The BCC has launched its campaign for No More Not Spots, to end not spots for voice coverage for UK phone users where they live, work, travel and play.
Chamber Network stars attend Buckingham Palace Garden Party
On Wednesday 29 May 2019, Chamber staff from across the network travelled to London to attend a Royal Garden Party. Each year, the British Chambers of Commerce has the opportunity to nominate a small number of people to represent the Accredited Chamber Network, thanks to Her Majesty the Queen who is the BCC’s royal patron.
This year, BCC asked for nominations in two categories. Firstly, the rising stars – the early career professionals who are achieving great things on behalf of their Chamber and members.
Secondly, we wanted to recognise those long-standing Chamber staff who have made a significant contribution to the Network's international trade services. Trade facilitation and trade support have always been a core part of the work of the Accredited Chambers Network. In recent years, this work has become more important than ever with staff going above and beyond to support members and customers during uncertain times.
Before the Garden Party, guests gathered at the BCC offices for some refreshments where Director General, Adam Marshall, said a few words of thanks for their contribution to the Chamber Network. They then headed off down the road to Buckingham Palace to join the other guests for the event itself. Although the weather wasn’t ideal, our guests all had a lovely time, with some even lucky enough to meet Her Majesty the Queen.
The guests chosen from across the network were:
Dan Cargill – Dundee and Angus Chamber
Abigail Robbins – Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber
Tom Colbeck – Hampshire Chamber
Charlotte Johns – North East England Chamber
Aliyah Perry-Warner – Sussex Chamber
Asa Buckley and Martina Slater – Doncaster Chamber
Scarlett Scott-Collins – Somerset Chamber
Louise Wall – Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber
Cathy Bryson – Glasgow Chamber
Jacqui Tulip - North East England Chamber
Sarah Woolley – Liverpool Chamber
Anne White – Thames Valley Chamber
Catherine Stephens – Business West
Dan Marsden-Knight – North East England Chamber
