Business is evolving all the time and we felt our online presence needed to do the same. Our new website is easier to navigate and much more user-friendly. We believe that this new site will enhance the membership experience and deliver the most up to date business information to all business.”
The new website design is clean, fresh and boasting a new level of user-friendly features. Members now have the ability to book and pay for events online, and view a list of all Chamber members in the online member directory.
Ruth Shann, Head of Operations, said: “We are excited about our new website and its functionality. When you bring a number of websites together and implement change it can be a challenge, but the results are fantastic. Giving members the opportunity to search for enhanced event information, book online and find all the latest business news and advice on one platform is amazing. This week we are launching our online webinars, this would not have been possible before and in these unprecedented times it’s great that we have something positive to share”
