In a little over a year, the Chamber has witnessed the transformation of Rachael Brennan’s business – Mrs Bead – who specialises in jewellery parties and workshops. What started with a simple question “how can I be more competitive?” has resulted in Rachael embracing a whole new world by sourcing suppliers overseas and importing her exclusive range of glass beads and accessories.

With a big smiley face I just wanted to let you know that, thanks to your words of advice last year, I did manage to import my first shipment. This will transform my business. I really do not think I would have had the courage or faith to follow these ideas through if it hadn’t been for our initial discussions and I want to send a big thank you to you and the team for your support! Things are happening!”
