“I joined Future Link to network with my peers and help build a strong network with young professionals across the Black Country. We are all at similar points in our career and face the same challenges. The workshops are a valuable experience with some great insights and actions to assist with our personal and career growth.”

"Why did I join Future Link? Simple; with so much competition in the market, networking is an essential part of our business model and allows us to not only offer our services but to source new and exciting suppliers. The workshops are both modern and relevant and in just a few short weeks I have already taken on board key information that will remain with me during my professional career”

NEW NETWORKING CLUBS CREATE MORE WAYS FOR BUSINESS TO CONNECT
A SERIES OF BLACK COUNTRY NETWORKING CLUBS HAS LAUNCHED IN JUNE AS PART OF THE CHAMBER'S LATEST INITIATIVE.
Designed to enable businesses to make more meaningful connections, discover new opportunities and learn more about how they can help one another.
Spearheaded by the Black Country Chamber of Commerce and exclusive to its extensive network of members, the Clubs provide an ideal platform for the region’s professional community and businesses to share their stories, successes and highlight their brands, services and products.
Meetings are held on a fortnightly basis from 9:30am until 11am at Clubs in Dudley (Himley Country Hotel), Sandwell (National Metal Forming Centre), Walsall (Holiday Inn Express) and Wolverhampton (Ramada Park Hall Hotel). Businesses have the opportunity to join one Club in each of the areas of the Black Country or multiple Clubs for an additional joining fee.
The Clubs’ aims are focused around the quality of engagements between businesses with one business at each session getting the opportunity to deliver a ten-minute business briefing slot per year to advertise and highlight its work and services and other attendees had a sixty second slot at each session in which to share their latest news.
Karen Webb, Director of Business Services at the Chamber said, “The Chamber is passionate about helping businesses do business. We believe people buy from people and by launching our new networking clubs we are enabling our members to get to know one another, develop a rapport and for businesses to share their stories and generate a sustained awareness in their work and products.”
The exclusive nature of these Clubs means that only two organisations from each sector are eligible to join each Club and send one member of their team to each session.
Each Club is £200 + VAT for 12 months and there are strict guidelines in place around engagement in order for members to get the best value and experience from the initiative.
