Our services include business advice and support, an extensive business event programme to inform, inspire and to support our members in building strong long-term business relationships and International trade services.
A Clear Purpose
As the county Chamber we have many roles and responsibilities but with a clear purpose – to help businesses succeed and support the growth of a vibrant and successful economy in Dorset. We are a modern, 21st century Chamber dedicated to supporting the success of our members.
We do this in a number of ways. We provide a valuable platform for our members to come together to develop, connect, raise their profile and gain new business. We also have focus on providing learning, training and development opportunities and importantly share knowledge and learn. The development of skills in a rapidly developing global market is absolutely essential to the future growth of our economy. Our expertise in international trade and membership of the British Chambers of Commerce means we also provide a door to international markets.
A Powerful Voice For Your Business
We have an extremely important role in promoting and representing the interests of business in Dorset. We represent business, influence and help develop policy through local authority and government consultation, business surveys, policy campaigns and ministerial lobbying. We facilitate a powerful voice for business in Dorset. We also place great emphasis on working in partnership with key stakeholders such as local authorities, the Local Enterprise Partnership and other key business support organisations with the shared aim of supporting economic prosperity.
An Inclusive Chamber
We are an inclusive Chamber and at the heart of our values is our belief in community – developing and nurturing a business community that has a shared focus on business success, growth, collaboration and support.
We enjoy working with businesses across all sectors of all sizes. If you would like to find out more about how you could benefit through being a part of the Chamber network, please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we would love to talk to you.
