Changing with the times: How your Norfolk Chambers is transforming
With over 125 years in business, Norfolk Chambers of Commerce places emphasis on supporting more Norfolk businesses by embracing digital communities.
As Norfolk’s largest business membership network, Norfolk Chambers of Commerce is aiming to give local businesses even more opportunities to connect, engage and collaborate.
With a mission of Connecting, Supporting and Giving Voice to Every Business in Norfolk, the non-profit organisation is turning up the volume on how and where businesses can get advice and support.
Norfolk Chambers has already launched two new exciting digital platforms – Norfolk’s Voice – a members only e-zine, and the first stage of Norfolk Knowledge Hub, a knowledge and skills sharing platform that is free to use for all.
The move to become a Digital Chamber has been a long time in the planning. Last year Norfolk Chambers introduced Vice Chairman of the Social Media Council at the DMA and director of award-winning digital marketing and social media experts SocialB, Lynsey Sweales, as its President. With over 16 years’ experience in digital marketing working with clients such as Google and Aston Martin, Lynsey brings in a wealth of experience to help encourage companies to embrace digital innovation and grow their business online.
There has also been a change to Norfolk Chambers’ senior management team. Nova Fairbank who was previously Head of Policy, Governance & Public Affairs has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer, and Paul Vincent, previously Financial Controller has been promoted to Chief Financial Officer.
Chris Sargisson, Chief Executive of Norfolk Chambers said: “This investment in change is part of the development and growth of the Norfolk Chambers of Commerce. As a Chamber we provide networking opportunities, share knowledge, offer business advice and support, signpost to business opportunities and inspire innovative thinking to enable companies to do better business. These new digital platforms and new roles within the Chambers will enable us to remain relevant and help support many more Norfolk businesses in their quest to get ready to grow.”
