Yesterday I had the chance to meet, along with the Chairman of Harlow Council Tony Hall, the Harlow Chamber of Commerce, in the form of Sean Quinney and Ian Hudson their Chairman and Vice Chairman.
The Harlow Chamber of Commerce went through a bit of a bad patch a few years ago, with a few people leaving at the same time, but under the leadership of these chaps they seem to be doing very well.
We talked about the networking events that they host, the new members that they were targeting and the networking work they were doing.
It was good to tell them about the Council’s changing view of business. Since taking over the Council the Conservative Administration have started promoting business in the District a lot more, including business for the first time in the Council’s corporate plan.
I have invited the Chamber to my next business breakfast and look forward to finding other ways to help and work with them in future.
