Here at Boxx, we're starting off this new year with a brand new membership to the locally well-renowned Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce.
As one of the fastest growing chambers in the UK alongside sister Northamptonshire Chamber, Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce is the 7th largest chamber nationally and has won numerous awards. Not bad considering they've only been going since 2013!
Our reasons for joining the Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce this year are plentiful…
In parallel with other chambers across the country, Chamber MK have successfully transitioned their networking meetings to be delivered virtually, so even with this long road of COVID restrictions ahead of us, until potentially Spring or beyond, the opportunity to meet with like-minded local businesses, whom we can learn from and share experiences with is going to be crucial. Whilst we are not all in the same boat, we are all riding the same storm and the term ‘stronger together’ is a sentiment we feel passionate about, as we all try to navigate these tricky COVID waters that are impacting businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Knowledge is Power
Similarly, the schedule of events and opportunities to learn via the chamber are abundant, despite the tight restrictions currently imposed. We can’t wait for our team to take advantage of these as well as put together a presentation of our own to share with fellow members. We strongly believe that there is something to be learnt from every person met, business engaged with or situation experienced and equally we are happy to help others learn from our expertise in order to grow.
Spread the Word
Never have we spent so much time online… With permanently full inboxes it can be tricky to keep up with the news and views of the masses. We consider having an eco-system of good quality, trusted resources of far greater benefit than a vast quantity of relatively unknown connections. The Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce brings likeminded businesses together… Their business directory will now be one of our go-to places and following their news feed and social platforms we know will bring quality content to our attention.
The UK is at a pivotal moment and with the Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce being party of the wider British Chambers of Commerce, who are leading the recovery of businesses from the impact of COVID, members have access to a plethora of advice and support. The UK economy needs to recover, businesses need to bounce back and build resilience and the support offered will aid us all in doing this throughout 2021 and beyond.
With all that said and whilst conscious of the hard work ahead, Team Boxx are raring to go this year and excited to meet our fellow new members and make 2021 a year to remember for more positive reasons!
