BCC Co-Executive Director Claire Walker comments on today’s speech from the Shadow Chancellor.
Our roots are local, but our reach is global.
We’re owned by, and work for, a network of Chambers of Commerce that champion and support our members all across the UK and in countries and markets around the world.
Our unique perspective gives us unparalleled insight into British business communities – every sector, every size, everywhere.
They trust us to be their advocates, and we’re passionate about helping them trade and grow.
Working together with Chambers, we drive change from the ground up – and our bottom line is helping companies, places and people achieve their potential.
From high-level introductions to prospects and industry leaders to networking with local contacts, the Chamber network can connect your business with the right people. Find your nearest Chamber to learn more.
From advice, support and export documentation to influencing business policy at home and abroad, Chambers of Commerce can open up a world of opportunity for your business.
The Global Business Network is a powerful and reliable B2B network that includes Accredited Chambers of Commerce in every UK town and city, all linked to British Chambers around the world.
From HR support and health insurance to special offers on a host of products and services from your fellow Chamber members, joining your Chamber gives you access to a range of exclusive discounted member benefits.
From annual showpieces like national conferences and business awards to more informal, local networking opportunities, Chamber membership gives you access to a regular, nationwide programme of business events.
From big national issues like Brexit, skills and infrastructure to local challenges like digital connectivity, the Chamber network can make sure your voice is heard across all levels of Government and in the media.
From strategic partnerships or sponsorship of major events to supporting activities at a local level, working with the BCC offers a host of opportunities to raise the profile of your business and get your message heard.
Young Chamber connects businesses to local education providers. It helps to bridge the gap between education and the workplace, highlighting the exciting and rewarding careers for young people.
