“What is this all about?” you’ll be thinking.
It’s about interaction and engagement between us, Your Chamber, and you, our members.
I’m going to give you a quick overview of the fantastic work that we at Glasgow Chamber do and the many ways in which we can support and add value to your business.
You are the reason why we exist! We work hard to make things happen and see our city flourish! Simply put, we are here to support our members and champion Glasgow. We do this by:
The above falls within the Chamber’s member services activity which is only a fraction of what we do! To keep it simple, your Chamber does work across 4 different areas and provides leadership on issues important to business to advance sustainable economic growth and a better Glasgow for all those who live, work and play in our city and region.
Besides member services, we deliver two Projects that prosper our city, actively promote International development for our local businesses and actively lead on issues that affect our city through our Policy work, as follows:
Glasgow is a city of innovation and our Projects are a living example of this –
Our international activity has seen us creating connections for our members in places like Milan and New York and soon Bavaria , and producing over 5.000 export documentation this year alone! Whether you are a small business wanting to take it to the next level, or an established organisation looking to open new markets, Your Chamber is here to support you with your ambitions and talk you through the steps for success in international markets, more info here.
Our Policy team undertakes campaigning activities with the specific focus of achieving positive change for the city and wider city region and delivering value to you, our members. We participate in, or lead on, a wide range of business led groups including the Glasgow Economic Leadership Board, City Centre Retail Association, Commercial Property Forum, 2018 Prosperous and International Group and the Glasgow Employer Board, all of which include representation at the most senior level across different disciplines. More info here.
We connect local businesses with business experts, influencers and policy makers through membership; we work to make our city and surrounding area a better place to do business; we help companies trade globally; we offer local business communities a strong and resolute voice.
As you can see there is an array of opportunities available to you, our members, to help you improve your competitive advantage and see your businesses succeed. View our short Chamber video #ConnectForGrowth to see some of the work we are doing in and for the city.
