Sell-out for Spalding Chamber Networking Event highlights passion & optimism amongst local businesses.
Spalding and District Chamber of Commerce organised a very successful Networking evening recently which was kindly sponsored by Bulley Davey, Accountants and supported by Drive by Websites.
The event was a sell-out with 40 local businesses represented, each using the opportunity to share with other like minded individuals details of their business and why others should consider doing business with them. The evening started with a superb supper provided by Joe at the Spalding Club in Broad Street and then after a brief introduction all delegates had the opportunity to speak to the group.
Phil Scarlett, President of Spalding and District Chamber of Commerce said: “This was a great evening which was well received by local businesses and it was the first event that I have been involved with, where every single delegate that registered attended”. At the end of the evening, Mr Scarlett complemented the delegates on their professional presentations and their passion for their business and remarked “that it made him feel really proud to be associated with the businesses in South Holland”.
Kay Weijers from Kayandco coaching specialists thanked the Chamber for putting on such a splendid networking event – and said ” it was such a treat to attend a networking event that had such a buzz and eclecticism! The hosting was brilliant and the hospitality so very well received by all”.
