Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce are delighted to announce that we are one of five UK Chambers to be shortlisted for the Chamber of the Year Award.
The Chamber of the Year Award is issued by the British Chamber of Commerce and recognises the success of one of their 53 accredited Chambers from up and down the country during the last 12 months.
Two of our Members, Woolcool and Laundry Efficiency, are also up for awards in the Green Business of the Year and the Entrepreneur of the Year categories respectively. Both businesses have already won the Game Changer awards for the West Midlands region for 2021 and are now hoping to scoop awards on the national stage.
Staffordshire Chambers CEO, Sara Williams, said: “The Chambers has achieved some remarkable things throughout the pandemic, including receiving over 10,000 calls to our business helpline, facilitating over 1,500 places through the Government’s Kickstart Scheme, supporting 127 people to start their own business, helping 189 businesses through our Mentoring for Growth scheme and facilitating over 200 online events and webinars.
“I am extremely proud of what our team has done for our local business community during this period and have my fingers crossed ahead of the awards ceremony – good luck also to Woolcool and Laundry Efficiency!”
The ceremony will be taking place online on the 9 December 2021. Find out more, here.
