When my business partner and I started Training 365 over two years ago one of the first things we did was to contact the Chamber. Having seen the advantages the Chamber can offer in terms of business support and networking opportunities we had no hesitation in becoming a member. As an active member, we have presented sessions at various events and most recently teamed up with them to form a dedicated Health & Safety networking group which has been well received by other members.
