Continuing to run digitally, the event gives dozens of businesses the opportunity to connect and encourages delegates to use their own social media channels to reach out and share their business message.
Headed up by Chamber membership adviser, Richard Brooks, live streaming business interviews, in between the open networking sessions, offers a chance to project your business message out to the many thousands who follow via the Chamber’s social media platforms.
Each session is engineered to take up to 100 delegates and is set up for 50 break-out rooms, giving quick 5-10 minute one to ones or small group open networking opportunities.
Short business interviews take place in between these sessions which offer a fun and pacey way to put you in front of lots of businesses, all within the hour window.
