Our brand-new way of networking… 

Chamber Co.nnects are fortnightly network meetings for its members to network and chat with other businesses in a digital space. 

We believe networking is key during difficult times to help with mental health, continuation of business and access to help and advice from peers. Each network meeting will have a guest speaker and will be focusing on a current topic.  

Enjoy from the comfort of your own home with no early starts or commute and make sure to make a coffee and bring a smile to this online video meeting. 

Who's it for? 

Business owners, managers, entrepreneurs, start-ups, young businesses and anyone who wants to connect and engage with other businesses in the Norfolk area. 


Celebrating Norfolk Businesses: One Story at a Time

Hear from two inspirational Norfolk businesses who recognised that people were facing tough times during lockdown 1.0. R13 Recruitment started an initiative called Fee Free Friday, where they promoted a candidate using their networks and social media presence, inviting employers to contact them directly (for free) if they had available job opportunities. While Goodery was created as a response to the needs of their community when The Good Host began supporting NHS staff during COVID-19.
