Haze Carver (AKA 'The Zinger')
Norfolk Chambers sets out to connect, support and give voice to its members and the wider business community – what is your role in this mission?
The whole Norfolk Chambers team are really proud to support and work with such a diverse range of incredible businesses across so many sectors – and with so many resources and advice available, my job is about finetuning that support!
As The Zinger in the team, how can you help businesses?
When you develop strong relationships with your members you work with them to create an effective, exciting and energetic membership that is tailored to their needs very quickly. It’s not always easy for businesses to focus on what support they need, let alone finding the time to get it when they’re busy building that business – that’s where I come in!
Your special power is the relationship builder – how do you help build relationships and why is this important?
I’m an energetic and inquisitive person and I love meeting people and finding out what makes them tick and what inspires them. Making connections comes naturally to me and I love the energy that our members have for their businesses. I am here to champion and share how incredible they are!
Your ‘Kryptonite’ is crossed eye cats and cheese – what happens to you when faced with these?
My 15 year old cross eyed cat is my world! I am never too busy for a desk cuddle or snuggle – so yes! Distracted beyond……….huh?
Oh, and you had me at cheese!
Your motto ‘Creativity Is Intelligence Having Fun’ – how to you incorporate this into what you do? How can businesses unlock their own creativity?
My creativity runs parallel to my energy! I’m always thinking, ‘ooh, let’s do this’ or ‘shall we try this?’ Being creative makes you brave, it forces you to look for new ideas and inspiration – we’ve all had a year of being braver than we ever thought possible and the way businesses have pivoted to adapt and survive is a testament to their creativity!
